The Dutch way

• Individual development and team development

• Youth development is a joined responsibility of the Association and the Clubs

• The best players play with the best against the best

• Talented players have about 4-6 training sessions and 1 or 2 competitive games per week.

• Well educated and football experienced coaches for talented players. 1.
