COACHING IS ALL ABOUT GETTING THE BEST OUT OF YOUR PLAYERS. IT IS ABOUT PLAYERS LEARNING ABOUT THEMSELVES, IMPROVING THEMSELVES AND GETTING THE VERY BEST OUT OF THEM SELVES.
COACHING IS ABOUT PROVIDING A SAFE AND FUN/HAPPY PLACE IN WHICH TO LEARN AND PROSPER.
Here is a Post from my work that I did this week for the Albany Junior Soccer Association!
“I have just finished an amazing week of working with an outstanding group of Albany kids in the Football West QBE Country Week Soccer comp.
I’ve sat courses, conferences, workshops etc (and loved them all) and nothing beats hands on day to day learning about yourself and having the ability to get the best out of your team of players.
Yes, I’ve a soccer background. Yes, I’ve been lucky enough to have some amazing soccer coaches in my junior years. And I had a ball getting the best out of a group of kids that I had only just met just 3 months ago.
Massive thanks to our amazing Manager Shelley, who did absolutely anything and everything to make my job very stress free and simple. A credit to our association and Football West!
Coaching is all about technically and tactically getting it right, but more importantly (especially in teams) getting the best out of your players. The focus on the “Ultimate Teamwork” theory into your players and having then trust you to deliver a game plan and tactics. We scored some world class team goals.
These boys delivered us 6 wins, a draw and a loss as we finished second on the ladder and earned a spot in the final!
We lost the final to a very strong Goldfields team who had one shot on target and scored a cracking goal. Our boys put everything into the match, we lost, but the way we played with passion, energy and for each other means the team were absolute winners regardless of the score.
Back to the tennis court Monday morning. Can’t wait. After 10 days of amazing holidays and a very successful soccer experience, I can’t wait to hit the courts for the 2015-16 tennis season!”
