How to use this page

LEARN THE SESSION

Work through each exercise individually. [Even inside initially]. Get Familiar with them, then take the session outside.

REALLY IMPORTANT INFO

All new techniques below are shown at the most basic introductory level (with a couple of progression levels). If any of these exercises is at the wrong level for you, and you need a more advanced level for the exercise,  then go to the link provided (with each exercise) and choose an exercise from this link, that is at the very edge of your ability level.

PICK 3 LEVELS FOR EACH EXERCISE

The starting level should be comfortable. Use this as a warm up. The next level should be a challenge but doable. The third level should be a t the very edge (if not outside) you current ability level. To achieve success at this level would be a big achievement.

FAILURE GOES HAND IN HAND WITH SUCCESS

Chase and embrace enevitable failure when practicing, whilst always striving to improve to the degree that you don't make mistakes.....but if you get to this level, that is - you aren't making mistakes then raise the bar so that you make mistakes again. Mistakes should be an integral part of each exercise. Without mistakes and a motivation to fix them, no development will occur.

DO THE FULL SESSION

When you are ready and are keen to work hard , challenge yourself by doing a full circuit (3 sets each)* at as high an intensity as you can.

*(Recommended set = 1 min on, then 30 second rest).

Practice on the very edge of your ability level

It is critical the players practice on the very edge of their ability level. If an exercise is too easy then very little development occurs. If it is too hard, it can be frustrating and demotivating.

Exercise #7 : Head Up : Decision

Develop some fundamental technical Components of Playing the Game

Create the space : Hit the Pass

Even though the key aspect of this activity is to get the head up, watch the other player and make a decision, it is also about having as much fun as possible playing this game. This is what practice is for after all.

If you are using a partner (parent) who is not a player themselves then don't have to use a ball. As with all activities, adapt and improvisation based on what you have access to.

If you would like to play a different game then that is obviously ok, but remember : All games should have an element of attacking and defending if possible, or at least the need to get the head up, analyse some information, and make a decision based on this analysis.

 

 

DO THE FULL SESSION
