Training Review (21/10/2020)
Yes the fundamentals collectively as a group of what they have been taught are the following.
- Call for the ball
- Take a touch
What I mean by traits is how the individual reacts to a situation. Some lead off the left foot, some jump before controling the ball, all unique to them, what they have consciously taught themselves and not by me.
To anyone watching it was chaos with balls going everywhere but so much came out of it, so glad the club supply us with 30+ balls.
Overview & Highlight
When demonstrating scanning I asked a leading question on why should we scan and how can we help as a team mate. We had what I call the 'spoon fed' answers which players have remembered from me, but the highlight was this from Nataniel.
Like A Rabbit? Looking both ways
What an amazing insight into how their minds see things in football and relate it into something in the real world. So I asked further what do you mean looking both ways?
- Like a rabbit? Always looking both ways. You know, looking everywhere for an predictor so he doesnt get eaten.
A great answer, something all of the children then understood and put into practice in the opening activity.
