Playing Philosophy and Vision
The activities of the Club staff is driven by the clubs vision and philosophy regarding what type of players they want to develop and what they need to do to achieve that. In terms of some of the most successful clubs in Europe, this is plain to see. If we think about types of players produced by Manchester United, Ajax and Barcelona, we can see they fit a style and a type that commensurate with their playing philosophy. Manchester United and Ajax have always produced wingers who can dribble past defenders, where as we see more multi-functional midfield players at Barcelona to fit their short passing game. All these clubs have a possession based philosophy encouraging their players to take responsibility with and without the ball, and this will always be reflected in the Parkland Soccer Club training and match-day practices.
