The technical team were privileged to attend a presentation from clinical psychologist Oliver Fuchs on the importance of the mental aspect of the game of football, not only for the player, but for those who are coaching the game too.
Fuchs offered valuable insight into developing young minds on and most importantly, off the pitch, from diverse backgrounds.
Chairman, Mark Byrne, has always recognized the importance of developing one for life after the game of football, having seen the all too harsh reality of the short nature of the career of a footballer on many occasions. Fuchs introduced various methods and techniques to more effectively and efficiently connect with the players, highlighting that the approach should be tailored to different age groups for better results. This marks the beginning of a new and innovative plan in South African youth football, starting with the future generation, in the pursuit of developing all aspects of the person/player.
