The 5-Minute Football Coach - Issue #9
Grit, 3-player finishing, Mental health
So we are very much into the end of the season now, with professional leagues finishing and youth football clubs hosting their end-of-the-year events up and down the country. Here is your selection of links for this week anyway, enjoy!
Topic of the week
A nice short article of the importance of developing Grit in football players: a desire to play the game and take responsibility regardless of pressure.
Practice of the week
A drill for 3 players to combine to finish, using 4 different variations.
Campaign of the week
This week is Mental Health Awareness Week - an important topic worth sharing and considering, not just for players but also for us coaches, staff, parents. Personally I find regular trail running very helpful (and just last weekend completed my first ultra-marathon).
Have a great week everyone!
