Mindset Training


Individual training for
cognitive guidance & education for the improvement of tactical intelligence and psychological strength.

Over the last decade two trends have emerged regarding specialization in soccer training: individual "skill" work and "speed & agility"
training. Both of these areas are essential to developing a high quality soccer player. These two areas, most commonly referred to as
"Technical" and "Physical", are two of the four cornerstones of player development. But what of the other two areas? It has become apparent
to CSC that while players may be able to find opportunities to improve the technical and physical components of their
game, the opportunities
for improving the equally relevant cornerstones of Tactical Intelligence and Psychological Strength are
practically non-existent.

Tactical Intelligence (TI) and Psychological Strength (PS) are complex areas, but to put it simply: TI can be identified as the awareness and
ability to respond correctly in any given game-situation situation, and PS: the
ability to welcome adversity and set backs as learning experiences.
These are both concepts that were always taught to CSC players since the club's
inception. However; up until this moment they have never
been broken down to specific areas to be mentored to
players in a specialized program. Now they are.

Developing Tactical Intelligence and Psychological Strength is not just important. It isn't just a "bonus," and it should not be a mere after thought.
These are both crucial, necessary, indispensable subjects that one has no choice but to develop if even the slightest competence is to be

If your child is a serious player, and serious about their improvement, then he or she should most certainly enroll in this program.

Lessons are booked in 6-session blocks, with one lesson per week for 6 weeks.

There are no try-outs for this program, however, Mindset Training is only available to 11 - 16 year-old club players. As this is a training
program and therefore no teams are formed, any player from any club may participate.
