The Champion Mindset

By Mark Phillips, CoachUp Nation, 11/28/17, 12:00PM CST


Everything else you can develop and learn, but if you don’t have the mindset that you are going to do whatever it takes, you will never reach your true potential.

Soccer worldwide is big business — there are billions of dollars at stake and every young player dreams of claiming his or her small piece. Each year the sponsorship deals, TV revenues and commercial interests of soccer globally increase. The MLS continues to enjoy exponential growth with new franchises entering the league annually, and the franchises in the league continue to grow.

The amount of information available for young players and coaches is unprecedented — you can find any soccer drill you can image through a simple Google search. To be honest, there is now too much information available, and it can become confusing, especially for inexperienced coaches who are either parent volunteers looking to make their sessions the best they can, or newly-qualified coaches who want to prove themselves.
