Any subscriber listener to the SFAs usually terrible Scottish Football Coaching Podcast a couple of months ago could tell you. The guest was the youth football supremo in Belgium. What he initiated was paid coaches working with teams where fun not winning was the main focus until age 14. Training featured a lot of short sided games, 2 vs 2s and emphasising ball skills over tactics or team shape. No tactics until much older. In games if you make a mistake while dribbling that results in a goal, no problem, keep dribbling. Be greedy. As long as you're improving as a group of individials, it doesn't matter if you win.
The parallels with the Scottish kids game couldn't be greater. Despite the SFA coaching courses trying their best to promote this kind of progressive thinking, the culture is still win at all costs, lowest common denominator pump the ball long no mistakes, and if you have the choice of improve your existing flawed player or recruit in another one from a less 'prestigious' boys club, choose the latter because its quicker and less hassle.
