The 5-Minute Football Coach #18
2v2 games, Psychology, Benefits of grassroots football
Here are your highlights for this week:
Practice of the week
This set of slides covers a whole range of 2v2 games, which can be used in a progression, with plenty of useful coaching points.
What I liked even more about this though, is the first couple of pages detailing the benefits of playing small sided games - compared to ‘full-size’ matches: more touches of the ball, more learning and more fun.
Topic of the week
Our start of the season is still several weeks away, so it was good timing to read these handy tips on preparing players psychologically for the new season.
This suggested several good questions to ask our group of players, either in our first session or ‘at home’ so they have time to think about it.
Numbers of the week
Good to see the English FA laying out the benefits of grassroots football. And nice to know we are all contributing our part to this!
I hope you enjoyed this. Have a great week!
