Coaching Philosophy Jerry Concannon USSF National “A” Coaching License USYSA National Youth License Owner & Director, QuickSkills Soccer LLC Head Coach Springdale High School Girls Soccer Director of Coaching & Player Development, North United FC PA West ODP Staff Coach PA West Coaching Education Staff Instructor Former Player, Marquette University, Milwaukee WI (Division 1) As a coach I try to create a soccer learning environment that is economical and age appropriate. I believe that positive coaching and reinforcement helps to foster player confidence and encourage risk taking. A calm demeanor is used when coaching. One objective is to create better decision makers and establish a sense of personal responsibility and proactivity. Another objective is to instill within the players a respect for themselves, the team, the coaches, the opponents, and the game itself. A natural consequence would be to establish an appreciation and passion for the game of soccer. I believe that a high level of professionalism, organization, and communication are keys to achieving these objectives. Teaching players the roles and responsibilities of various positions will help improve their knowledge of the game and make them into well-rounded players. My intention is to honor the game by playing an attractive brand of soccer that both players and fans can enjoy. The two fundamental pillars of my philosophy are: winning and character lessons. Competition is good and learning to compete effectively is important. Trying to win is the fabric of the sports experience. Players and teams make commitments to goals and work to attain them because they are trying to win. This creates an opportunity for great things to happen. The other objective is helping the players find the value of character lessons that are learned from striving on the field. These lessons will reveal themselves in the short term. They will also most certainly have bearing on the player’s lives beyond the soccer experience such as in their education, profession, citizenship, values, or family life. In addition, I believe that if coaches expect players to develop as players then it is reasonable for players to expect coaches to develop as coaches. Therefore, continuing education is an integral part of my coaching philosophy.
