ABOUT THE VTON CURRICULUM
VTON is an off & online tool for all level of coaches. It contains training plans, training sessions and exercises for every age group, based on objectives per age-group. It’s very user friendly and available on every device.
In addition, VTON organizes meetings for the DOC and TD, in order to ensure the continuous development of the curriculum and platform. We learn from the feedback they give us and take this into account in the further development of the applications.
Our method not only provides exercise material. VTON has a clear vision, which is translated into the application, which benefits all layers within an association.
With more than 250 clubs ~ 12,000 registered coaches and 500,000 downloads per year, VTON is the home base for youth coaches in the Netherlands.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS FOR THE CLUB?
Based on VTON's development vision, learning pathway and planning are centrally secured within the club/ association. This creates continuity, even when coaches alternate. The method turns a youth department into a youth academy and provides a clear interpretation of the role of the DOC and the Technical Director. They can focus more on coaching and to support coaches. Use of the VTON method contributes to the retention of members and coaches, so that continuity is guaranteed.
In addition to the app for coaches, there is now also an app for the players. They can download this Play app for free. The Play app is not only a way to allow players to play more football at home, but also offers the DOC and the coaches insight into the development of the players, because the coach can keep statistics of all players in the Play app. These statistics help to classify the teams and provide an overview of the development per player per team within the association
FOR AND BY COACHES
The curriculum helps coaches with ready-made age-specific trainingsessions. More than 1000 sessions have been put together with 950 unique exercises. All sessions en drills have been developed from practice; what support do coaches want when they are on the pitch? We work closely with youth coaches from amateur football and coaches who work at a professional level. The VTON curriculum, which is built up from objectives and contains learning objectives per age, is unique in the world.
The curriculum covers all topics: technique, tactics, physical and mental. The components come back in all training sessions from the youngest age groups. With the youngest players, the emphasis is on basic technical skills. In the higher levels and age groups this shifts to physical and mental development. In our vision of development we have been inspired by the different educational visions and top coaches in the Netherlands and abroad.
FROM YOUTH DEPARTMENT TO YOUTH ACADEMY
The curriculum provides a continuous learning process from 5 to 19 years old. Coaches work with annual plans to concrete targets for any age. They coach their players during the season aimed at these goals and objectives. So the players develop and improve step by step to their potential.
Digital & multimedia
VTON is unique in the world with its offline apps. The football method is completely digital with an app for all platforms. Sessions and exercises are supported with videos and animations. Players can watch the skills that need to be learned in the weekly training sessions in the PLAY app. Both apps communicate with each other so all sessions and skills are synchronized. All offline, so internet is not needed on the pitch. The curriculum is constantly evolving. Regular updates ensure that coaches always have the most recent version.
