From editor of FineSoccer.com Kids Newsletter… A philosophy that is not unique to this program… it is shared by others…
“Too often, I have heard players say “if only the coach would give me a chance…”.
The thing to realize is coaches don’t give players chances. Players EARN chances.
If you want to show you can score goals in a game, first show it in training.
If you want to show you are a better keeper than the starting keeper, first show it in training.
If you want to show you deserve to play an entire game but now are only getting play half the game, then show it in the half you are getting.
It’s easy to say what you could do if given a chance, the key is to show it WHEN given a chance.
I do realize there are many players who feel they are “gamers” and don’t show well in training but if they want to earn the right to show in games, they need to first show in any opportunity they can.
Don’t wait to be given an opportunity, if you want the chance, take advantage of any opportunities you can.”
“If Not Now, When?”
The success of the season is NOW, in the off-season, not at the start of the season.
