Assess-Learn-Practice-Play is WABA's 4-Phase player development process that facilitates hyper-accelerated soccer mastery. This is achieved by using a 1:1 Development Curriculum created around an Annual Development Plan on an individual basis with a WABA mentor/coach.

 

The first trial day samples WABA's assess phase, followed by a learn module, and then a play module of similar skill set as this reinforces the learning with a small sided game experience. Players become comfortable and confident with the new technique by experimenting outside their comfort zone, learning from mistakes, and using creativity  in WABA games.
