Reflection

Today we worked on a shooting session, It was a basic session where the player who starts with the ball gets a 1-2 from the player on the cone. He then repeats the process with the player on the second cone and then has a first time shot. Moving to the opposed drill where there is a defender to beat before you take your shot.

How was i feeling ?

Before the session i felt a little nervous as this is a new group. I felt however that the players would be able to do the session with no problems.

What was good and bad about the experience ?

I think the good aspects of the session where that the session was planned and thought out. However the bad elements of the session where that there was only me and another coach to handle the group. This was due to people not communicating and a mix up with who should be there

Action Plan

If i was to do this session again i would do it somewere with more space so i could have two groups going at once. I would also make sure i had adequate help to run the session. I would incorperate challenges between the teams to encourage competition. This could be is to put bibs in the top corners with 2 points given for hitting them in a allotted time. I would also try to do the session with more advanced players.
