This week The Coaching Journey Podcast is excited to welcome Jon Townsend on the show! Jon is a former collegiate player and current coach, as well as writer for These Football Times. He has seen his work published in additional publications such as the NSCAA Soccer Journal and The Guardian, in which his famous "10,000 touches" article created an avalanche of discussion! Jon is also the co-founder of TotaalvoetbalConcepts, a training company consisting of various programs aimed at producing technically superior, tactically adept, dynamic footballers.
Our discussion today revolves around the youth development process both in the U.S. and abroad and we ask the question as to whether or not we are maximizing our development of elite soccer players.
