SSC GAME MODEL

We strive at Steamboat Soccer Club to have a methodology and game model that is the foundation that connects our age groups, links learning and development across the age groups, and gives our teams a distinct style of play. We believe having some consistency or common bond between our teams will help with our objectives to develop the player as a whole. This allows our club to have a consistent message to our players, coaches, and parents at every age group, which supports our club's vision and mission. However, we do encourage our coaches to insert their personalities into their teams, which will give each team their own spark or identity.

We ask all of our coaches when delivering coaching points with their players and designing training sessions to first, foremost, and above all to keep in mind our club's Guiding Principles. We then encourage them to consider one or more of the following Steamboat Soccer Club Principles of Play:





Managing one's SELF

 

  • Recognize & Solve (problems)
  • Confident
  • Decide
  • Create & Deceive
  • Mobile
  • Execute
  • Hard working
  • Reflect
  • Communicate

Managing SPACE

 

  • Create Space
  • Support & Position
  • Close Space & Deny (opponent playing forward)

Managing the BALL

 

  • Attack / Advance forward
  • Play into space / Circulate Ball
  • Play Simple & with Purpose
  • Pressure, Cover, Balance
  • Contain or Tackle
  • Recover Ball / Possession

We then ask coaches, as they design their training sessions and look to EDUCATE their players, to consider how each of the above Principles of Play relate to each Phase of the Game.
