TUSC philosophy on indoor soccer

“My position is this: street soccer is the most natural educational system that can be found.” Rinus Michels – Dutch National team coach

Fascinating rules emerge in the streets and parks and sandlots and alleyways when children are left to their own devises in sport. So much of youth soccer today is overly organized and structured, and can be damaging to long-term growth and development. At the very least, the current structures do very little to address the children’s love for “play” on their own terms. Too much organization limits a child’s ability to “figure it out on their own” and “fun”. We want to encourage free play and experimentation for young players.

The environment that most closely mirrors this street soccer game experience for us at TUSC is the indoor winter tournament. Therefore we will try to encapsulate some of the lessons and experiences of “street soccer” into that arena by following these guidelines;

  • There should be MINIMAL COACHING from coaches or parent coaches during games, (we would prefer there be none).
  • Coaches watching their team in the stands will ACTIVELY DISCOURAGE “coaching” from their parents and explain why their behavior is inappropriate (educational motives).
  • Coaches will facilitate the division and acquisition of players into a team for the tournament ONLY
  • Ideally Coaches should neither; choose the starting team, assign player positions (including the goalkeeper) assign a formation, or impart a tactical strategy for the game.
  • Players will be actively encouraged to manage their own substitutions.
  • Coaches will instruct their players and parents of these guidelines before a tournament and be prepared to facilitate resolution of problems AFTER each game (if they are present).
