FC Hawks Soccer Club: Committed to creating exemplary soccer players on and off the field

Coaching Philosophy

In the same way that students move through a textbook in school, our players will also follow a path from simple to complex. We understand that players can handle less when they are young and more when they have matured mentally and physically. The most foundational element is a players ability to control the body and the ball. Dribbling and skillful touches on the ball are necessary before moving up the ladder to the other components of the game. Like a math teacher building a foundation of basic math, arithmetic, and algebra prior to teaching calculus, we understand that soccer players must build a firm foundation of ball control before they reach what the game will look like when we watch it at the highest level.

We apply the principles of human development to maximize their soccer development. Young players are restricted in their spatial awareness and physical strength. This means young players will spend a lot of time with the ball at their feet and master the elements of the game that they can best handle. As their strength and awareness grows, we will ask them to use larger spaces, see more of the field and send the ball to teammates who are in a better position on the field. A simple way to conceptualize this is where U6-U12 is mostly ME and then U13+ becomes US.
