We as coaches have a huge responsibility, to younger children in particular.
This could be the first experience of football a young child has and we need to make it as enjoyable as possible
The last thing we want is for them to hate participating before they’ve had chance to learn that football is a fantastic game, enjoyed by millions.
I’m sure you have all seen the screaming, vein popping coach on the side of the pitch and phrases such as
‘COME ON!! WHAT WAS THAT!!??’, ‘THAT’S RUBBISH!! WHAT ARE DOING!?’ and many more truly encouraging words!
I believe that children learn better subconsciously, in a positive, fun, exciting and stimulating environment where there is no pressure of failing and every single action is praised before criticised.
The order of correcting mistakes or incorrect technique should be…
“That was an excellent attempt of a drag back! Well done!”
“TRY doing it this way”
“BRILLIANT that’s exactly how I want it done!”
