Coaching

Coaching Session No.1 - Dribbling

This practice builds on the popular Skills Corridor warm-up by introducing variety and opposition to encourage good decision making. Now players will have to use invention and pace to beat defenders.

Observe how the coach gives every player a specific challenge; engaging players in the activity, ensuring a high energy session and focussing players on realistic outcomes of 1v1 dribbling.

Coaching Session No.2 - Turning

This technical practice is a great warm-up activity that guarantees hundreds of touches.

It is a practice that allows players to be creative and experiment with different turns and imaginative touches whilst preparing them for the session ahead. The video also includes a progression which adds pressure and shifts the developmental focus from technique to skill acquisition.

Coaching Session No.3 - Attacking Overloads

These Small-Sided Games encourage players to develop their individual skills and small combination play. The practices challenge player's decision-making abilities and create scenarios that pose the question of when to pass and when to dribble.

To top it all off, these games ensure your players leave the session happy having scored plenty of goals!

Coaching Session No.4 - Spatial Awareness

This 4v4 skill development game is a beautifully-crafted practice that develops intelligent players with '360 degree vision'.

Observe how the coach is able to demonstrate technical concepts such as movement to create space and passing to the 'safe-side' without having to continuously stop the game.

Coaching Session No.5 - Combination Play

This practice encourages players to use clever combinations to create shooting opportunities.
Because every player is encouraged to score lots of goals throughout, the intensity level is high and it’s a fast-paced and fun game that still develops real game understanding.
