There are small clubs who pop up all the time in Beijing and they disappear as quickly as they come. They charge high fees for a foreign (Person) coach and think it will work. A good coach works hard at always improving and always developing new ways to improve and make sessions better for their club and players but new clubs coming in, taking players and offering low prices is just a thing in Beijing which doesn’t help the grassroots system.
Do not get me wrong if one of my players decides to go to another coach/club I will never be upset. Every good coach is different and has something different and new to offer players
but… So many clubs get players and coach them incorrectly and players don’t progress, and fall out of the grassroots system altogether which is so very sad to find out.Clubs should not be looking for amazi美图秀秀网页版,一位外籍青训足球教练十年来在我国目睹之现状（下）,斯柯达速派ngly qualified coaches and with great CV’s form professional cubs. Clubs should be looking at people that 淘客帮手inspire kids and make them laugh and inspire them to succeed but also be able to control a group, communicate and work with others. Certificates don’t make a good coach, the person delivering the session correctly, is the one that gets the most out of players.
These coaches will build players and make it fun and educational and develop a system that China needs, one with fun, passion and love and not all about money, success and robots.
Feel free to ask me questions and give feedback. I am always happy to learn and develop and think of new ways of thinking and developing myself to develop others.
There can and should be a bright future for Chinese grassroots football, with hard work, passionate coaches, and people to take it onwards and upwards.
There are fundamental problems I see in China that stop the development of youth football. We need to remember that football starts r护眼宝ight at the bottom, with the grassroots players from 4 years old. This should be the main focus to develop a footballing pyramid that can benefit the whole Chinese footballing system and build a real football culture and increase participation at all levels and ages.
Grassroots to professional level
Recent studies show that the basics to becoming a professional athlete are 10,000 hours of training and match play. That is 3 hours a day, 20 hours a week for ten years. In an ideal system with good coaches, clubs, field space, clubs to play against and of course the money to pay for it. So even before you have touched a ball this becomes a difficult task for most people or aspiring football players. This doesn't take into account the physical and other basic requirements of strength, speed, endurance and the extra fitness and strength training needed.
Let me try to go into more details:
Coaches- A players first soccer coach is the most important, this coach can make or break a child’s future. If the player doesn't enjoy the session and the coach and the football environment, then it is over before it has begun. This is why a new coach needs to create the passion, the love and the drive to a young player in a fun educational environment.
Clubs- Having choices of clubs is the best way to insure players have choice and every club is different, some clubs focus on winning at all costs, some focus on fun participation and some半夏 focus on player development and winning and losing as a normal 美图秀秀网页版,一位外籍青训足球教练十年来在我国目睹之现状（下）,斯柯达速派factor. Each has its place on a player’s growth and development.
Field Space- No fields to train, no fields to play then you are limited in training and players reaching their potential. Without a field then there is no football. It is simple reality that this is becoming hardemofosr and harder in many countries.
Money- Every country is different in this. Some countries have great programs for kids to go play for little money and they are the lucky ones for sure. These countries tend to have a well developed fo会说话的金杰2otballing system and pyramid and the market is full if not saturated with clubs, fields and players.
In China, this is not the case and money is essential. Breaking it down to the 10,000 hours.
A club charges the goi骆雁ng rate of 150rmb per 90-minute session.
10,000/1.5*150 = 1,000000rmb
That is 1 million rmb to give a child the chance to play professional football at the elite level.
Now let’s say I take a 4美图秀秀网页版,一位外籍青训足球教练十年来在我国目睹之现状（下）,斯柯达速派-year-old player for training once or twice per week maximum and if they stay with me until they are 14 years old and classes are always around 90 minutes and the also play matches with my club, then they will have done around 2000 hours of football. They will then need to realistically go on to do full time football 3 hours per day from then onwards to around the age of 20 years old to reach those 10,000 hours and be considered good enough to play at a the higher “professional” level.
I now work with 2-year-old players and parent’s classes to build passion and love for the game and build a culture for parents and players alike to do something together and keep them playing and bathdeveloping.
Having read all the above basic elements a player needs to succeed in China, do you think this is possible in the system we have now?
Clubs want to make money, win games and get more players. I totally understand the business of football. But… Being a humble coach and someone tadzophat wants China to succeed and fulfil it potential. Then there has to be a change. China needs to use its huge numbers of children, its huge amount of wealth and its vision just like the Beijing Olympics. It is possible and it should be possible.
At this moment in time there are many obs医亨风流tacles that stand in the way; money, red tape, old fashioned views, outdated coaching, a lack of neutral leagues, no real advocates who can and will stand up and make a change.
I have been here ten years and counting, I love my work, I love my city and I will no rest, I will not give up and I will not stop building on what I believe in and what I think China is capable of.
