Being a good team player is one thing, but being a great soccer team captain is another. Very few players will have this golden opportunity in taking up such an important leadership role. However, if you are fortunate to take up the role of a team captain, then you will need to be a good leader for your teammates; this is both during soccer training and off the field.
There are different types of leaders present. However, the best are those that lead by example; they communicate well and when such a leader gives you a compliment you feel stronger and taller. If this is the kind of leader you are hoping to be, then read on to find out how to train and develop yourself to be a great soccer captain.
1. Lead by example
Leading by example is a key point in developing yourself for the leadership role. If your teammates see that you are positive and always working hard, they will follow suit and look up to you for the proper guidance. Some of the ways you can show your efforts to your teammates is; do not jog at a time you are meant to be running and try not giving up along the way. If you slack off, or you give less effort in the game it is a sign that they also do not need to try as hard.
