the Global Team employs a typical soccer model for player development to enhance our players’ ability to use their education and impact their future. Through this model, we employ activities and discussions through which players self-learn by solving the questions presented to them and the problems they identify. Ultimately this model develops each player into a creative leader by empowering them with knowledge, confidence and the ability to realize their dreams.
Self Guided Discovery - Through our mentor training and an activity-based curriculum, Global Team players learn through self-discovery. This process allows our players to not only obtain a foundation in primary education, but gets them thinking on the ‘how’, ‘who’, ‘what’, ‘why’ and ‘when’ of each lesson. This is best seen in soccer through age-appropriate training, where the field activities teach the players about best practices, not the coach.
Problem Solving – Through our activity-based curriculum, Global Team players develop problem solving techniques. This empowers them to think outside the box and independently in order to see the impact of their abilities. This is best seen in soccer through age-appropriate training, where players are made to find the solution on their own.
Creative Leaders – By empowering our players to learn in supportive, creative environments we begin the process of out-of-the-box thinking. This is further developed by activities and discussions, finalized in a concluding semester community-based project.
