Dehradun Football Academy covers 7 of the most important aspects of player development

1. Technique

In football, technique is considered the tool of the trade. The better the techniques, the wider the range of techniques, the more complete and competent a soccer player is. There is no alternative for good technique.

2. Understanding

Understanding means competence, it means coming to terms what you can do and what you cannot do. A player who attempts something which they know they cannot do, is unskilled.

3. Fitness

Fitness is an important aspect because fatigue causes technique to deteriorate. Since it has already been established that technique is the best asset of any football player, it is necessary to build a foundation with fitness and conditioning that is capable of lasting the entire 90 minutes of a game.

4. Mental concentration

Without concentration and thought about what one is doing during the game, the player's participation is reduced to lottery. It is important for the player to combine his mental concentration with the applications of his skills, such as dribbling, ball control and shooting.

5. Perception

Players must learn to play with their heads up, constantly surveying changing positions of the ball and his own team-mates as well as the opposition.

6. Decisions

Mental concentration, understanding and knowledge are essential attributes to correct decision-making. It is highly important to sift the essential from the non-essential and adjust priorities accordingly. Soccer is a game of decisions and is often decided by the decisions individual players make.

7. Action

This is the final part of the process, application of the decision. Action must be one of commitment, it is important to not waver when committing to a decision.
