As part of the new BBFA Coaches Network, we will offer coaches the opportunity to continue their development with both virtual and face-to-face workshops. Please find below information regarding this workshop:
Games Based Coaching
Date & Time: Sunday 20th March- 10am-12pm
Venue: Redgrave Sports Centre, Wycombe Road, Marlow, Bucks
Host: Mitch Woodward
Cost: £15 (non BBFA Coaches Member)
FREE (BBFA Coaches Member)
The workshop will challenge learners to consider the advantages of using games in training sessions as opposed to the traditional line drills that we all recognise.
Are drills realistic to the game?
How many players are working at any one time and how many are waiting their turn? Football is an invasion game - are drills?
I will use shooting as the topic to demonstrate the benefits of using a games based session to recreate the chaotic environment that players realistically face when trying to score. What types of finishes can we include in our practice so that players are developing a variety of techniques. Can this happen in the traditional ‘line drill’ of the past when players wait their turn for a set and shot on the edge of the box?
The workshop will ask learners to assess where goals are scored from and how, we as coaches can allow players to practice these types of finishes.
After attending the workshop, 2 hours of Coach Development will be added to your FAN record.
