Tips for Team Coaches for Training

  • Keep it simple, and have a plan before each training session begins
  • Keep things interactive and moving
  • Involve parents as your helpers, this will keep things moving and help to keep everyone engaged
  • Wherever possible, make things into a game
  • Present information in kids’ terms
  • Don’t assume anything – go over all the basics, even if it is just refreshing their memory

General Tips

  • Summarise team’s activity after training and games: be specific, and recognise progress and successes
  • Keep criticism private – if it is necessary, take the player aside, and do not belittle
  • Celebrate the individual talents and differences of your players
  • If you need help, ask for it! Encourage your players to do the same
