|Total enjoyment from soccer
players are motivated practicing their sport, they'll learn more from it, and
therefore, become a better soccer player. So our aim is to get as much pleasure
from soccer as possible. From soccer training the most enjoyment can be gained
in situations where players can score as much as possible and also have to
defend. On a full size pitch children don't have enough touches on the ball and
therefore don't learn enough.
So we suggest that children up to the age
of 11 should play games with smaller sides and on smaller fields. This way they
become more in contact with the ball and in match-situation this improves their
an important aspect in the process of teaching soccer. Practice, practice and

children experience soccer and that they know how to make things clear to the
Teaching soccer, coaching soccer, requires a lot of knowledge
and understanding of the game.
The "Dutch Vision" on coaching is a
method designed to teach the youth in a better way.
We are convinced
that this is the way to develop better soccer players and to get more enjoyment
out of the game.
