CFA COACHING GUIDELINES
Our qualified coaches follow CFA coaching guidelines, containing recommendations on typical content, important aspects and age specific considerations. The CFA Guidelines for talent and elite development focuses on 3 elements:
We want to educate and guide our players to become self-organized, self-dependent, responsible athletes on and off the field.
The development of individual talent and quality of the play has a higher priority than winning matches.
Our approach is systematic, holistic, documented and development stage specific.
