The 5-Minute Football Coach #40
4 corners, Coaching futsal, Speaking less
Here are your highlights for this week:
⚽️ Practice of the week
A classic setup with 4 corner target zones - great for encouraging composure on the ball and quick 360-degree thinking. 1 point for receiving in a zone, 2 points for dribbling in - nice stuff.
📖 Topic of the week
Futsal keeps gathering more momentum amongst coaching circles, but where to start if you have never coached futsal, only ‘normal’ football?
Well, what about not one, but two, free guides on futsal coaching, from the UEFA and FIFA? Both are great, cover loads of topics including session plans, coaching philosophies, etc.
💡 Idea of the week
How much do you say as a coach, and why? Gavin Rose suggests not to say much, simply due to your players’ naturally limited ability to handle information.
I hope you enjoyed this. Have a great week!
