It has been designed to cover the primary technical, tactical, physiological and psychological components that are required to become a high-level soccer player. The Clint Greenwood Soccer Academy stands behind their method 100%, and find it very valuable in their overall approach to every topic, that they are teaching and repeated by their staff of quality coaches that have passion towards teaching the beautiful game with every member of the student body, at every camp, clinic, private lesson, specialty camp, or video analysis. Coach Greenwood created a dynamic system for coaches to be able to use a large variety of different exercises that break down each technical and tactical detail that is being taught in each session. The Greenwood Method started off as the style of teaching of the Academy, but with many years of transformation, it became a very unique training style that acts as a very important Soccer teaching tool for CGSA full-time, and part-time coaches when they are carrying out a lesson plan for one of the CGSA many different programs.
The program's main goal is to fill each student with innovative education of Football through creative drills, and fun activities that stimulate their minds. "Everything Begins with a Thought" CGSA has transformed the way they think! "The Thoughts That You Take Determines the Actions That you MAKE". The Academy's foundation is based on the teaching of soccer skills of the world class players, and their thought process. The CGSA philosophy doesn't just focus on their physical attributes. CGSA believes in "It's not what you do, but "Why you Do It" not just their physical talents.
WHAT IS DIFFERENT ABOUT THE GREENWOOD METHOD?
The Clint Greenwood Soccer Academy is rare in that it customizes every workout based on the talent and the ability of the group, team, and individual ability of each. The Method is created from CGSAs original philosophy of the 6 levels of technical components of a professional soccer player. The individual  ball familiarity and individual technical enhancement ,  passing and receiving,  speed, quickness, reaction time, and overall athleticism,  tactical awareness and Soccer IQ,  imagination in the game, and the building of a professional soccer  player's mentality. The Greenwood Method and the mind behind it explains some of the ways and ideas that describe the Clint Greenwood Soccer Academy and its professional focus on developing elite skillful, tactical, physical, and mentally sharp footballers. These are the attributes that serve as the D.N.A. of the Best Footballers in The World, and provide CGSA with a blueprint for their overall player development program and outline the method in which the Academy teaches it. The authenticity of the Greenwood Method is a rare thing in Soccer. With the drop off of programs across the world not establishing a technical system that is unique to others, serves CGSA well which makes their business a popular choice to the developing players that wish to play at their highest ability. The main concern for CGSA is to offer great technical training, and physical preparation so that each one of their students can adapt to different styles of play.
In terms of specific style and identification, the Clint Greenwood Soccer Academy is second to none in this discipline. "As CGSA's DNA it is based on the premise of an athletic competition with knowledge taking a bigger part in the outcome, rather than talent takes a bigger role in the success. The amount of how much a current club coach puts into each player's overall development, makes a huge impact on player development, and proven with success during games. The Clint Greenwood Soccer Academy has built their entire identity solely on the Authenticity of their intentions. CGSA technical training, and their all new rhythmic training, is a great opportunity for the serious Soccer player that one day aspires to capture the knowledge that hasn't been offered in the United States.
"Total Footballing Development"
Director, Greenwood has continued his passionate belief on continuing his pursuit of advancing his philosophy of his belief that Total Football is Best. He first heard of a complete team’s tactical approach when he was just 12 years old, and the former Dutch professional coach Rinus Michels wrote a book on his tactical belief of Total Football, and its effect on World Soccer. Total Football's tactical success depends largely on the adaptability of each footballer within the team, in particular the ability to quickly switch positions depending on the on-field situation. The theory requires players to be comfortable in multiple positions; hence, it places high technical and physical demands on them. This is where Clint's passion for individual skill importance, and attacking with numerical advantage + dribbling to break down defenses began to take light. The Greenwood Method is created to utilize the many different techniques that manipulates the ball in such a way to unbalance the opponents defense, and with a total team approach with all players with the same skills can overtake any organized defense. During the 70's when Rinus introduced this style, the main purpose was to use it to win games but to make sure that the brilliance of their great player like Johan Cruyff who was listed as a center forward, but with Total Football approach, he was more like a quarter back in American football, pulling the strings like a puppet master. The likes of Maradona, Ronaldino, Michel Platini, Pele, Zico, and Zinedine Zidane all were awarded with the change in Football tactics. At Clint Greenwood Soccer Academy, we have instilled into all our student body the importance of technical authority is the difference maker in Football, and nothing can stop a skillful superior player, or team. The Greenwood Method is the foundation of all our training programs, and is looking forward to continuing to lead the way in "Total Footballing Development"
