The National Standards Project

Today, parents, players, coaches and clubs recognize winning, losing, goals scored, and playing time as the primary metrics to judge success and improvement. These metrics typically reward and encourage physical, direct play, and early childhood maturity to the detriment of ball control and creativity, attributes/skills/abilities that become harder to teach as players grow older. Emphasizing technical improvement as a significant player development metric and comparing players and teams to an objective national standard will help change the focus from winning games in the short-term to developing players for long-term success.
