SR Training Belief

Many Clubs state they are focused on developing the player but it is not true.  For many Clubs the focus is winning. Recruiting, try-outs, promoting college scholarships and college entrance are the norm.  GREAT goals…but not for a young person not yet in High School!

What happens when a young player is on a

team focused on winning?


  1. Players lose playing time. ANY athlete at ALL level of competition play a game because they LOVE it, it’s FUN and it drives them to get better. When did we lose sight of that? When a young athlete loses playing time it’s because the Club/Coach wants to Win!
  2. Players fill just one position over and over again. Players do not get the chance to learn new skills, different decision making, a new experience promoting higher interest and passion.
  3. Advanced players on a team play more, take free kicks, corner kicks and penalty shots. They are given more attention and hold positions that see more action. A young advanced player may be older by 6 months, naturally bigger and faster. Unfortunately, due to early success the advanced player may not develop skill he/she will desperately need to continue playing and the less advanced player may lose interest due to lack of playing time and feeling under appreciated.
  4. Many Club Teams recruit players on other teams. Where does that put your son or daughter?
    • Am I against Club Tournament Teams? NO WAY! My 4 kids played Tournament Teams! Multiple sports on multiple Club teams. It was a great way to grow up! But, not once did the promise of individual training ever happen. Unfortunately, that is not just our personal experience. It was repeated many times from one player to the next…in all sports!

      It is supposed to be about the player…not the Club Team.

    • A Soccer Rig training session is about ball control, deliberate skill to beat your defender, to improve your natural ability as far as your son/daughter desires. It is a full 60 to 90 minute session of ball control. Honestly…it is AWESOME!
    • Soccer Rig provides the non-threatening and challenging experience to risk and get better.
    • Soccer Rig promotes effort and risk. Take chances by pushing your ability which will lead to failure. Then, what do you do? Find a way to pull back effort or try again? Pulling back effort can be seen as a very natural reaction. I consistently see young people as amazing risk takers as they attempt new learning, fail and trying again. That kind of effort and risk taking is the ultimate growth experience. You learn to own your life!

      That is consistently rewarded at a Soccer Rig training session.

    • Have a PLAN to own your life! 62% of successful people have a plan they focus on every day!
