Observations from an Elite Coach - Jerry Smith

Jerry Smith, Head Coach of the Santa Clara University Women’s team, is widely recognized as one of the elite college coaches in America. He is directly responsible for developing several elite professional players and US National Team players.

Jerry has also had extensive experience in coach club soccer and was pleased to share his insights on player development, club soccer, parental involvement and developing traits for young players.

On Player Development…. Coach Smith emphasized the importance of developing a sound technical base with both feet, motivating young players to above all understand that the development process is a lengthy one. He shared the 10,000 hour commitment plan for players that want to play at the highest level and the importance of working with qualified coaches.

On Parental Involvement…. Coach Smith strongly encouraged parents to support their children by providing the best possible learning environment and resist the temptation of short term results versus long term development. Club jumping to attain results or playing levels were deemed very detrimental to the overall development of the player. Parents can play a vital role in their children’s development by encouraging goal setting, helping their children develop a passion to play, supporting creativity, and by visualizing the game by watching collegiate and professional teams in person and on television.

On Developing Traits…. Coach Smith characterized what high level coaches look for when identifying and recruiting players. The ideal players are technically proficient, tactically knowledgeable, physically fit, creative, self-motivated, students of the game, respectful of the game and all those involved, open minded and positive role models.

Our thanks to Jerry Smith for sharing his vast experience with our membership. We look forward to visiting Santa Clara in the Fall to observe and enjoy high level collegiate soccer!
