Grassroots Coaching

The power of a soccer coach!

It is frightening how much power and influence a soccer coach has with their players. Soccer coaches fulfil a number of important roles, such as:

  • Role models and leaders
  • Teachers
  • Planners
  • A mentor
  • Friend
  • Tactician
  • Manager
  • Planners and organisers


But everything we do, involves communication. How we communicate, both verbally and with our body language is so important with young impressionable players. We have to be so careful about what words we use with our players and the impact these words can have.

As soccer coaches, we aren’t just training our young players bodies, we are accelerating their brains!¬†Watch the video, it is thought provoking.
