Questions this workshop will aim to answer:

How can we, as coaches, support the development of skilful players?
What does ‘skilful’ look like across the FA 4 corners?
What can coaches expect to take away?
1) Some example practices that they could use to support them with this topic.
2) An understanding of how constraints can encourage the player to develop skilful solutions
3) Knowledge of how the 4 Corners connect to encourage skilful play
Overview of the event
This event will take a look into how we can help develop skilful behaviour within our players, what it looks like across the 4 corners, what practices might help and how we can shape the practice to encourage more exploration of skilful solutions.
The workshop will showcase a number of practices for you to consider. It will highlight how we can apply a range of constraints that will present new problems for our players to overcome, it will ask you to observe and consider how the 4 corners interconnect and influence how players adapt to new situations.
After attending the workshop, 2 hours of Coach Development will be added to your FAN record.
