MM  200 : Skill

The Meulensteen Method 200 Certification Course is an 8-hour course that will provide coaches the tools to successfully coach teach players how to turn technique into a skill they can use in the game. Coaches will successfully be able to build confidence in their players, have them recognize the different 1v1 situations, and be able to select the proper skill to dominate their opponent. This is accomplished through a combination of theoretical and practical learning sessions. The curriculum focuses on youth players, the vital role of technical training, positive coaching, and a player centered approach, and how it relates to developing creative, confident players.
