The underlying philosophy of PlayMaker Training is that "you can't have advanced tactics without having players with advanced technique." Additionally, if you have watched soccer for a long period of time you have probably been able to pick up on the different tactics applied by certain managers and coaches around the world. Flat Back 4? 3 up top? The role of the #10? High pressure? Low block? Counter attacking? All of these change over time, what has NEVER changed, is the ability on the ball, at the highest levels. While tactics are fleeting and seemingly changing every year, the technical capabilities of players, have ALWAYS remained the same. Dominate the ball and you're able to adapt to any coaches system.

I consider myself a soccer teacher. Not a soccer coach. Many coaches will tell a player what to do, when to do it, and where to do it. My focus is to give each of my players the WHY.
