Learn How to Play Great Soccer
The main idea behind this soccer training website is to help soccer players become the best soccer player they can be. And also to teach young players how to play great soccer - much like Real Madrid, Arsenal, Manchester United, and Barcelona's tiki taka style. We want to teach young players how to become skillful soccer players, who can take players on and whip in crosses.
This soccer training website is also focused on helping soccer coaches create training sessions and understand the tactics and strategy that are crucial to the game. We want to share our experience in the game and impart this knowledge to players and coaches of all ages and levels of ability.
The website is aimed at
soccer players who are looking to become a great soccer players and want to learn as much as they can. We want to show you everything from what soccer DVDs to buy to what soccer camps to go to some Coerver Coaching drills to try out. For coaches, we want to show you how to get your team to press on defense or counter attack on offense or how to plan out a soccer training session.
Most often, a love for soccer begins with playing with your friends in the park or a makeshift field at home. Often, garage doors become smashed and dented and windows broken, as you smack the ball against whatever is around you in your backyard.
Ideally, as a kid, you're fortunate enough to play with older former professional players - if not, find those older players who are playing all the time. That's the best way to learn. To steal and copy everything the best players are doing - that's sort of a short cut to getting better.
Playing soccer should be a freeing experience, and not necessarily surrounded all the time by coaches. This is a somewhat debatable idea, whether a kid, once having the right technique, should play and play without direction, in a way, to develop his or her own style rather than constantly being drilled to play one way.
Take Lionel Messi, did he learn to dribble like that from a coach? Don't think so, he learned by dribbling on his own when he was very young. He probably loved to cut and dribble past people the first time he touched a ball.
At a young age it's best to just play and learn through playing and watching older talented players. Find a good mentor to look up to and learn from - model your game after theirs. This could be watching a player on TV or an older player that plays on a team near where you live.
And this is where our website comes in, we're here to help you become a great player. We hope to act like a mentor and support system in your efforts to become a skillful and smart soccer player. Help you reach your dreams and achieve your goals as a soccer player. Whether that's eventually playing soccer at the college level or pro level.
At SoccerTrainingInfo.com we will talk about the need to play one and two touch soccer, since at a high level you don't have time to hold on to the ball. However, at the same time, often the greatest skill in soccer is the ability to take on players on. To dribble right at a defender, and cut past them, but this has a time and place on the soccer field, or even a mood - if you're feeling good then go at players - don't force it. We want to push players to play smart soccer but also play freely. Everyone remembers Diego Maradona's dribbling run against England in the 1986 World Cup in Mexico, in which one of the greatest players of all makes an incredible run, that's what's amazing about soccer - those kind of runs.
Plus, by taking on players, you can set up other players, so they are in a position score, pass. But at the same time, making a diagonal pass across the field can open up the whole game. Which can be nearly as great as a dribbling run. The game is about trying to find the player with the most time and space. Yes, soccer is that simple. A long switch from Pirlo or Beckham is as effective and beautiful as a Messi dribbling run.
Growing up in a a small town, with limited access to professional soccer, it was difficult to find good information on how to become a better player. One often had to resort to watching videos or even reading books about the game - where they spell out the moves on the pages.
As a player, I was always trying to find new soccer tips or anything that would make me a better player. That was the idea and reason behind creating this website: to give information to kids in those smaller towns and areas where they don't have as much access to live soccer games, experienced coaches, quality camps, or former professional soccer players that can act like mentors. We want to help direct you to those resources and give you those kinds of soccer tips.
