About Challenger Soccer:
Approximately 1,000 international coaches are selected by Challenger’s recruiting and training team each year. They are all committed and talented coaches, but more importantly they love children and understand how we teach new skills, build confidence and have fun all at the same time!
Teaching the Right Things
To build confidence in players, it’s not enough to just have a great curriculum with the best people teaching it. You have to teach the techniques and tactics in a way that motivates the players to want to practice and to want to improve. Challenger has created a unique teaching methodology that incorporates a progressive series of practices where increased levels of pressure, added restrictions and game-like competition are introduced as players become comfortable with the skill being taught.
Teaching the Right Way
After 20 years of research in over 2,000 communities in the USA and Canada, Challenger has developed an innovative way of coaching your players that revolves around fun, personal challenge, maximum participation and constant positive feedback. The Challenger Way not only addresses the technical, tactical, physical and psychological requirements of the game at each age level, but more importantly it focuses on the child as an individual!
