Better than Best Practice

THE Best Practice Development begins with building the Environment--EVERYDAY. that's what we do at JOTP.

What if they only thing that matter was the development of the child? The development of the player? At Joy of the People we have been doing just that.  Seeking out, studying and implementing best practice of development unmatched anywhere. Kids at Joy of the People interact at a skill level unmatched because the environment is unmatched.  Our development system is the future of Player development.  We have received national attention from leading publications, US Soccer and even internationally.  But most of all JOTP is proud to have a positive affect on each and every child who comes through our door.

​If you are interested in this one any of our programs.come to the Open House, stop by and talk to us, view our system of development and see if this may be the place for your son or daughter.

RICE AND BEANS PRINCIPLES

 

1-PERSON FIRST

The first principle is that the person comes first.   Development and growth takes humility, empathy, and understanding.  Our rice and beans kids focus on problem solving, collaboration and communication.

2-PLAYER CENTERED

One of the main principles is that the main actor is the player; not the coach, not the team. Every person/player is different and players are encouraged to build their strengths. 

3-ACQUISITION, THEN LEARNING 

Kids want to play for a reason--they learn better and faster when they are having fun-Science has shown that only through the input of ideas, problems and solutions are stored in the unconscious brain, making players who play for fun Unconsciously competent.  This is ACQUISITION and is vital for long term enjoyment of play.  Learning period (Rules, laws, skills, techniques) comes later and is important after kids reach peak height velociity.  

This unique and groundbreaking curriculum is what makes the child's experience at JOTP special.

4-PLAYER FREEDOM

If you want creative players, you must create an environment of freedom. Create the environment, free them and help only if it's necessary. Let the kids discover – they are more intelligent than you think they are.

5-DIFFERENTIAL TRAINING

Change the ball, change the surface.  Players never repeat, every problem is new.  Adaptation is the result as kids fall in love with the process.

6-UNCONSCIOUS INPUT 

The Art of learning without trying.  Allowing the good things in and filtering out what's not important.  The secret to expertise.

7-FUTSAL 

Futsal, Mini Futsal, Brazilian Futsal, Play and  informal and formal competitions (Such as US YOUTH FUTSAL) are a big part of our learning process.  Kids learn that futsal is a learning methodology--not an end in itself as a perfect way to understand soccer through first understanding small sided play.

8-PLAYER LOAD

Challenge, Ability, Overload and Under load . The art of fast as possible along with the much less understood (and more important) easy as possible.  The ability to create more and better learning experiences through overload and under load.

9-LONG TERM DEVELOPMENT

Evidence-based program.  Understanding the developmental needs of the child and the science behind long term developmentMore on LTPD

You can count on us

RICE AND BEANS 2019

As many as possible, as long as possible, in the best environment possible

We will always be here to present best practice youth development--Try Rice and Beans with JOTP and have a blast


They are all wondering how to make the next great team. Teams will break up, new teams formed, lot's of kids and families in search of the best fit for their child. 

You have 2 choices:

  1. JOTP
  2. Everyone else.

JOTP
JOTP was formed precisely because we saw these issues early.  We saw how teams, competition and leagues invaded and inhibited player development--so we set out to build the model from the ground up.

PERSON FIRST
At JOTP there is NEVER a tryout. What month you are born in or how big or fast has nothing to do with Rice and Beans.  There is little emphasis on teams--instead it's about personal development and  community.  Person, Player Team. Our philosophy and curriculum

  • Rice and Beans is a year around program for Girls and Boys ages 9  to 14.
  • JOTP JRS is a high level Program for kids 15-18 .

USA CUP Prep

USA Cup is our season ending event for Rice and Beans.  Though the summer goes on with camps in August, Rice and Beans special events conclude in July.  

We want to make it an amazing fun and enjoyable event.  Of course preperation is important, but done in the correct way.  We have set up a number of training sessions at East Phillips Park in Mpls (and JOTP on saturdays) to go over JOTP principles of play, and phases of the game.  This is meant as a learning experience and will be fun with lots of play.  

Parents should drop off kids by 9:15.  Most kids go back to JOTP for lunch after training and stay for free play.  Training ends at 11:15.  THere are rides available.

 

Make what you can.  Look forward to a fun end of the season.

Best Players +Best coaches+Best Competition=Best Development

Method

  • Elite team selection
  • Focused, driven training
  • Elite travel
  • Overload (Play at the highest level possible

Outcomes

  • Early selection
  • Explicit coaching-coach tells kids what to do
  • Extrinsic rewards (team placement, wins/losses)
  • Speed, Power, Oldest players (Relative age effect)
  • Small, younger players let go
  • Overload only
  • External locus of control (Team placement, coach)
  • Play to win
  • Fixed mindset 

What the science is saying

Work, effort, focus, do not improve player--only serveto monitor how the player is doing.

Internal and external focus no as effective as task orientation (Objective vs just play)

Early selection serves to eliminate those chosen early

Exceptional Environment

"We were looking for exceptional kids and what we found were exceptional conditions...opportunity to learn, authentic tasks, and exceptionally supportive social contexts." 

--Benjimen Bloom, on his study of youth development and expertise leading to his book Best Developing Talent in Young People

in 1985, Benjamin Bloom, a professor of education at the University of Chicago, published a landmark book, Developing Talent in Young People, which examined the critical factors that contribute to talent. He took a deep retrospective look at the childhoods of 120 elite performers who had won international competitions or awards in fields ranging from music and the arts to mathematics and neurology. Surprisingly, Bloom’s work found no early indicators that could have predicted the virtuosos’ success. Subsequent research indicating that there is no correlation between IQ and expert performance in fields such as chess, music, sports, and medicine has borne out his findings. The only innate differences that turn out to be significant—and they matter primarily in sports—are height and body size.

So what does correlate with success? One thing emerges very clearly from Bloom’s work: All the superb performers he investigated had practiced intensively, had studied with devoted teachers, and had been supported enthusiastically by their families throughout their developing years. Later research building on Bloom’s pioneering study revealed that the amount and quality of practice were key factors in the level of expertise people achieved. Consistently and overwhelmingly, the evidence showed that experts are always made, not born. These conclusions are based on rigorous research that looked at exceptional performance using scientific methods that are verifiable and reproducible. Most of these studies were compiled in The Cambridge Handbook of Expertise and Expert Performance, published last year by Cambridge University Press and edited by K. Anders Ericsson, one of the authors of this article. The 900-page-plus handbook includes contributions from more than 100 leading scientists who have studied expertise and top performance in a wide variety of domains: surgery, acting, chess, writing, computer programming, ballet, music, aviation, firefighting, and many others.
