Dutch Vision

Learn to coach soccer like the Dutch!
Dutch Soccer Vision, a Partner organization with CBC Dutch Touch International, has created a video series for soccer coaches that want to learn the methods, philosophies and approach of the world-renowned Dutch soccer training program. The series is based on the real-world situations that you might find yourself in when training your own team. We filmed our very own Dutch Touch coaches, and then help you understand what they're looking for and trying to achieve with these developing players. Great for ages 8 and up.

Total enjoyment from soccer
When 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 vision.

Many repetitions
Repetition is an important aspect in the process of teaching soccer. Practice, practice and practice again. Doing the same thing over and over again, which was in the early days the case in the street.
  In Training this means:
-- many repetitions
-- not having to wait
-- sufficient balls, goals, etc.
-- good planning and organization
-- quality coaching
Good coaching
Contrary to former street soccer training, matches are accompanied by adults. However, this isn't always successful. It is a pity that youth soccer is often compared with soccer played by adults. Often there are instructions given by coaches that the children don't understand (also parents shouldn't get involved with the coaching).

That's why it is important that coaches understand how children experience soccer and that they know how to make things clear to the children.

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.
