Game Model

Game Model

Our mission is to bring top level coaching to grassroots and create a forward-thinking philosophy that is relevant to the modern game. Our model is based on the natural cycle of the match in order to help players understand how to respond in different situations. Organizing blocks of learning in line with the cyclical model creates a logical sequence that enables players to improve their decision making.

By focusing on specific moments within the cycle coaches can isolate decisions that need to be taken and skills that need to be learned. These are then expanded within the curriculum to create well-rounded athletes who are creative, skillful, and mentally tough.
