Why Street Soccer?
The small-sided games movement requires us to maximize ball contacts by reducing the number of players competing for possession. Pick up or Street Soccer allows for maximum touches on ball.
Structured soccer reduces the creativity aspect of the game. Most practices today lack sufficient 1v1 situations. The 1v1 duel is the foundation of the game. Players must be part of 1v1, 2v2, 3v3 learning and creative moments to succeed. Youth players are still uncomfortable in small-sided environments. Most of them struggle in solving the problems of tight space. We want to get young players into an environment that stimulates decision making, deception, proper touches on the ball, and creativity.
Street Soccer will help us accomplish that.
