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 event will showcase a number of practices, delivered by our Coach Development Officers, for you to consider. They will highlight how we can apply a range of constraints that will present new problems for our players to overcome, they will ask you to observe and consider how the 4 corners interconnect and influence how players adapt to new situations.
Questions this workshop will aim to answer:
What is a skilful player?
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
Are there any tasks to complete ahead of the event?
