For over 20 years other coaches have claimed to teach their players the Legends moves.
When I hear this I rejoice, only to see that all of their players don't use moves in games.
Now, when people tell me their team focuses on deceptive dribbling, I defer judgment until I have seen the team play in a competitive game.
I have yet to see a non Legends team where all players
can do the most difficult deceptive dribbling moves under pressure in games.
Am I right to be sceptical when I hear about non Legends coaches who teach moves and finishing the way we do? I think so!
There will always be other clubs who claim to teach what we teach. To do otherwise is to concede the purist developmental position.
As yet no other club has come close to teaching the moves correctly and getting all their players
to use them under game pressure.
I occasionally see one or two individuals on other teams who can do some of the moves under pressure. However, in the 25 plus years I have watched thousands of youth teams, I have never seen another team with a complete roster of players who can do what Legends teams can do with the ball.
I'm hoping and willing to be surprised.
Where and when can I see this occurring for the first time?
