The first step in helping your players reach their potential is understanding where they are in their development journey. Over the next four posts we'll talk about the Stages of Development, what to expect at each one, and how to help your players jump to the next Stage.
Step 1: Understand what it takes. Players who spend quality time with the ball on their own are more technical, earn more playing time, love the game more and stay with the sport longer than those who only do the required training with their club and school teams.
Step 2: Watch the videos in this post, and the next three posts, to see how players ages U8 to U19 master the ball at home
Watch Stage I u8-u11
See one early and one late Stage 1 player. Although both are young players, older players with little experience would start here as well.
