academy instructors

Total Soccer places a great deal of importance on the quality of instruction. New instructors, no matter how experienced, spend months shadowing existing staff members to learn how Total Soccer runs its training sessions. In essence,Total Soccer believes that coaching at the youth level is about teaching, which is whyTotal Soccer sees its staff as instructors more than anything.

Total Soccer also believes that coaching must be done with professionalism, enthusiasm, and personality. Not everyone can teach. Often it takes a certain personality, a certain aptitude. Taking coaching courses, reading coaching materials, and shadowing peers are all good steps towards building knowledge. Having played the game is also an important source of knowledge. But having knowledge and having the ability to impart that knowledge are two completely different things.Total Soccer understands that distinction and continually works towards providing its staff with the tools necessary to become effective teachers. And like the players themselves, the staff atTotal Soccer are evolving. We don't presume to have all the answers. Teaching performance-based youth sports can never be an exact science because human beings are far too complex and unpredictable, but we are continually striving to become better at what we do.
