🥅 Practice of the week
Interesting video showcasing several small drills, all involving obstacles of some sort. Good for agility as well as passing and shooting at speed:
📖 Topic of the week
With the new 2021/22 season getting closer, the IFAB produced a detailed presentation of the latest changes in the laws of football. With a particular focus on clarifying the handball rule, again. Wait for the presentation to load then use the < and > icons to slide through the various example videos!
💡 Idea of the week
Coaching young children also involves dealing with the various knocks and conditions that can hinder their enjoyment of football. So this is a very useful description of Osgood Schlatters, a condition of the knee which I wish I had known more about years ago! Some good advice to share with players.
I hope you enjoyed this. Until next time, have a great week!
