A key philosophy of the FC Wisconsin training and developmental philosophy is to push players to train on the edge of their abilities. We expect players to “become comfortable being uncomfortable.” This means we design training activities that stretch the players, are difficult, create mistakes, and demand concentration. Within these activities, we expect the players to do things faster and cleaner on a regular basis, and to continually raise their own expectations of quality and performance. We point out (in intricate detail) what went well and worked (individually and collectively) – but also what did not and how it needs to be changed.
FC Wisconsin players learn to be comfortable being uncomfortable, and learn the feeling of skill mastery. This focus brings more individual opportunity, and more team success, over the long-term than any other philosophy.
