SPACED RETRIEVAL PRACTICE FOR BETTER COACHING/LEARNING PART 1

I’ve posted somewhat extensively in regards to using classroom teaching methods into coaching as the coach-player relations hip is essentially the same. The coach teaches player/s how they want them to play then goes ahead and tries to instill that so that the players become autonomous and can carry it out come game day all...

COLLINGWOOD PRESSING DEFENSE VIDEO

It’s hard not to love what Collingwood is doing right now and it’s no surprise to me who sat through hours of pre-season training footage of the Pies and everything was fast, forward and intensive, and it’s showing in the early part of the season where some teams seem to not even know it’s round...

BUILDING YOUR TRAINING ACVTIVITIES

There are real staple training drills that most coaches use year in and year out and if this continues then they’ll never die. This will lay out a framework to ensure that you are designing and using training activities that have far more representation to the game itself which will in turn change the focus...

COACHING ISSUES WITH A CONSTRAINTS-LED APPROACH

Back in February I posted about a Twitter thread put together by tennis coach Philip O ‘Callaghan on how coaches can start implementing a constraints-led approach, which hopefully gave you some idea’s on where to start doing this, with most local football coaching of all levels still sitting in the dark ages of “I say,...

6v4 to 3v5 TRAINING ACTIVITY

This training activity focuses on both teams being able to maintain possession in their respective boundaries. The starting set up looks like this: Team Blue had 1 player along each side of the playing area (30x30m or so adjusting as needed) and then another 2 players in the middle of the playing area. Team Orange...

ST KILDA TRANSITION OFFENSE

The Saints won an almost-unwinnable game yesterday with 14 injuries prior to round 1 and 2 key forward debuts but we should never be surprised what extreme effort can do, although it looked like Freo was. In this short clip we have the Saints losing the center clearance but regaining possession just on the edge...

CUES v CONSTRAINTS FOR BETTER COACHING OUTCOMES

These notes come from a Twitter thread from Rugby performance coach Nick Winkelman on cues v constraints for better coaching outcomes. Coaches have a tendency to almost commentate what they’re seeing which results in too much instruction to many players all during game time – I don’t think I’ve ever heard, let alone acted upon,...

USING YOUR DEFENSIVE ANCHOR

Defensive 50 Intercept Marks are a huge part of football these days so it makes sense to instill some tactics/strategies to help make this happen so you’re not hoping someone takes a pack mark from out of nowhere which is not really controllable. What is controllable though is creating a defensive formation when out of...

SCORING SYSTEMS TO BETTER YOUR TRAINING GAMES

Once you’ve (hopefully) moved your coaching away from cone to cone drills to something closer to a games-based approach, then it’s time to really start making those games work for what you want to see on game day. A game is general is not the worst idea in that it consists of much of the...

CONTESTED BALL FRAMEWORK PART 2

If you want to take a load off your coaching load then frameworks are the way to go. Frameworks allow both coach and player to get on the same page tactically/technically and can trickle down to player and player as well for team cohesion. Players can use them outside of training and games to build...
