It has become one of the hottest topics in coaching today. Skill, speed, and power are no longer enough for success if they are not used effectively. Spanish playmaker Andres Iniesta recently said, “Speed of thought and speed of the decision making separates the best players in the world from the rest.” Watch a Champions League game and you will see what he is talking about. Only this week we saw Arsenal make the wrong choices in key stages of the game against Monaco, and even coach Arsene Wenger was forced to admit that “the heart took over the head.” Intelligence is now a key part of the game and will continue to be as the demands on players grow alongside the resources they are becoming exposed to. The rewards today are higher than ever and the margin for error is becoming smaller. As a result, the challenges for coaches are simple: Firstly, we must understand every aspect of decision making and secondly, we must be able to both coach it and influence our players’ lives in the right way.

The United States Soccer Federation ran one of its Licensing Courses in Casa Grande, Arizona January 10-19. The course included candidates attending to see if they could qualify for one of the National Licenses (A, B, or C) during the time period. Coaches from all over the United States and the World are typically in attendance for these National Courses. The courses are evaluated by US Soccer National Staff Coaches during the week. Some of the areas evaluated include the ability to run field sessions, designing written lesson plans and written match evaluation.
