Dear {sForename},

It's all happening here at Better Soccer Coaching. Last week we launched our latest soccer coaching manual - 64 Small-Sided Games - which has been really well received. This week we've launched our very own blog site - soccer-coaching-blog.com.

For those of you new to the world of blogging, the aim of the site is to provide an alternative arena for those of us working at Better Soccer Coaching to set out our thoughts and views on a variety of soccer coaching related topics. If any of our blog posts provoke a reaction, visitors are welcome to post a comment and start a debate. There will be regular contributions from myself, our managing director Andrew Griffiths, Soccer Coach Weekly editor Dave Clarke and Chelsea FC Youth Development Officer Mike Beale. We also plan to feature occasional entries from well-known names in the world of coaching and the sports media.

There are already a few posts up there. Andrew Griffiths has posted an entry introducing the blog and I've posted two articles - one talking about my own background and experiences and another posing the question "What Makes A Great Soccer Coach?". Head on over to
soccer-coaching-blog.com and have a look for yourself. Please feel free to post a comment if the spirit moves you.

Have Fun With Headers and Build Player Confidence

Players shouldn’t be scared of heading a soccer ball. You need to get them used to doing it and build up their confidence so they can do it in matches. Don’t spend too long on it, but do make it fun, says David Clarke.

Most cases of concussion in soccer injuries are from heads clashing rather then heading the ball. From under 4s right through to under 16s your players need to practise heading. Young players from under 4 through to under 7 should practice heading by throwing the ball in the air, let it bounce on the ground once, and then try to head the ball forward, not up again. The grass takes a lot of the power out of the ball, and they are heading the ball from a much lower height. This drill develops good judgment of a ball from the bounce, and confidence that the ball will not hurt them as they learn the skill.

Two fun ways to coach heading

From under 7s upwards I always look for fun ways to coach players how to be confident in heading a ball and how to make it work for the team in matches. These are two very effective ways to do it.
  • Get your players into pairs with one player as the server and the other the header. The header must start by kneeling up with his arms by his sides.
  • The server throws the ball and the player dives forward to head the ball, follow through and end up on his arms.
  • Tell your players to try to contact the ball and not let it contact them, and hit it on the hard part of their head using their whole body to follow through.

Heading it backwards helps confidence

You can also use this fun game to help with the back header, important at corners when your players are trying to head the ball on. It also gets them used to flicking the ball on when it is banging around in mid-air. I like this exercise because it gets the players involved in team work as well as being fun. They are going to try to head the ball back along the line and the game is to see which team can get it from front to back quickest.

Key coaching tip: keep sessions short but make sure you do them often

Heading is an activity you don’t want to do for too long especially with a younger player but you do want to make sure they are comfortable with it, and that it is something they are not afraid of because it is a very important part of the game.

 


* Publisher's Tip *

Too Much Talking

During our match this weekend, one of our players set off on a strong run down the wing. I yelled at him to pass to Sam in the middle. Sam misheard the call and turned to look at me with a quizzical expression. The ball rolled harmlessly away from him and the attack was over. Had I kept my mouth shut Sam would have scored.

In recent games I've been making a conscious effort not to over-coach. I realised that the players had reached a level of ability where it was time to let them find their own way on the pitch and make their own decisions.

The simple fact is that young players have enough on their minds during a game without having to take in a constant stream of extra instructions.

By all means try to correct errors as the game progresses. For example if a player is constantly drifting out of position, tell him where you want him to be. But don't go on and on about it. Give them the chance to figure it out for themselves.

Similarly, don't spend half-time issuing a whole set of new instructions. Your players will not be able to take it all in. Just try some encouraging words and maybe highlight a few things that the team are doing really well. Don't pick out individuals unless you have something positive to say about everyone.

And don't bother talking to your players about the match straight after the final whistle. Leave that for your next training session when you are able to work on some of the issues that have arisen from the game.

NEVER HUNT AROUND FOR A FRESH FOOTBALL WARM-UP AGAIN
Are your warm-up routines a little stale?
Are your players bored?

Do you need some inspiration for the training ground or before a match?

Dear Coach,

Do you find that you use the same warm-up routines at the start of every training session or match? It’s that old “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it” trap. But many coaches tell me that it is the warm-up that prompts most of the “same old, same old” complaints from players.

You can build on a successful warm-up, so it’s worth investing in getting them right.

The task for you as a coach is to stimulate your players.

And that’s where The Ultimate Football Warm-Ups Manual comes in.

Order Now!


What are the benefits?


If you can come up with a new warm-up idea, or even a variation on an old theme, you should get a more positive response from the players in the rest of the session. They will then be more likely to achieve your objectives.

The Ultimate Football Warm-Ups Manual is designed to break you and your players out of your old habits. By picking and choosing the warm-ups which most suit your players, and rotating them regularly, you will:

  • improve them physically
  • improve them technically
  • improve their decision-making
  • improve their problem-solving
  • reduce the occurence of injuries
  • inspire them to improve their performance
  • build team spirit and understanding
I dip in to these warm-ups week-in week-out with my players at the Chelsea FC Academy and I am absolutely certain that they will reinvigorate your training and you and your players will look forward to every session. What’s more, you’ll have a lot of fun together in the process.

The manual features 126 warm-ups including:
  • Warm-ups without a ball
  • Agility ladder warm-ups
  • Warm-ups with a ball each
  • Warm-ups with a ball between two
  • Group warm-ups
  • Warm-up circuits
  • Pre-match warm-ups
  • Warm downs
Each warm-up includes:

 

  • a clear illustration showing how to arrange your players and the actions and movements required
  • a list of instructions for organising your players
  • what to shout – to help you get across the key action points
  • progressions to help your players take the warm-up to the next level

Order Now!

I can’t overemphasize how important it is that your warm-ups reflect real match conditions as far as possible.

It’s also important to ensure that your players get as many touches with a ball as possible – that’s why they’re there!

You can also rest assured that I’ve taken full account of the latest thinking on the scientific and medical aspects of the warm-up and your players will benefit from increased fitness and fewer injuries.

Much thought has gone into the design of each warm-up to ensure that it is easy to follow and easy to communicate to your players.

Barry Duncan, Great Wakering Rovers Lions and Tigers, UK

“The manual has given my training sessions structure and planning, as well as making the players think and most importantly have fun. My attendance at training is at an all time high.”
Stuart Davis, Berkeley Vale Soccer Club, Australia

Adrian Everett, Jex Rangers U13s, UK

Dear Coach,

Small-sided games are acknowledged throughout the coaching profession - from grassroots to the top of the professional game - as one of the best ways to coach football skills and tactics.

Why use small-sided games?

  • More player participation
  • Different games mean different problems to solve and skills to use
  • More touches of the ball
  • More passes attempted
  • More 1v1s attempted
  • More goals scored
  • More goalkeeper participation
  • No referee needed
  • No results recorded
  • Players take responsibility

No coaching - the game is the teacher

64 Small-Sided Football Games is a compilation of games that I use week-in, week-out with my young players at Chelsea FC.

I'm a firm believer in the idea that players learn the game from playing. I've designed these games to help coach players in every aspect of the game, from individual core skills, to team-based attacking strategies.

These games are tried, tested and proven with both grassroots beginners and top youth players in professional academies. They are designed to stimulate players and lead them down the most effective paths of learning.

Some games get your players working on passing skills in competitive scenarios, while others are more tactically focused, providing your players with the skills to see the opportunities before them on the pitch.

Players will develop core skills through the sheer number of touches that each game guarantees. At the same time they will develop "football vision" - the ability to see spaces on the pitch - as each game is played in realistic game conditions.

And because of the pitch dimensions, you can run several games simultaneously, perhaps focusing on different disciplines, so that all of your players are playing all of the time.

64 Small-Sided Football Games will give you an array of skills, techniques and strategies to give your team an edge.

So why not be among the first to own a copy of this unique resource?

You can buy 64 Small-Sided Football Games in two formats:

An A4 PDF document stored on your computer. You can help the environment by saving trees and using less chemical-based ink by only printing out the games you need for the day.

An A4 user-friendly spiral bound printed report for your bookshelf or desk. Spiral bound means you can use it without having to hold the page open as with most bound books. You can copy or print as many copies as you like for distribution to your players and colleagues.


A sample page from the manual

  • 64 Small-Sided Football Games one per page, covering every aspect of the game
  • PDF and spiral-bound - take it straight onto the training ground or print and distribute amongst your players and colleagues

     
  • Set up instructions listing equipment needed and how to lay out the pitch
  • Rules of each game clearly explained so that everyone knows what they're doing
  • Three illustrations for each game to help you and your players visualise the progression of the game

Why small-sided games work

The inspiration for the use of small-sided games in coaching lies in street football and "kickabouts" on the nearest available patch of grass - small groups of players playing intense, high-tempo, skilful, competitive-yet-fun football.

It's widely held that the practise was first adopted as a structured coaching method by the Dutch Football
Association back in the 1970s under the guidance of Rinus Michels, the inspiration behind what became known as Total Football.

The Dutch recognised the decline in street football and the damaging effect that would have on developing players in future generations. They formulated the 4v4 method as a response and it became widely known as “the Dutch way”. The Dutch produced some of the best football teams the
world has ever seen - an amazing achievement for a nation
of that size.

Tony Carr, Director of the West Ham United Academy (and editor of Smart Sessions), describes how when he was a player at West Ham in the 1960s the great Ron Greenwood used small-sided games at the heart of his coaching philosophy. Greenwood produced players of the calibre of Bobby Moore, Geoff Hurst and Martin Peters. Tony is responsible for some of the best players in the modern English game - Cole, Ferdinand, Carrick, DeFoe, Lampard, Terry etc.

Regardless of its origins, small-sided games work and more
and more grassroots coaches and international associations
(see below) are realising the benefits of the approach. Players and teams get better - faster!



64 different games, including:
3 Zone “Playmaker” Game
Free Your Team Mate
Target Man

Possession v Pressure
End Zone Game
Sweeper Game


...and many, many more.

 

Here's what US Youth Soccer say about small-sided games:

"The fewer players on the field, the more possible times a player will come in contact with the ball. In fact, players will find they have no choice; the ball will quickly find them!

More opportunity to solve problems that only the game can present.

Economical Fitness Training... Short duration, high intensity play with ball versus running laps.

We want our young soccer players to have more individual teaching time with the coach! Less players on the field and less players on the team will guarantee this!

The small-sided game allows coaches a perfect opportunity to observe and analyze the individual and collective responses of players under quick game-like conditions in a simple environment.

Players cannot hide or get lost in the small-sided environment. It helps improve competitiveness and aggressiveness.

It’s a FUN environment that focuses on the PLAYER!
"

Tom Goodman, National Director of Coaching Education,
US Youth Soccer

Sir Trevor Brooking:

"Let's have more small-sided games so that they have more ball time. Let's allow them to have fun, take away the importance of winning and stop the young players being afraid of making mistakes. Concentrate on first touch and technique, allow that a short pass can often be more of a killer ball than the big hoof up to the centre-forward."
Sir Trevor Brooking, Director of Football Development,
The English FA

And the Scottish FA say:

"These games are the preferred method of training by professional players and are the most appropriate way of acquiring skills and developing young players."
Football Development Department,
The Scottish FA
 

Dramatically improve your team's performance


As an experienced youth football coach, I know three things to be true about small-sided games:

1. They have improved my players' technique

2. They have boosted our team performance

3. We have a lot of fun of playing them.

64 Small-Sided Football Games will give you a ready made answer to all of your coaching issues. Not scoring enough goals? Use a finishing game. Need your defence to work more as a unit? We have defensive games. Passing not sharp enough? Take your pick. You could use a different game each session without repeating yourself all season.

Your players will love these games. They'll grow in confidence and maturity, their decision-making will be enhanced and their skill and control will be super-charged.

Try a sample page. Print it out and take it to practise. Your players will love it.

64 Small-Sided Football Games
is only available here, so order now and take your players to the next level.

With best wishes
