Description

In our session we will teach the players received the ball with a leading foot , Mainly focus on teaching players to recognized where the free space and take the positive first touch to attack the space  

As the coach, It is your job to choose from the multiple activities and deliver catering for your groups based on ability levels. Do not try to deliver all activities at once.

EG

Warm Up- Foundational Characters

Main theme-Implement technique (motor skill/move) with stages of pressure

Conditioned game- what game to pick based on the end product & learning outcomes my group can achieve

End game- Identify a moment to teach the restart & bring out the principle of play In every session,

Coaching In the Game (Make two stoppages during the end game to reinforce the learning outcomes below) THIS IS VITAL FOR THE PROGRAM TO PLAYER BE TEACH ON A GAME SCENARIO 

Restart Week 3 Corner Kick

Week 3: Corner kicks Make sure players understand the realistic moments when they have to restart on a Corner kick.

Principle of play - Support probating  Width 

Support – Links to movement but more specifically focuses on how you will support the player on the ball. Support can be provided behind, ahead and beside the player on the ball. In order to provide support effectively, players should look to create space from their movement and look to provide angles and distance to be able to receive the ball.

MVP points System

The player MVP system is a staple of the program and one we use to set competition from the start of the session to the finish between each individual

The way the system works every player has 5 MVP points to start, Players can win more points by applying themselves to each activity with full commitment trying their hardest to progress, and being awarded points by the coach

Players can also win points during each activity by scoring the most points for that activity and for that they will pick up 2 MVP points from the coach.

We also use the point system to reinforce good standards like staying in bounds, not bumping into other players, and good behavior. the player can lose their points when these standards are not met. Try to use it as a motivator, not a punishment.

Once the players get used to this system they will become more responsible for their own development
