Fixing confidence is obviously “mental”…
…but usually not “mental” in the way most people define “confidence”.
Confidence comes from good performance and the lack of confidence often stems from poor skills leading to poor game performance.
Sometimes a player has great technical skills but still lacks confidence in a game setting.
The usual culprit is a simple lack of understanding of strategy and positioning.
We call this “soccer IQ”.
This lack of “soccer IQ” destroys their confidence even when their physical skills are high.
These players need help with the mental side of the game to improve confidence.
Helping these players is a matter of coaching them with game video.
Not some generic game video, but game video where they are in the game.
They need to see a birds eye view of themself to understand what they are doing wrong and how to fix their personal problems.
~ Passing back into pressure?
~ Not recognizing space?
~ Dribbling too much?
~ Not dribbling enough?
~ Playing too straight?
There are basic things that youth players can improve to make it much easier to play the ball successfully.
SocrPro allows a player / parent / coach to upload a game video and distribute this video to any number of people, anywhere in the world.
This allows you to do the coaching for them, or to hire the task out to any coach anywhere in the world.
This coaching feedback increases soccer IQ that leads to better play.
Better play leads to more confidence.
More confidence leads to even better play.
