Warmup game, Attacking with width, Motivating players
I hope you’re well. Here are your coaching tips for this week:
⚽️ Practice of the week
To get started, a fun little game from the French national team, great to finish off a warmup:
France National Team - Fun SAQ 🇫🇷 Setup: • 2 end lines are placed 8 yards either side of the central line. • 2 colours are placed either side. Green/Red one side, Blue/Yellow the other. • Whatever colour the coach signals, the players must react and sprint the OPPOSITE.
🥅 Session of the week
