DEVELOPING THE COACH…
- Tactical Video, we will provide tactical drills on video for you the coach to incorporate into part of your session. These video drills are essential in challenging the players to master and to use in the game.
- Training Sessions, we will also provide specific training drills based on the ability of your players, the print-out sessions will be available to download each week to compliment the Tactical Session and complete your weekly training session.
We believe that by developing the Coaches skills, the players will become more confident on the pitch. Coaches knowledge and understanding developed and focused on what they are trying to achieve. Combining a skill set and knowledge that will effect the game… rather than developing the skills that impress off it.
