Last week, our friends at Miami Soccer Convention interviewed former West Ham United and Wales defender Jack Collison. Not only is this is a great perspective of his own personal coaching journey, but Jack also gives an outstanding insight into the into the game model and club philosophy of MLS team Atlanta United, who have built a great reputation for their style of play and the structure of the club.
During the presentation Jack shares some great information including:
- Club pathway for young players from academy to first team
- How they use game model to shape session planning and player profiles
- Differences between tactical philosophy at West Ham and Atlanta United
- The periodization and the weekly schedule for the academy players
- Ways in which individual development plans for young players are structured
- Importance of player ownership and accountability
