Soccer in international schools looks very different from soccer played in academies, clubs, or any organized institution outside the school program. The main reason why it is so different is because students are frequently moving from country to country or school to school, and so lack consistent training and correct progressions, which translates into accumulated gaps in their learning over a period of time. Academic pressure in some geographical areas also hinders the appropriate development of every student in the area of sports, and it can impact students’ active lifestyle in both the short term and longer term. The truth is that coaches and teachers can make all the difference in this fluid situation.
