Trust the Process is the most commonly used phrase in all of sports.


While at times inspirational – it’s only successful if the process actually works and the players stick with it. 


Many players, coaches, and parents have joined Anytime Soccer Training. Therefore, I thought it appropriate to share part of our process and why it’s so successful.


By way of introduction, I am Neil Crawford the founder of Anytime Soccer Training and also a crazy soccer dad.


You can find my rants and insightful interviews via our podcast, The Inside Scoop, and the Anytime Soccer Training  Facebook group.


Our process is based on the belief that,


Technical players are more confident, have a greater impact on games, and enjoy soccer more.

That’s why it’s so important that youth players become technically superior as soon as possible.


To become technically superior, we believe that the player must get extra touches at home in addition to team training. However, deliberate practice can be difficult for youth players to stick with long-term.


Also, parents may lack the knowledge or temperament to supplement their child’s training.  Some families may have the budget for a private trainer, but private training is prohibitively expensive for most.


And even the most dedicated trainer just can’t come to your home for a daily 10-minute training session.

That is why we created Anytime Soccer Training.


The Process

Below is a description of why our process is successful and how it removes some of the common barriers to becoming a technical player who truly enjoys the game.


#1 Youth soccer players don’t get enough practice at home

Anytime Soccer Training has over 1,000 easy-to-follow training videos that cover all the major soccer areas.  Players have 24/7 access to the training content on their phones, PCs, and all other devices.  Also, much of the training content requires no equipment and very little space.


Try this selection from the easy-to-follow series First Touch Rebounder to get 500 touches in four minutes.



#2 And when they do, it’s not effective, fun, or engaging

In addition to over 1,000 training sessions, Anytime Soccer Training includes over 101 fun soccer games, skills contests, and a reward system.


Watch this video and try it with your children. I guarantee they will run faster and dribble more while having fun doing it!




#3 Parents want to help, but don’t know where to start…

Anytime Soccer Training removes the guesswork. Each series starts with the basics and slowly becomes more advance. Parents just have to hit play.


Check out the first video in the 1,000 Touch Ball Mastery series. All parents can help their children do this, regardless of their knowledge of the game.



#4 And when they try, it often frustrates the relationship

The Anytime Soccer Training follow-along format allows children to train independently. This removes the bulk of the responsibility from the parent.  Parents just have to hit play.


#5 Coaches want to assign practice homework, give rewards for hard work and better engage families…

Coaches will be able to assign videos and various challenges to their teams.

The mere fact that you made it this far means that you likely share the same belief.


Our goal is to make the process easier for you.


However, we need a commitment from you and your player.

The Results

As a soccer dad, I know first-hand that the Anytime Soccer Training program works.  It works because my two sons (born 2010 and 2013) are able to get thousands of extra touches at home without dad driving them crazy.


The result is confident and skillful young boys who love the game.


I love watching them play!
