The 5-Minute Football Coach #112
Triangle warmup, Attacking rondo, How to talk to players
I hope you’re all well. Here are your 3 coaching tips for this week:
⚽️ Warmup of the week
A simple warmup, starting without the ball, for agility, speed, control:
Triangle Tig! Begin without a ball to focus on outwitting your opponent with slick decision-making and agility before adding a ball. Adapt the size of the triangle to suit the abilities of the pupils.
🥅 Game of the week
A 6v3 rondo from Atletico Madrid, to try and move defenders in order to ‘hit’ the target player:
Atletico Madrid 6v3 Tactical Rondo 🎯 ✅ Look to circulate possession to move defenders ✅ Objective is to switch through central player ✅ If blues win possession, greens immediately counter-press 📺 Subscribe to more FREE sessions on our YouTube page: youtube.com/user/curneen16
💡 Topic of the week
A nice diagram from the English FA on the different types of coaching intervention. Why not try and combine different approaches indeed?
Love this resource by @FA 1. Command "I want you to.." 2. Q&A "What do you think.." 3. Observe "Let's watch.." 4. Guided Discovery "Show me how to.." 5. Trial & Error "try to.." Try & find a good mix; you'll always favour some over others I feel. For me I think its 1,2 & 5
I hope you enjoyed this. Until next time!
