Tips for playing football in the rain - in today's video JayMike takes a look at some decent tips for if you're playing football in the rain. A lot of football players would say that playing football in the rain is the best weather to play and there's no doubt that it's a different experience compared to playing in dry weather conditions. In today's video you'll hear more about how you can think about your playing style on the football pitch to adjust for the fact that it's wet and slippery out there - and also, JayMike will take a look at how you can get the right football gear to play in the rain. That includes getting a pair of SG football boots - or even going with the boss version, the Nike Anti-Clog technology that prevents mud from sticking to your football boots. As football pitches are often wet, soft and muddy in the rain, you need some extra traction, and football boots with SG studs can give you that as the SG boots feature longer and fewer studs, giving you a better and firmer grip and traction in the ground despite it being soft and muddy. So get yourself some good football boots with SG studs, get some proper shin pads to protect yourself and remember to dry your football boots properly when you're done playing in the rain to make sure they don't fall apart early.

Process Football Community held its 4th annual MLK pre-season clinic last week. If there was one word to describe it would of been, amazing! We were joined by a fantastic group of quality players, speed and agility coaches, college players, ex-collegiate players, ex-pro players, ex-national team players, and celebrity Tik Tokers to enhance the experience.

We started with a dynamic warm up, injury prevention and speed session by the Athletic Republic followed by both outdoor and indoor training with a combination of football, futsal and football tennis training. And of course we then did "Renegade!"

Dear Parents, If your elite soccer player has a dream of playing in a high level, you can help the most by fostering these mental qualities in your children and reinforcing them every day. The greatest gift parents can give their children in sports is the gift of mentality.
Lesson #1: Be Coachable
First and foremost, teach your child to be coachable. Being coachable means that your child has respect for his or her coach and listens to what is being taught. Being coachable means that your child trusts the process, listens to what he or she is told and executes it without complaint. Your child may not master the skill but he or she has mastered the work ethic necessary to master that skill. As parents, we struggle to trust the process as much as our children struggle to trust it. But keep in mind that trust in the process is most important when your faith in the process is most difficult.
Lesson #2: Be comfortable with being uncomfortable
Second, teach your child to reach out of his or her comfort zone by having difficult conversations with the coach.
Children should be the ones to have conversations with their coaches about playing time or skill progression. Children need to learn how to talk with the adult in a respectful way, yet advocate for themselves. When your elite soccer player reaches higher levels at an older age, coaches will not (nor should they) have a conversation with parents about playing time. Your children need preparation and practice in how to advocate for themselves in their professional careers. Elite soccer provides you the opportunity as a parent to teach your child a life lesson on communicating with authority and advocacy.
Lesson #3: Be an excellent teammate and leader
Third, teach your child the characteristics of how to be an excellent teammate and leader. These go hand in hand. Teach your child SELFLESSNESS by emphasizing good body language if a teammate makes a mistake. Teach your child ACCOUNTABILITY by not placing blame toward others. Teach your child a STRONG WILL and stronger COMMUNICATION SKILLS by not avoiding difficult conversations.
There is no “I” in team!
Lesson #4: Be mentally tough
Fourth, teach your children mental toughness and resilience. One day in their lives they may not start, or maybe they don’t even play at all. Elite athletes survive disappointments because they are mentally prepared for whatever happens to them. They have dealt with adversity, disappointment, and failure and learned how to grow from those experiences.
Lesson #5: Postive Attitude
Last but not least, remind your children they can achieve anything IF they put in the work CONSISTENTLY. When the going gets tough, the tough keep going! Trust your process.

“This is the tragedy of modernity: as with neurotically overprotective parents, those trying to help are often hurting us the most” – Nassim Nicholas Taleb
As history has proven, the most elite and successful soccer players were the ones that grew up in the most uncomfortable ways. Ronaldo was poor with an alcoholic father. Messi left his home and family at the age of 13 to take a chance with Barcelona. Zlatan grew up on the streets of the immigrant-populated district of Rosengard. A single mother raised Marta - she worked all day to support 4 children. And on top of that, it was frowned upon for females to play soccer in Brazil at that time. Lucy Bronze grew up playing on boy’s teams because there were no local girls teams. Farah Williams was homeless for 7 years. Ashlyn Harris grew up in a family that struggled with drug and alcohol abuse…the list goes on and on.
In present day, especially in America, parents are extremely involved in the development of their child as a soccer player. In a lot of ways this is great! So many young athletes/soccer players have the love and support of their parents and families giving them so much more confidence and, a lot of times, more opportunities and resources to become better players/athletes. However, when this love and support gets detrimental is when players become “protected” by their parents from certain things that I believe not just every player, but every human being, should go through – pain, defeat, embarrassment, exclusion, and even injury. Why, you ask? Because this is what challenges players. This is what puts them in uncomfortable situations and being uncomfortable is what helps us as humans and athletes GROW.
This year, I officially made the switch from player to coach and it has been an eye-opening year. Sadly, more often than not, I have had to deal with the parents more than their players. Whether it be due to them feeling their child is not playing enough, being singled out, their concern of me encouraging for their players to play against older players that may injure them, etc… But here is the reality – if we want our players to succeed, if we want them to become mentally and physically stronger and technically more equipped – we must let them go through the moments that some parents may consider “unfair” or “situations where they might get injured.” These players need to learn how to pick themselves back up, how to keep their heads up and stay positive, and it is much more difficult to do this when there is a safety net for them to fall into every time that they don’t get their way or they feel mistreated.
I grew up with extremely supportive parents. However, one thing they never did was get involved with the coach of any of the teams I was on. Furthermore, my dad would take me with him to play in his adult pick up games where I would have to fend for myself and figure out a way to play without getting pushed off the ball or hit in the ankles – this is where I learned the value of being extremely technical. Growing up and even in my professional career, I have been benched, yelled at on multiple occasions, lied to, and excluded quite a few times. I tore my ACL at 17, had a bad groin and ankle injury in college, torn my meniscus at 27, cried many times, and lost my self-confidence during many moments throughout my playing career. I went through times where I thought I hated the game, where I thought, “this isn’t for me.” BUT, eventually, I always picked myself back up, dusted myself off, and pushed forward.
Looking back, I don’t regret a thing. It made me the player and human being that I am today and if I did not learn those lessons on my own – I would eventually have to learn them later in life. Life isn’t fair and you don’t always get what you deserve and work so hard for. But you can’t control that – what you can control is your attitude and perseverance. So my question to all the parents is this: how do we teach our players this mentality if we don’t allow them to face on their own even the smallest obstacles such as not enough playing time or not getting invited to a specific team/training?
As the weather is getting cold, you need to have the right football gear to stay warm and comfortable to perform. It’s never comfortable to train in freezing temperatures at night under the lights, so today we will teach you 5 tips for playing Football during the winter. No excuses if you plan ahead!

Steadman Scott has run Afewee, a grassroots football club in Brixton, south London, for over a decade. His training style is unorthodox but it produces results: the kids respect him and their parents trust the process. Not every child will be good enough to make it to the top, but it is about more than football. He offers the local kids an opportunity to improve their lives through discipline, passion, hard work and confidence.
Afewee has given careers to over 40 notable players including England and Liverpool defender Nathaniel Clyne, Millwall and England women’s striker Rinsola Babajide, and England Under-17 and Manchester United winger Joshua Bohu. But the road to the top is tough, and even for those that sign for a big club, a secure future is not guaranteed.
This documentary short by Ray McFarlane and Patrick Steel is an access-all-areas look at the football club, Steadman’s philosophy, and the impact of the training regime on the kids and their families.
