You know what they say, everyone’s game is different. We see so many talented players, and while they are all great, they are all unique. A different skill set, personality, build, etc. You name it, no one player is the same. It’s part of what makes the game beautiful.
No one tunes into games hoping for them to mirror each other. We like the excitement of seeing different skill sets displayed. This is across all sports, not just soccer.
As I think about some of the soccer greats a few jump out at me:
Beckham had the ability to bend the ball in ways this sport had never seen (or seen it as often). Watch just a few of some of Beckham’s biggest moments and the “bend” that made the phrase we have become so familiar with, “Bend it like Beckham.”
These are just a few examples, the list could go on and on. We know of players who are incredible at winning balls in the air and using their head. There are players on the field who can control the ball and manage the game, orchestrating some amazing things that give meaning to the “beautiful game.”
It is truly remarkable when you think about it.
These players found their skill set and worked to develop it over time. Years and years of practice and millions of touches on the ball have gone into shaping them into the player they have become today.
Now, in 2018, there are so many great tools that can help develop players. Children can get their hands on equipment and lessons that they can use right at home to continue their development.
A top-tier training program (not to mention extremely affordable) like the soccer vortex from Beast Mode Soccer is a great example. This program was created to help players develop all aspects of their game. Everything from control to footwork to passing to finishing, and everything in-between. It includes the mental, physical, and nutrition portions of the game —> Don’t believe me? Check it out!
You also have some fun yet very effective tools available like DribbleUp. All you need is a some space and a phone and BOOM, you are ready to train. With over 75 drills available this virtual training aid will get you the touches you need all while having a blast.
If tools like these don’t excite you for the future of this sport I am not sure what will.
Just like players are custom tailored, so are our custom scarves. Scarves have been around forever. As you may have read in our blog, The History of Soccer Scarves, scarves have a long standing place in the game of soccer.
