The evolution of the youth sector in football, differences and considerations

Premise

Today, societies are facing the evolution / involvment of football in the youth sector (and I speak about the provincial and district camps) which, over a few years, require a change in the technical approach and not;

 

Differences

The life of today’s kids is very sedentary; the activities that in the past helped to develop basic motive schemes (oratories, sub-chase camps) are becoming less and less, and are replaced by computers and telephones;

The so-called “road” is useless to say it was also at the level of character, comparison with others the iteration of society today is minimized by social issues and as already pointed out several times with the advent of technology, I personally see among today’s many guys Less irreverence and bitterness than the past;

If in the past the work included the management of individuality, the categorization of the single team available and disciplinary principles, today in a football where tactics speak on all channels, you should work with the kids more on the coordinative point of view Technician igniting them and giving him confidence to boost his self-esteem, a totally inverse process in my opinion over 20 years that requires an adaptation of presidents, executives and coaches.

 

Example

I happened to attend guardians and executives who for reasons of responsibility forbid the boys who come first to the field to play autonomously before the arrival of the coach, I have made the reversal of this habit one of the small elements of my work credo, I managed to get the boys half an hour before the training session had their spaces (tennis court, cage 2 vs 2) their freedom to play outside of the training session, trying to stimulate the arrival to the field in advance;

 

Conclusions

I think we should start from all of these small details to support today’s boys approaching the world of balloons, I think we need to stimulate them to find freedom of play even before a fictional path

 

4 vs 4 + low outdoor and high training 4-4-2

Defense training at 4 Sarri

In this video, Sarri’s Napoli is trained with 8 defenders, 4 exercising in the defensive phase, the other 4 initially rolling ball afterwards jumping the man creating a covered ball situation and verting toward the door.

In the exercise the defenders

Slip through the ball while remaining compact
Recovering feet forward by following the movement of the balloon when from the outside in possession back to a central
The outside exits when the ball goes side-by-side and the others run the covers on one line
The three in the cover come out when sideways leaving the low exterior defending it is jumped to the center and a filter ball reaches the door
