Tips for planning Football Coaching Drills

Stage 1 - Warmup

Before any Football Coaching Session ensure your players do a warmup, this can involve running movement, or can be more creative using footballs to keep the players interested, or in an ideal world try to involve the Skill / Topic your Football Coaching Session is going to involve.

Stage 2 - Skill Drill

Remember you wouldnt try driving a car along a busy motorway before taking driving lessons and patiently learning how to drive to prepare you for what lies ahead. Let your players practise the Skill / Topic of your Football Coaching Session in an easy to understand routine, this should be setup non-competitive and managed so that your chosen Skill / Topic is repeated every few seconds (this will quickly help your players remember the techniques involved). Try to avoid queing for a turn, give every player a ball where possible, and crucially this should remain a pressure free environment where the players can use trial and error.

Stage 3 - Functional Practise

Now try to progress the Football Coaching Session slightly, give your players a little more freedom and possibly introduce some passive defending or pressure to make the situation a little more real. Remind your players that if the Football Coaching Session is an attacking topic when it is their turn to defend or apply pressure always allow the player practising the Skill / Topic to have success, there is nothing worse than a player who is struggling to pick something up never actually getting a chance to try it as his opponent keeps tackling him before he can. Keep reinforcing the aim of the Football Coaching Session and encourage players to concentrate on that rather than similar moves they may know. They will get a chance to express themselves and make decisions in the next stage!

Stage 4 - Progression into a Match Situation

Now is the time to put the Skill / Topic into practise. Setup a match that can be 2v2, 4v4, 6v6, 7v7, 8v8 or a full 11 aside game, this may or may not involve goal posts. Remember the more players per team will almost certainly mean less touches per player and a smaller number of opportunities to try out what they have learned. Keep reinforcing the aim of the session and challenge the players to make it work when faced with genuine opposition.

Before you start planning...

Ask yourself a very important question...Did you learn to drive a car in one lesson? All Skills / Topics CAN NOT be learnt in one Football Coaching Session. Try to spend between 2 - 4 Football Coaching Session in a row working on the same overall topic but keep refreshing the drills slightly so your players dont get bored!
