Coaches

The MSC is currently looking for coaches for youth club teams. Please contact Megan Randoll at 563-262-9631 if interested.

Philosophy

Player development is most important at the MSC. Winning and losing are important at a competitive club, but they should never overshadow the primary purpose of a soccer club, which is to develop the total soccer player. It is important to realize the difference between short term wins and long term victories.

Player development begins with a strong technical foundation in passing, receiving, dribbling, and shooting. The best way to improve one’s technical ability is through repetition, which is why our coaches plan their practice session to maximize touches on the ball for each player. Long lines, standing around, is a waste of time and makes every good soccer coach cringe. As the practice progresses, the pressure on the players is increased and the situation they find themselves is more and more game like. The end of practice usually contains a short-sided directional game (4v4 or 6v6).

Once players have good ability with the ball, then we start to focus on decision making, offensive and defensive shape, and team tactics. Offensively, MSC coaches encourage a creative, possession style game as opposed to the popular direct ball approach. This style of play will enable MSC players to have the tools to play at a higher level and be able to enjoy the game much more. If you want an example of possession soccer watch Barcelona FC play and count the number of passes they string together each time they gain possession. Defensively, MSC coaches emphasize team defense with strong defensive shape. The players learn the difference between pressure, cover, and balance and the responsibilities of the first, second, and third defenders.

Every coach is committed to providing a higher level of coaching and expertise to the youth players in the Muscatine area.
