Introduction to Dutch Coaching and Training Methods - 2012

What has made Dutch soccer so successful for so long? The answer lies in their organization, structure, philosophy, mentality and how they prepare coaches to train young players. The most important element to their success is the proper training of their young players. Every pyramid is built from a strong foundation, and Dutch soccer proves that time and again. We will touch on some of the key elements that are characteristic to the Dutch approach to soccer.

The course will consist of videos, notes, power points, articles, coaches and their philosophies and training techniques. The training of Ajax youth will serve as a model. Ajax is world renowned for their production of talent. We will explore the world of Dutch soccer and try to understand the complexity of their simplicity. Johan Cruyff, the greatest Dutch player ever, says 'the hardest thing to do is to make it simple.'

The class will meet on Tuesdays, June 5 through July 24, at CBC High School --- (classroom B120) from 6:30 to 8:00 pm. There is no charge for this course. (Enter the school from the rear of the building - by the loading dock - at the northeast corner)
