What is TalentTool?

Recognise and develop soccer talent

Coaching soccer players to reach the highest achievable level for them starts with selection and training. But a striker is not a midfielder. And a midfielder is not a goalkeeper. Not every soccer player has the same personality, either. One might be introverted and the other extroverted. So not everyone benefits from the same guidance.
 

Personal guidance, awareness and independence

The TalentTool focuses on the individual. It was developed by a team of professionals with years of experience in professional sports. We are continuously developing ways to innovatively train young and talented athletes - all the focus is aimed at the talents. Personal guidance, awareness and independence are the key words.
 

Personal guidance

By entering personal information and data from, among others, the technical, tactical and physical tests, a player's skill profile can be determined. After that, the social, personal and mental behavior is analysed to determine which type of talent the player is. The player, the trainer/coach and the club will get an objective image of the skills and personality of the player based on clear numerical schemes. You gain insight into who the talent is and what motivates him. After that the TalentTool helps to optimally develop the talent to the desired level.

Log in and get started

The TalentTool is an interactive program and can therefore be used wherever there is access to the internet. Players, trainers/coaches and club management will always have access to the system and can follow all developments closely. A player can log in to his profile - the cockpit - and continuously keep track of his progress. Trainer/coaches can also keep track of the player's developments. They can see what kind of personal guidance every player needs. With the help of exercise material of the trainer and the library, the player can improve himself, if needed, on a technical and personal level. The TalentTool offers a number of tools for this, such as: training exercises, written training materials and videos. An improvement plan can then be put together. The player is responsible for his own development. The player will be able to notice what the result is of his own activities. If he follows the advice and trains a lot, this provides visible results. That way the player can see his progress, and therefore he will become more confident.

 

  • Create profiles with information on players, teams and coaches. The talent can view his information in his personal cockpit. The profile identifies what the initial situation of a player was and how his progress is coming along on a technical, tactical, physical, personal, mental and social level. The player will be able to see exactly what he got better at and what helped him achieve that. This creates the awareness that he himself is responsible for his development.


  • Is the player introverted or extroverted? Is he mainly focussed on relationships or on tasks? With the test to determine the player type, you can find out what a player's place within the motivation circle is and what motivates him. This informs the trainer/coach of what he should do, shouldn't do and how the talent can be developed. He'll know whether or not to ask the player for his opinion, for example. Or if he should not use too many repetitions, causing a player to get bored. And whether he should pay attention to the development of, for example, mature and professional behaviour. The motivation of a player is ultimately what helps the player in his development.


  • Easily create tests, focusing on specific players. Measure sociability, personality, mentality, technique, tactical insight and physique. The results of the tests are processed in the cockpit of the talent. When the information in the cockpit is 100% complete, the player will reach the absolute top.


  • Trainers/coaches and players can find all relevant trainings, courses, videos and tests in the library. The player's trainer/coach can offer the talent tools to help him personally develop his skills further. The player is responsible to follow up on the advice and to grow as a soccer player. Because the player can see what the results are when the advice is followed, he'll realise that he's responsible for his own progress.

  • On the basis of the test results and the player type, the individual improvement plan is set up. The player will receive advice from the trainer/coach. The library contains all relevant tools for this matter, such as texts, videos and/or commentary from a training assistant. The talent will only get input that contributes to increasing his confidence. When given the right information and motivation, he will take more action.
