"If you believe that growth comes from risk taking, that you cannot grow without it, then in leading kids towards growth it is essential to get them to take intelligent risks and make mistakes. Errors are good. No errors, no progress. The successful player will profit from her errors and try again in a different way. No soccer player performs the right move, or hits the target, every time. That’s why players should be rewarded when their experiments fail. If a player is trying to learn something new she should get credit for it. A player who isn’t encouraged to make errors may learn nothing. Making errors is a good thing. Great players take responsibility for them, keep trying to fix them, conquer the challenge, and move on to the next one. In youth soccer an intelligent error is not a error, it is an opportunity for education. The key to great coaching is teaching this to your players so that they can benefit maximally from every attempt that fails. A soccer career spent making errors is more developmental and valuable than one playing safe. While one player may hesitate because he feels inferior, another will be busy making errors and becoming ever more superior. Many coaches would argue that they do not have the time to encourage errors. We would argue that you do not, not have the time."
