2016 Player / Parent Meeting
Player Development Initiatives
The coaching and playing environment needs to be improved for 6-12 year old's
Too much emphasis placed on the result of the game
The priority should be to develop skills and abilities
Long-term development of players is the top priority
•Kids under the age of 12 don’t win World Cups so we should not treat them like adults or professional players
Players need to be put in the best possible environment to succeed
There are no shortcuts Success requires a long-term approach and commitment
