School of Ginga methodology is based on the long term development of it's players and is focused on five key points.
MASTER THE BALL
In order to achieve excellence in soccer, technical ability must be taught and encouraged at all levels of the game. Ball mastery leads to confidence and overall more enjoyment of the game. Therefore each training session will emphasize the importance of ball control, ball manipulation, and technical ability.
“There has to be thought behind every touch of the ball.”
- Dennis Bergkamp
Technical, tactical, physical, and cognitive development elements will be present in all training exercises. These elements can vary, depending on the training session theme, to create purposeful learning principles to be successful.
“Success is not accident. It is hard work, perseverance, learning, studying, sacrifice, and most of all love of what you are doing or learning to do”
Technique is critical to long term success as a soccer player. Through repetition, our players and teams will learn game behaviors through training exercises. Using a balance of low and high pressure scenarios, players will develop while being challenged and finding successes.
"You can't say you can control the ball until you can do it with your head up. When you can pick your head up, you can play with a smile and enjoy your soccer."
- Lillian Thuram
The style of play is important for each player in the School of Ginga. Our detailed curriculum allows cohesiveness between coaches, players and methodology.
“We are defenders who attack and attackers who defend.”
- Pep Guardiola
