Technical Skills Videos
At Newton Girls Soccer our philosophy of how we play the beautiful game is centered around player development and enjoyment of the game. We as a club aim to develop skilled, confident and creative soccer players in a FUN, positive learning environment teaching them all aspects of the game based on the four pillars of players development.
The TECHNICAL segment is heavily encouraged by the U.S. Soccer Federation who highlight “The most fundamental skill in soccer is individual mastery of the ball and the creativity that comes with it. This should be a priority in training and games, especially in the early years. As this skill is mastered, the rest of the game becomes easier — both to teach and learn. Practices should be built around facilitating the development of the skills necessary to move and control the ball well.” This message is clear and concise, that is, youth players should be encouraged, motivated and coached to develop individual ball skills. We know that effective skills development comes from constant repetitive activities and that it take years of deliberate practice to develop an elite athlete.
As part of this section we have uploaded various videos of technical skills from fantastic resources such as New York Red Bulls, Soccer Plus, NSCAA, Inside Soccer, The Coaching Manual and many more. (All rights and content owned by individual video owner)
