Jurgen Klinsmann the head coach of the US Men’s National Team discusses ‘Coach Development’ in this great interview. He talks about the desire to continue your education as a coach, striving to expand your knowledge base and identify coaching methods that will benefit the players you coach.
He makes a valid point that pertains to always be looking to learn something new as the game is continuing to move forward. He is so right with this – the new wave of coaching is certainly becoming more fruitful both in terms of development and success.
What can we take from this? Be open minded – there is some much to learn from other sports and disciplines that will transfer to soccer. Examine different methods and look at ways they may benefit your coaching/program. If you find something that we as soccer coaches will benefit from then please do share with us all.
