Horst Wein’s visit to Ireland in 2011

Nov 20, 13 Horst Wein’s visit to Ireland in 2011

This is an event I organised with Dermot Dalton from thebeautifulgame.ie in 2011.This was Horst Wein first visit to Dublin. I had met Horst a few months previous in Barcelona.

In the 5 minute video, he discusses the changes we need to make to improve kids football in Ireland. I think we have come along way since this was video made. Horst highlights so much and certainly gives us a lot to think about.

“In Ireland the kids are not allowed to discover the game and the beauty of the game of football. Why, they are exposed to competition which is by far to difficult and to complex for them. Competition for kids, should fit them like their shoes. Over here, at the moment our kids are playing with shoes that are by far to big and don’t suit them perfectly.” Horst Wein

This workshop was well attended, including most the FAI Coaching Department and other well established coaches. Although we have seen some progression, we still have such a long way to go. If you want to find out more about Horst Wein’s 3v3, go straight thebeautifulgame.ie
