FC WIsconsin DOC Presents "State of the Game" at Nation's Largest Coaching Convention
The world's largest coaching convention is hosted in the United States every January by United Soccer Coaches (formerly the National Soccer Coaches Association of America), with approximately 10,000 coaches in attendance. This year, the United Soccer Coaches Convention was held in Philadelphia, PA, and FC Wisconsin DOC and Girls ECNL President Christian Lavers presented to a packed room on the State of the Game in youth female soccer.
The presentation discussed some common strengths and weaknesses of top level youth female players, some trends in the game itself, and some suggestions on continuing to raise the standard of the game in training and coaching. Video clips from the 2017 ECNL Finals were used to illustrate many points, and several training sessions were distributed to show training ideas for improving player perception and decision-making.
