The 5-Minute Football Coach #66
Through the thirds in 2v1s, Attention-seeking players, How to improve sessions
I hope you are all well! Here are this week’s 3 coaching tips:
⚽️ Practice of the week
A good small-sided game to work on going through the thirds, by creating 2v1 situations in possession. Nice video!
📖 Topic of the week
A bit of a tricky topic this one (click on the tweet to see the whole thread): how do you handle “attention seeking” players? What about trying to connect with them, beyond football?
Thoughts around coaching 'mavericks' who are classified as attention seekers: is there a difference between 'attention seeking' and 'connection seeking' within youth development? If we re-termed it 'connection seeking', how would you change how you treat those same kids.
💡 Idea of the week
Steven Bartlett came up with this nice little infographic to help coaches improve their sessions. Handy!
Coaching in the next 7 days? Tool to support all 3 stages of your delivery. Can you achieve 100 points in each stage. Maybe consider trying an approach you don't normally use or never used and give yourself double points. Habits?
Have a great week
