England DNA workshop (5-11): Beginning to combine with team mates

The Foundation Phase (FP) England DNA

Throughout the 2019/20 season, The FA will be working with County FA (CFA) partners to better connect grassroots coaches across the country to our England DNA; the coaching and playing philosophy of all England teams.

This is an opportunity for us to make sure every young player enjoys their football. By working together, we can give boys and girls across the country the best experience possible in the game, and we can overcome the unique challenges that occur in different age groups.

In this series of workshops, we concentrate on the Foundation Phase (FP). We will tackle specific topics and themes designed around the needs of players aged 5-11 and their coaches.

What is this workshop about?

We will look at how teamwork can be used to bring further benefits to your players.  To help do this, you develop an understanding of the psychology behind a player’s decision making - one player may be unwilling to share the ball whereas others will recognise the benefits of combining to maximise situations.

To combat this, the workshop will contain a practical and theory element, meaning you will leave with practices and games to help your players better understand when and how to share the ball.

What are the learning outcomes?

  • To further develop the role of the coach in fostering an environment of fun and engagement that ultimately leads to lifelong enjoyment of the game

  • An exploration of the psychological development of children around their willingness to share and work together

  • An understanding of how coaches can start to help children recognise when to combine with other players and how this may lead to a greater effectiveness in the game.

This workshop is on Sunday 15 March from 6pm - 9pm at the FDC, Bowthorpe, NR5 9ED.
