3 WELCOME TO GLOBAL PREMIER SOCCER PETER BRADLEY GPS DIRECTOR OF COACHING Dear GPS coach, I would like to welcome you to the GPS family. The essence of the club is to provide a positive, enjoyable and challenging learning environment for all of our players that will push them to reach their full potential. We want our coaches to be students of the game and to start becoming more accountable for their own learning pathway. In order to do this, coaches will need to take on more responsibility for their own development on and off the field. This handbook will provide coaches with more information on what the expectations are from the club with regards to the style of play that we want to see permeate all of our teams, the systems of play and the roles within those systems that players need to be familiar with, and tools to be able to evaluate individual training and game performances. We hope that our coaches will find a lot of their questions answered by referring to their handbook and that it will become a valuable tool in their development journey. I wish all our coaches a very happy and healthy 2015/16 season and look forward to seeing you all on the field. Best wishes Peter Bradley, GPS Director of Coaching 3.

4 MISSION STATEMENT The mission of Global Premier Soccer is to be a leader in the development and growth of soccer across North America and beyond. We will establish an identity of excellence as we pursue our pathway to success on and off the field, with our primary focus being the development of players and people. We will develop players who can compete at the highest level of soccer around the world. 4.

7 GPS FC BAYERN NATIONAL TEAM PROGRAM 7.

8 STYLE OF PLAY CONFIDENT GPS teams are made up of confident players. This confidence comes from self belief, hard work, repetition and team camaraderie, all instilled in a positive coaching environment. GAME INTELLIGENT GPS teams are intelligent. Players are students of the game and are able to make adjustments based on what they see on the field. POSSESSION-BASED GPS teams play an indirect style of soccer but have an awareness of the most appropriate penetrating pass. BUILD FROM THE BACK GPS teams always look to build attacks from the back as opposed to playing kick and run soccer. ATTACK-MINDED GPS teams play the game with flair and creativity. DEFENSIVE ORGANIZATION GPS teams understand how and when to apply pressure in order to regain possession of the ball. PHYSICALITY GPS teams excel in the physical element of the game - exhibiting pace and power. GPS teams are hard working, strong in the tackle and always play within the laws of the game.

This is stated in the handbook each player & parent signs at the start of the season

16 PLAYER POOL SYSTEM Each tier of the GPS Junior Premier Program operates a player pool system (with exception of NPL team). At this stage of a young player s development, there are a lot of variables that can enhance or impact development and we want to ensure that our players are given the necessary support and time to be able to reach their full potential. While we fully understand how winning can positively affect player development, it is a by-product of a solid technical-tactical base and of a club s player development philosophy. The player pool system provides our coaching staff the opportunity to move players throughout the year to allow maximum opportunity and ensure players are placed in the right environment to maximize their development. Players are split based on ability, attitude, commitment to the game and what GPS think is best for the player s development. The pool system will see all players in the team at that age group brought together and train as a group with the two coaches. (1 coach at u13+) - U9+U10 this group will be around players- 7 aside - U11+U12 the group will be around players- 9 aside - u13+ the group will be around players - 11 aside From this pool of players two teams will be selected to play each weekend. The players will be selected to play in games at the weekend based on training performance but also based on coach discretion. This may involve wanting to see a player in a different role or environment on any given week. The Head Coach will communicate the team split by the end of every Monday so that parents will have a week to plan accordingly for the game logistics. The expectation over the course of a full year is that the Head Coach will use the fall season to allow some movement between teams, the winter season will see the players train together as a group, and the spring season will see a little less movement between groups. But the Head Coach will always reserve the right to move a player as they see fit. We will follow the same curriculum for all our players but we will differentiate content based on making sure that all our players are being challenged appropriately. It is important that we train our young players how to handle and deal with a variety of situations, and how to deal and cope with adversity. Our aim is to ensure that our young players get the appropriate level of enjoyment, challenge and improvement from their experience in the Junior Premier program so that they get the necessary base of education in all 4 pillars of the game technical, tactical, physical and psychological

17 PLAYER EVALUATION Evaluation and assessment is an important part of every player s long-term development. Every GPS player will receive continual feedback throughout the soccer year. However, GPS players will also undergo 3 formal assessments during the year - this will highlight areas where a player is succeeding but also areas of their game that they need to address in order to improve. The GPS Player Evaluation schedule will be as follows: - U9, U10 - & U11 End of Fall season verbal evaluation. Player and parents are to be in attendance at the evaluation meeting. End of Spring season written evaluation. Player and parents are to be in attendance at the evaluation meeting. U12, U13 & U14 End of Fall season verbal evaluation. Player and parents are to be in attendance at the evaluation meeting. End of winter verbal evaluation given to player. End of Spring season written evaluation. Player and parents are to be in attendance at the evaluation meeting. U15, U16 End of winter verbal evaluation. End of Spring season written evaluation. Parent attendance is optional at U16. U17 & U18 End of winter verbal evaluation with player. End of Spring season written & verbal evaluation with player

18 PLAYER EVALUATION Attached is an example of the evaluation documents that are used during the Player / Coach end of season evaluation

19 SELF-EVALUATION: PRACTICE As well as coach feedback, we encourage all GPS players to constantly evaluate themselves. Print off the Self evaluation tools and track your performance through the season. This will serve as a tool to monitor what you feel has gone well and areas where you feel you need to improve. PRACTICE TRACKER SESSION # DATE: HOW DID YOU FEEL BEFORE PRACTICE? HOW DO YOU FEEL YOU PERFORMED DURING PRACTICE? DESCRIBE THE SESSION. WHAT WAS THE THEME? WHAT WERE THE KEY COACHING POINTS? WHAT DID YOU LEARN? SESSION # DATE: HOW DID YOU FEEL BEFORE PRACTICE? HOW DO YOU FEEL YOU PERFORMED DURING PRACTICE? DESCRIBE THE SESSION. WHAT WAS THE THEME? WHAT WERE THE KEY COACHING POINTS?

20 SELF-EVALUATION: GAMEDAY As well as coach feedback, we encourage all GPS players to constantly evaluate themselves.

22 PLAYER PERFORMANCE WARM UP UP PROTOCOL Warm up is an intergal part of gameday or practice preparation. It is a period of time for players to bring their bodies and minds to the required state in order to enable peak performance. All GPS warm ups will be structured as follows: - PHASE 1. Increasing heart rate Jogging Sprints Lateral shuffling Backwards movements PHASE 2. Dynamic stretching Leg muscles Upper body and core PHASE 3. Ball Work/Tactical & Technical Work (7v7/9v9/11v11) Unopposed Opposed Team units PHASE 4. High intensity exercise prior to kick off Warm up will be led by team captains however, it is imperative that all players within the team know the team warm up routine and the benefits of every exercise that is performed
