Dear Fellow Coach,
Last week Soccertutor.com attended a seminar outlining a comprehensive technical coaching program. The session was run by Concept 4 Football, lead by Ex. West Ham United Technical Development Coach and International director Gwynne Berry.
Gwynne has a lot of strong views on the importance of technical training especially from a young age. Just one of the things he said that made total sense was "You cannot progress to tactical aspects of the game without being technically accomplished"..
He went on to mention a phrase that has been banded around "Let the Game be the Teacher". The reliance of solely coaching through small sided games has a fundamental flaw, unless combined with an extensive technical development program.
However, just working on technical aspects is not enough, why? They need to perform them technically correct.. so the coaching points you give them is what makes the real difference!
So using Tactics Manager Software I've created one of the technical practices for you that Gwynne used at the Concept 4 Football coaching clinic (London Soccer Dome 7 Jun 2011).
At West Ham United F.C. we firmly believe that outstanding technical ability is essential for Premiership success. The development in our Academy players technique under Gwynne has been excellent.. Tony Carr – Academy Director West Ham United F.C.
Concept 4 Football is a professional technical skills coaching programme designed for youth football players by Gwynne Berry. This programme has been successfully developed with Premier League elite academy players and is now being delivered worldwide at grassroots level too!
Learn step-by-step how to develop your players to premier league academy standards
difference to the technical skills of your players development!
These DVD's answered for me and my coaches at our club the need to expose our 5/6 Year Olds to technical skills at an early age. We are reaping the rewards.
Cant wait for the next set Club Chairman from Colchester
Coaching Book that combines Technical,
Tactical Practices and Small Sided Games
If you read one book make it this one.
Very easy to read and follow, logically structured with match related practices linked to conditioned small sided games. Wish this had been written 14 years ago when I first started out.
I have bought 10 copies for our club to issue to our first year coaches/Young Leaders, no higher compliment. Dk Roche - Level 3 Youth Development
