Match Day Footwork Tips

I am currently coaching a new group of players and working on their footwork. During practice and drills they understand the concept really well, but when I put them into games, they lose all knowledge of the footwork they have just done. I was wondering if there are any tips I can use to help them?ThanksAbigail

most players will have training mode and playing mode.  getting them to concentrating on a new skill will always be tough when they are in game mode as instinct takes over and they will revert to previous behaviours without being conscience of it.  the way to make them aware is to give them a reason to be aware.  this can be done by telling them that you are counting the number of times they do the correct footwork each quarter and that the reward at the next training will be (whatever drill or game they love)  you can do the opposite and say every time you count them doing the wrong footwork that is X drill (which they obviously dislike)  up to you what will work best for your team.  constantly remind them through the game by calling out good footwork, or think about footwork ect...whatever you think will remind them about their feet to help them stay focussed.
