maybe its me , but not for me , sorry
on 10 October 2016
just written a review on another coaching book , so maybe it is me. the books are filled with drills, some you think "yeah that could work" others you will look at for a second a flick to the next. I am just not sure where we are as coaches in the UK ? i coach under 8 ( 7 year olds0
they turn up to train , we warm up and we get straight to work on first touch, dribbling and then 1v1 and on to 4v4 small sided games. when i get any group to stand around a load of cones whilst i explain a drill , i have their attention but the application is never there . if i ask a kid dribble from the half way line , best those two defenders and shoot they are head down boom ! are we now coaching the life out of these kids ?
