Wiltshire FA Coaches Club
Session: CREATING POSITIVE PLAYER EXPERIENCES (tailored to those coaching 12 - 16 yr olds)

Date: Wednesday 26th May 2021 (7.30pm to 8.30pm)

In this workshop we look at engaging teenage players and how to tackle the high drop-out rates we see all too often in this age group.

So, what’s behind this trend? Research suggests players choose to stop playing for many reasons. One of the main reasons shaping their choice is the quality of their experience, in both training and matches. Young adolescent boys and girls are going through a lot of changes and it’s essential for us to understand who the youngsters are as people, why they play and what they want from their experience.

During this workshop we look at how coaches can better understand, build relationships with, and engage boys and girls in this age group. We will explore what this looks like on and off the pitch, and the impact this has on their playing experience.

This session will be delivered by the FA's Regional Coaching Team - Vinny Halsall, Martin Dighton & Lawrence Lok.

Wiltshire FA Coaches Club
Session: MASTERING THE BASICS (tailored to those coaching 5 - 11 yr olds)

Date: Wednesday 28th April 2021 (7.30pm to 8.30pm)

In this workshop we explore the key principles of the Foundation Phase. We look at the best ways to engage younger players and how to help them develop their skills on the ball.

Mastering the ball can be tough for younger players. Building confidence in possession is vital at this stage of a child’s development, we must give players as much time on the ball as we can in the foundation phase. This is a fundamental building
block that all later development is built upon.

However, before we start working with our players, we need to know our players. Why do they play? What do they enjoy? What is their relationship with sport? Once we know the answers to these questions we can introduce the right games and challenges for our team and tailor our sessions.

During this workshop we will explore these ideas in the classroom and through practical activities and games with children on the pitch.

This session will be delivered by the FA's Regional Coaching Team - Vinny Halsall, Martin Dighton & Lawrence Lok
