If you want your child to understand the processes that are required to set goals, gain momentum, or even if you want them to just learn how to create positive feedback loops, on top of teaching them how to deep dive into what truly motivates them, then this is the most important letter you'll read all year!
Let's face it, US Soccer is terrible. Kids are being burnt out from spending every day in the car and at structured practice. Parents like you are spending way too much money for glorified babysitting. All for what? The US Men’s Team didn't even qualify for World Cup!
In the U.S. we have essentially the highest standard of living in the world, but also have essentially zero soccer culture. Sure, we love our USWNT, and every four years we watch the USMNT compete (hopefully), but we certainly aren’t going to spend thousands of dollars on season tickets to our local professional soccer club. We have football, basketball, baseball, and hockey too deeply embedded in our culture for that…
So why should you care?
Unlike Europe, we don’t have an elite soccer development system, but instead have a pay to play system.
This creates a soccer culture focused on short term wins versus long term development of the players.
Winning is important yes, but is it more important than you child getting better at their own game?
We also have a culture of fancy and instant gratification. We pay for private lessons for players who don’t spend hours working on fundamentals on their own. We have slews of kids with $150 boots who cannot trap a ball. We have parents, and therefore we have coaches, who actually believe it matters if their 12 year old wins a soccer game.
This current "pay-to-play" ends up creating mediocre athletes who on top of not having the technical ability to be successful, also do not have the mental toughness to face adversity.
We end up with:
Getting more touches is the least of your worries. What you need is a solution that helps your child develop their persistence, goal setting ability, and tenacity all the while helping them figure out what it truly means to be a leader, understand what truly motivates them, and become a high-achieving and true loving student athlete.
According to a study done by the University of Lincoln, "Youth players at an English Premier League soccer academy who would eventually go onto success showed mental toughness from an early age. This enabled them to deal with criticism, confront challenges after repeated failures, and not be intimidated by others. The study also revealed that discipline off the field, such as sacrificing normal teenage life to ensure the chance of success, also contributed to future triumphs. The researchers found the mentally toughest players were more independent, taking greater personal responsibility for their development. Academy recruits are subject to tough physical training drills, high expectations and sometimes harsh criticism, coaches said." - ScienceDaily.com
My name is Coach JR and I am the founder of Renegade Soccer Training
Over the past 25 years, I have been a coach, teacher, a professor; mentor to thousands of kids, plus I was a 3 sport college athlete back in my day.
It was frustrating to see the amount of players that felt completely overwhelmed by the external pressures put onto them. I felt for the parents who truly wanted to support their child in their journey but jut didn't know how to communicate.
Through my years, I discovered the ONE THING that separated those families who ended up being disgruntled at each other and those that were on the same page and moving forward with momentum.
That ONE Thing is more than just communication, it's communication with intent and it is what I used over the years to teach my athletes how to develop their mental toughness, persistence, grit, and focus.
It is what what I have used to help parents open up a line of communication with their child that is both open, honest, yet impactful.
That ONE THING is what lead me to the creation of the "The Renegade Way."
This program to gives you everything you need to help build a stronger relationship with your child so they can become a better student-athlete.

It helps you understand exactly what your child wants and how you can help them attain it. Not by doing the work for them, but through a supportive and mentoring approach.
"As psychologists debate the roles of genetics, environment, and learned skills in determining mental toughness, they do agree (along with athletes and coaches) that high levels of mental toughness are associated with athletic prowess and success. In fact, mental toughness (or “grit”) may be the defining factor between finishing at the front of the pack and not finishing at all."
