Incompetent Coaches #LTAD


We have just read another great #LTAD post via Steen Houman in Denmark.

He say in Danish: "Så jo, Sverige har en række inkompetente klubtrænere, der tænker mere på at vinde end på at udvikle."

With a free translation it means "Sure, Sweden has a bunch of incompetent coaches at the club level that care more about winning than development"

In essence Mr. Houmans post investigates Youth Floorball in Sweden and finds that 50% of U19 players are sourced from the first three months of the year for the national team. The conclusion is that the coaches constantly makes the same mistake as in all other older sports too. They source the majority of all players from the first months, ie they prefer older players..
The crazy thing doing like this is obvious, you deny a large chunk of many good players and they are kicked out from the system even before they have started to develop up to their own full swing.

We here see it like age discrimination, on a monthly basis...

So what is done - and how things work - we do not have the best teams, we do not have the best players and not even the best games - in no sports - because many of the players that could have developed incredible skills - are sorted out way too early..

Mr. Houman therefore make the conclusion that the Swedish team, is not just the world dominant Floorball team by far - so far. He also indicates that in #LTAD theory at least... well Sweden might become even better, and we here think by far.
Yes, his post also informs about the Swedish #LTAD program introduced into Swedish Floorball and how this might develop Floorball even further.

Are you ready to brush up your Danish?

Caution

Research suggest that eye-injuries are more common in Floorball as compared to Tennis, but less common as compared to Squash (similar to Racquetball).
To minimize this risk of injury Floorballcentral recommend: Use certified protective eye-wear (mandated in many European areas for the youth). Do not lay down on the court. Follow the rules strict on stick height.

Also if you get addicted to this sport - do not blame us!
