In the last 12 months, I have been very interested to understand what does “development” truly means in futsal/soccer to the level of world class detail. Its a term used a lot and in every web page. After researching and hearing from some of the best world National coaches, this is the best understanding for me:
1. First: quality of training, based on knowledge, education, research, curiosity and international exposure.
2. Second: deep training environment, this is indeed one of the top qualities of top programs. It has some very clear underlying elements, such as independent vs interdependent training, level of detail and correction, focused intensity and a lot more.
3. Patience: has to follow the first two above. It can not lead :), as previous two must take place, but patience must follow for true development.
