THE NEED FOR PROGRESSIONS AND CHALLENGES WHEN COACHING SOCCER – PART TWO
Posted by Chris on 20 May, 2011
This is the second part of the topic that I presented at the recent Soccer Coaching in Porto, Portugal. This involves progressions and challenges when coaching players.
In these examples, again taken from www.grassrootscoaching.com, the coach has organised a rotating close range shooting game. The objective is to provide the players with lots of opportunities to have realistic, match like scenarios to practice close range shooting and finishing opportunities.
- Diamonds start - Initially, the players are allowed to practice and develop the pattern of the session. Once they understand the pattern of the practice and have achieved a degree of success, the initial progression and challenge is to make the game a competition to see which pair of strikers can score the most goals in a set period of time.
