ABOUT RESA MD
We are first and foremost a training organization with a mission to maximize the development of all of our players. Through an effective training philosophy, we believe that we can reach our developmental goals more efficiently than our competitors.
We offer a stimulating and progressive model to all of our teams which we train. In drill and activity selection, we believe it is important for coaches to precisely gauge the level of each group that they train and select activities which best fulfill the players needs pertaining to each component of soccer. Younger or less advanced groups will work on a different set of activities and place more or less emphasis on certain components of soccer than older or more advanced groups. And training sessions are progressive, meaning that each activity, variation of an activity, and training session leads into the next.
We believe it is important to develop physicality and technique, but we place a special emphasis on the development of decision making because the brain is the most important muscle in soccer and the level of intelligence is what separates great players from average players.
In order to develop a players decision making ability, coaches prioritize placing players in game related situations related to the various components of soccer such as possession, counterattacking, switching play, etc where they can practice making the correct decisions.
It is important to allow players to develop by thinking for themselves and making their own decisions so our coaches do not over coach. However, our coaches know when to step in when and make fundamental corrections when players need to be corrected.
Our coaches are also very energetic, positive, and encouraging in training sessions. We believe that the attitude, work ethic, professionalism, and energy of the coach trickles down to the player.
Our mission involves two fundamental components. One is to provide high quality service to our clients which translates to soccer players and teams maximizing their potential on the field. The other component involves developing human beings with great values, full of confidence, and great sportsmanship. We recognize that soccer is more than just a game, it is force that captures the attention and passion of the general population in a profound way. And our role as youth soccer directors, coaches, and administrators is more than a business, it is an opportunity to shape the lives of kids in a positive way.
