Here are your 3 picks of the week. And a reminder to please fill in this 2-minute survey to help improve the newsletter! 🙏
⚽️ Practice of the week
A simple game to work on decision-making in 1v1 situations - and a chance to highlight the importance of the first touch.
📖 Topic of the week
Following on from SuperKicks last week, here are more ideas to keep yourself and your team busy at home:
a nice blog on how to set ‘Home challenges’ to your team, on Heja (a really good app BTW)
a series of individual challenges worth giving a try
the TopTekkers app for players to use throughout the year
and finally a lengthy collection of sports resources for home: movies, books, apps and more
Enough to keep entertained for a while!
💡 Idea of the week
Isn’t it nice when science confirms what we knew from intuition or experience… A recent study from the Barca innovation hub explained the qualities of good player feedback: concise, focused, prepared, visual. Spot on!
I hope you enjoyed this. Have a good week and stay safe!
