Alex Morgan. Landon Donovan, Christen Press. Rachel Daly. Stephen Ireland. Kelley O'Hara.
These are all players who have played at the highest level, some even winning a World Cup. These are also just a few of the professional players who have worked with a man whose name you might know, but whose company you will definitely know.
This week, The Coaching Journey Podcast is excited to welcome David Copeland-Smith on the show, and most of you will know him as Beast Mode Soccer! Beast Mode Soccer has become synonymous with top-class individual development. While many may know David for his work with players at the top of their game, his most important work may be the individual training he does with college, high-school, and youth players, working towards creating technically proficient players who can excel to the best of their ability.
Our discussion revolves around David's journey with Beast Mode Soccer, as well as the training methodology he employs and the reason why the likes of Alex Morgan or Rachel Daly are playing at the highest levels. We talk about individual technical development and discuss the often heated debate between opposed and unopposed technical development, and it's a discussion you don't want to miss.
