Take a moment to think about the foot you hardly ever use when you play football/soccer. You know the one we mean; the one that feels left out, unnoticed and undervalued as your self confident, stronger foot passes, traps, shoots and scores its way to glory.
Well, now your OTHER foot is being given an opportunity to take a step in the right or left direction, to at last show that it's just not for standing on.
Just imagine if your OTHER foot had the opportunities your stronger one has had. Would you be a more versatile player? Let's just say your OTHER foot improved by 10%. Would you be a better player? What if your OTHER foot improved on its present performance by 20%? Would you be a better player?
What if that neglected OTHER foot improved by 30%, 50%, 70% or more. Would you be an improved, more versatile player, able to contribute more effectively to overall team performance? Of course the answer to all these questions is YES.
Now, for the first time ever, coaching classes are available that work specifically to improve the performance of your OTHER foot.
Now the boot's on the OTHER foot!

THE OTHER FOOT IN ITALY
I discovered The Other Foot Soccer School a few years ago, by chance, surfing the web for my profession (sport journalist). I was immediately intrigued, so I contacted Ian McArthur, its creator, to learn more. And I ended up in a very interesting experience, which is enriching me in the cultural and football side. You immediately notice that the method has been studied for a long time, with great passion and dedication from Ian. The simple things are sometimes the most creative. If you learn to play with both feet, instead of just one, you exponentially multiply your skills, your potential. You can confuse your opponent. This is why regular, structured training from 7 years of age, can bring incredible benefits to young players. Do not just stop somewhere, occasionally, during reqular training sessions to work on the "weak” feet, it is a work in progress. The stimuli studied by Ian to help children focus are really great: colorful socks that change colour as the belt in karate highlighting the improvements made after passing the appropriate “socka” skill levels, the background music, the competition ...
With the team of my city, I work for the Aurora Desio 1922, we decided to acquire the license, convinced of the goodness of the project. We are the first T.O.F school in Italy. And the first results are very positive: the coaches of our academy are very interested and are studying the material received (CD and manual); internships carried out have observed the enthusiasm and involvement of young players (wonderful atmosphere, a mix of concentration and fun). There has also been great attention and curiosity on the part of some of my friends who work for professional clubs such as SS Lazio and AC Monza. Among other things, we gave the kids a customer satisfaction questionnaire, which has been very significant (the results are written below).
Not only that: the media have shown interest, devoting extensive services of newspaper and TV. Curiosity: after the first training session with the method T.O.F, our 11 year old boy, the next game, he scored with weak feet! ... Did not happen for a lifetime!

Aurora Desio 1922
We are the historical club of Desio, one of the most prestigious in Brianza, which in 2012, crosses the finish line of the 90 years of life. A long journey during which Aurora gave vent to his passion for football of thousands of children and young the city, training them not only dribbling and goals but also to respect the values human. Why arancioblù philosophy is very clear from always and never goes "Offside": there is no better victory to grow healthy young and educated, ready to become "men."

Ex –Scotland Internationalist Brian Irvine
"Although ‘The Other Foot’ is a novel concept using the Karate type colour incentive on socks rather than on belts, it is a most logical and practical initiative.
It can be argued that one footed players are only 50% efficient so this attempt to provide appropriate and graded sessions is to be commended. Young players who are privileged to be coached in this way find it most enjoyable and extremely beneficial. Very Impressive!"
(Manager of S.P.L club Motherwell F.C)
