Holistic approach to Training...
For a player to develop to his full potential, all factors of performance need to be addressed. It is impossible to expect one coach to fully develop a player in every area.
What differentiates players? What makes one player better than another? The answer is simple, Factors of Performance!
There are various factors that influence the performance of a player, tactical awareness, technical ability, mental astuteness and physiological development (Endurance, Speed, Strength etc.), besides other social factors.
Amateur coaches have very limited time with their players; the majority of this time is used to improve the player’s technical ability. For a player to develop to his full potential, all factors of performance need to be addressed. It is impossible to expect one coach to fully develop a player in every area. This is where ASP plays a major role; they are experts in their field and can identify and rectify weaknesses in a player’s Physiological development.
In my experience with Sean Van Staaden, I have seen young players develop, not only from a physiological point of view, but holistically as footballers. A player who feels physically good will be able to execute technical moves easier, be able to concentrate for longer, will be more confident, have a good self-esteem and become an overall better player. Having this physiological advantage gives players the edge over their opponents.
I highly recommend ASP to all aspiring footballers and fully endorse their program.
