Challenges with Coaching Soccer

Challenges with coaching soccer remain that there just isn't enough time during practice for a club coach to cover everything that is needed to train both tactical skills and the technical skills and decision making skills needed. I know that because I've been a club coach for years, while managing coaches and teams at the highest level. This lack of time is no fault of the club coach, they are all working at the pace that is expected. I take my hat off to these club coaches every day, as I know what a challenge it is working with young athletes at all ability and skill levels. We have developed a unique combination of both technical coaching instruction, real player video, and direct coaching via video to deliver a powerful development program based on decision-making, or Soccer IQ.

The Solution

At Coach Tony Merola, we have developed a lifestyle and soccer development program "The Solution" that you can take home with you, and manage with your smartphone.  Coach Tony Merola Soccer Development program address both physicality and decision-making skills.
