The 5-Minute Football Coach #28
Receive and dribble, How to press, Parents’ complaints
Here are your highlights for this week:
Practice of the week
A pretty nice setup to work on receiving the ball, dribbling and combining, with a couple of simple progressions.
Tactic of the week
The Mastermind has some valuable advice on coaching your team how to press.
I especially liked the list of pressing triggers - I can see us introducing a few of the easier ones, to start with.
Topic of the week
Building relationships with parents is an integral part of being a coach. The Coaching Manual has a short article on how to do this, and in particular on how to answer 4 of the most common complaints that parents may have.
We don’t have a season-long training plan (that some of the answers refer to), as this doesn’t seem practical for us yet, but lots of good advice in there.
I hope you enjoyed this. Have a great week!
