THE NEED FOR PROGRESSIONS AND CHALLENGES WHEN COACHING FOOTBALL – PART TWO
This is the second part of the topic that I presented at the recent Football Coaching in Porto, Portugal. This involves progressions and challenges when coaching players.
In these examples, again taken from legacy.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.
