A great coaching book for developing you as a coach and your team
on 29 October 2015
A very good coaching book - the thing I like about this book is that it is written in a very coach friendly way - it doesn't have page after page of coaching drill pictures that you find in other books (these can be good, but also confusing). This book is more advisory and developmental than providing a list of drill after drill - it gives you tips and methods for structuring your coaching and how to encourage your players to stop and think for themselves. The book does concentrate on coaching (at coaching sessions) rather than setting up the team for the game - I would have liked to have seen a section called "Match Day" or something which helps inexperienced coaches like me prepare for matches - I am still looking for a text which gives guidance on that subject! I really like the way the book feels almost handwritten - it looks a lot less commercial than polished than many other book, however - it flows through a set of thoughts, challenges and hand drawn drills - you could imagine the author having a version of this book on a notepad...- the format works for me!
