A talented player is one that makes the right decision at the right time and executes flawlessly. But how do we train intelligence?
In this course, we will explore the shortcomings of traditional training and present a more intelligent approach to developing footballers of great vision and precision.
We are honored to be hosted by DUSC. We are pleased that the leadership of the club is committed to professional development and has graciously facilitated this opportunity for coaches in the region.
We are all responsible for serving young people and to do so we must hone our craft as coaches. We thank our hosts and looking forward to coming to New York City.

This course will be presented in two learning environments: the classroom and the field. All participants will be actively engaged in interactive group discussions.
We engage coaches in interactive workshops to detail the fundamental concepts of intelligent training. In these workshops we will determine the unique characteristics of competitive athletes and map out an effective strategy to develop intelligent footballers.
