Practice what the players will be doing in the game on the weekend!!!


I might sound like a broken record but it’s so important that practices are geared to what the players will be doing in games. Technique, Technique, Technique… passing, receiving, dribbling, heading, shooting, etc..are very important in order to do any tactics: 1v1, 2v2 (great games). When you help them develop their ball skills, the easier the drills become,¬† which transitions to the field. Don’t forget what I told you about how the players learn. 3 Steps: Basic- No pressure, Medium Pressure, Full pressure.

About Coach Cook

I first want to mention my loving wife Megan (Jameson) Cook. Who has blessed my life and made me a better person. My mother who was very supportive in all my youth endeavors and all my friends that are still in my life today. I am a college graduate of Greenville College (Illinois) where I attained a B.S. in Physical Edu. with a minor in coaching and a Drivers Edu. endorsement. During my education, I was fortunate to play college soccer as a goalkeeper. I participated in 5 winning seasons (red shirt year) with the program, and experienced post-season tournaments (conference, regional & national level) throughout my 5 years. This is a program that is derived from high expectations for the athletes as a student, player and person, which was taught to me through the game of soccer. This page is designed to help coaches in the Harrisonville Soccer Club (HSC) mold and shape the soccer players of today and tomorrow. View all posts by Coach Cook
