Player Development Objectives

We want to develop a player who can:

  • Read the game and quickly adjust their decisions
  • Use both feet and master the ball (functional technical skills)
  • Perform different modes of locomotion (physically literate)
  • Grow as a player and person in a competitive environment
  • Do the right things at the right time (club values)
  • Play and give their best for their team (be a good teammate)

Coaching Style - Training

Coach Actions

  • Create a favorable learning environment for players to make decisions
  • Create and use adapted exercises or games based on the annual plan and weekly program
  • For each exercise, activity, and game coaching points, define the relevant information that the player must know and process
  • Use a guided pedagogy; pose questions to players while keeping the intensity of the session
  • Make stops when needed on positive situations
  • Be demanding when appropriate (we play on game day as we train)
  • Insist on the quality of movements and respect the details
  • Use competition in the sessions (individual or group)

Coaching Style - Games

Coach Actions
Pre-Game

  • Positive and brief
  • Cover the specific tactics for attacking, defending, including attacking and defensive transitions
  • Remind players of positional roles, if relevant
  • Encourage the right spirit for competition, fun, and learning

During the Game

  • No "over coaching" or micromanagement of decisions - players must make their own decisions and recognize on their own when a new solution is required
  • Talk to player's if necessary (keep the team's momentum and chemistry in balance)
  • Show respect to officials

Half-Time

  • Ask questions on the first half relevant to your goals and objectives
  • Give a brief analysis to the players
  • Make changes if necessary
  • Use a tone appropriate for the age and situation

Post-Game

  • Brief, relevant feedback
