Best Practice Of The Week
As coaches, and soccer enthusiasts we naturally want to win and are competitive. However, it is important to remember the role we have in developing our players and ensuring they are having a positive experience throughout.
One idea of how to ensure players remain motivated when things are perhaps not going our way......target setting before the game.
I have seen this by a couple of DS coaches already and its a fantastic way to help player development. Before the game set your team a target to achieve....it may be 10 shots on target, putting together 5 passes in a row....anything that you have been working on that week in practice works.
This had be a fantastic way to help motivate your players, and help them developmentally to improve their game.
But yes....winning does feel good as well!!
