Combined or detached from club, team and point games, we offer additional training sessions. In doing so, the players, without the team/club/score pressure can always come to new challenges and tasks, and then understand what a possible solution may look like.
In our view, soccer encompasses not only technique, athleticism and tactics, but also the most underrated factors such as cognitive skills as well as personality. We don’t want footballers and children who function like robots, but rather players who understand why they do something on the pitch: precisely this doing not only in connection with soccer, but also in social interaction.
This cooperative togetherness is promoted not only in competitions among each other (being able to win/lose) but also in finding solutions together (communication/finding a role in discussion).
According to our philosophy, the training is about understanding the basics of this great sport. In doing so, we rely on the discoverer in each of us, in short: intrinsic motivation.
This little explorer goes on a journey with us in a varied and intensive training to find out the many “why” questions in soccer:
Why is it useful to run free to that spot?
Why is it important to hit the ball at this particular point?
Why is it good to know where to take the 1st contact?
Why do Messi and Ronaldo score so many more goals than other strikers?
This is where our principles come into play. These are always the same – no matter on which position a player is. Through this type of training, it is later possible to adapt to any game system according to his principles. Not only to adapt, but to consciously execute his new tasks.
This is where our training organization comes into play, which is implemented in different stations under the direction of top trained coaches. Different game forms with different rules and tasks, but also a lot of goal shooting with various technical components or cognitive “thinking along” are important in our opinion in every training.
The goal is always to teach the player in a playful way that every action in soccer is followed by a follow-up action. It must always be “thought along” – in game forms but also in the goal kick. The players should understand that every action should be done with a “plan” and thus there must be a goal in mind for every action, preferably to score a goal. The exact goal setting results from the conversation between the coach and the player on the field.
In addition to trying out and tinkering with one’s athletic abilities, the necessary discipline in oneself and one’s teammates are important building blocks. The tolerance to make one’s own mistakes, to stand by them and to want to improve them must also be accepted with regard to one’s environment.
The question of “why” a child plays soccer is usually answered with a simple sentence:
It’s fun to kick.
We also believe that this point is important. Nevertheless, we want to teach the children that it can also be fun to constantly improve and to want to know more and more themselves.
In short: to pursue one’s “why” questions in this area of interest. In addition to the effect of understanding soccer better as a result, the joy of learning is also conveyed for life to come. The focus on the now should be a constant companion of every action.
As we have just explained, the players have the most fun when they can simply kick. We want everyone to be involved, to move around a lot and to “have” to think for themselves because of the different rules.
The kicking in and of itself is also what is ultimately decisive in the competition at the weekend.
Last but not least, calls for “kickers”, “street footballers” or “dribblers” have also become louder and louder at the DFB.
All our training forms always have the big picture in mind in the most realistic form of the sport. The KICKING.
In addition to the performance-oriented training, we not only offer further training for the players, but also want to get the club and the coaches on board.
For this reason, we have decided to involve the club coaches – if they are interested – in the training under our guidance.
Regular exchange brings them closer to our philosophy.
