SMALL SIDED GAMES AND HOW ALL COACHES SHOULD BE DOING THEM 6/6 – FORWARD PRESS GAME

Once you get your head around implementing small sided games for most of your training time then it’s time to think about how you can build them around specific aspects of your game model. Like cone to cone skill drills, which doesn’t train skill, it trains technique, we tend to train team tactics, strategies and...

SMALL SIDED GAMES AND HOW ALL COACHES SHOULD BE DOING THEM 5/6 – 3v2 x 3

This game has a focus on decision making, holding the football and only taking 100% options (for the most part). One of the biggest issues in community football of pretty much every level is the wanting to go super-fast as much as possible and the age-old mantra of “your first option is always your best...

SMALL SIDED GAMES AND HOW ALL COACHES SHOULD BE DOING THEM 4/6 – NETBALL FOOTY

I love the zone set up of under 8’s footy and I believe it could, and probably should be, used in some shape or form in under 10’s or even 12’s footy, especially if we’re gonna roll with using full ground games for kids that can only kick 15m. This game uses zones similar to...

SMALL SIDED GAMES AND HOW ALL COACHES SHOULD BE DOING IT 3/6 – BUILD UP GAME

The 3rd small sided game in this series is a game built around maintaining possession. To maintain possession the ball carrier needs to wait until a suitable option comes up and for a good portion of this game, it will just be a matter of “taking your 8 (secs)” and this should present itself. For...

SMALL SIDED GAMES AND HOW ALL COACHES SHOULD BE DOING IT 2/6 – 4v4 + NEUTRAL WINGERS

This small sided game is one you would use to focus a on and encourage the use of width with your ball movement. If you’ve read my Sydney Swans game style content as well as the Collingwood ball movement post from yesterday, using width for both player and ball movement is the secret to opening...

The Pies are hot right now and after beating the Dees yesterday, have now entered the 8 and Jack Crisp gave some saucy info on their ball movement while being interviewed by On the Couch last night that I thought I’d clarify for those interested.

SMALL SIDED GAMES AND HOW ALL COACHES SHOULD BE DOING IT PART 1/6 – 3 ZONES, 3 GAMES

For the last week we’ve looking at trying to get coaches of all levels to start shifting away from traditional training methods of unopposed cone to cone drills that train what you want to happen, but not what does actually happen, in games. This lack of perception-action coupling provides zero decision making from your players...

THE CONSTRAINTS LED APPROACH AND WHY ALL COACHES SHOULD BE DOING IT

So far in the last week we’ve looked at fishtanking, the ooda loop and player problem-solving in a move to get us coaches to develop more iron clad frameworks around what we do to ensure sustained player development and retention. Today we look at using the constraints led approach to player development which is pretty...

PLAYER PROBLEM-SOLVING FRAMEWORK AND WHY ALL PLAYERS SHOULD BE DOING IT

In my opinion, one of the biggest, if not the biggest thing missing from local/amateur football, are framework/loops. Last week I posted about the OODA Loop and how that can be used to up your coaching level and today we’ll look a player driven framework which would usually be developed with a coach around a...
