Especially during World Cups, experts and fans can clearly observe what characterises football players and teams in the elite class:
How can young football-inspired players acquire the hands-on qualities of an elite player and reach their ultimate goal or become a fulfilled community player? A patient, systematic and optimal training process will provide the foundation of both excellence and love for the game.
A clear distinction between stages of a players’ development is needed, guiding the players very progressively toward adult football. Based on a player centred approach, the training stages outlined here provide coaches and administrators with guidelines for each stage. Description of the different stages offers “what’s happening?” during this period and guidelines for both the “community” and “talented” players where the environment allow it.
