Players that will not pass | S...

I have 3 players at under 14 level, that seem to think running with the ball and not passing is the best way forward, could anybody suggest how I might get round this.

I am about to undertake a huge responsibility by scouting for my club. I would like to find out from the pro's: What exactly should I be looking for in a player/team? Where should I sit for the best possible view? What else should I know to stand out from the other scouts? Thank you!

Hello, my name is Wisdom and I'm goalkeeper for two teams. I was wondering if anyone knew any drills or tips that would help me gradually become better on diving on my weaker side. There will rare times where I do save shots on my weaker side but there are also times where I don't save those shots.I was also wondering if there any tips or drills that can help my goal kicks from the ground. I can get there right spot but I'm not generating enough power in it.Many thanksWisdom, Goalkeeper

How often do you repeat a sess...

Over the last 12 months i have been trying to make sure that no 2 sessions are the same. We train twice a week and sometimes it takes a while to understand a drill or objective so this led me to thinking would it be better to have a core amount of sessions and repeat over the season ?IF we train 50 sessions per year would it be better to have e.g 10 sessions that we rotate around so that when it comes round again the kids already have an understanding rather than create something new every time ?If i went this way and then further split this to 5 areas to focus on with 2 sessions for each focus i.e keeping possession would this be better than trying to create something new for every single session ? Obviously things would evolve so a session would maybe have something added but to have an amount of core session plans that rotate around over a period of time, is this the more effective way to develop ?

Team thrashed every week - whe...

Team keep getting thrashed every week - where to start? Having been the sole coach/manager of a little league team for the past two years, this year I lost all my senior players. I was therefore presented with 10 brand new lads, some of whom have never played competitive football. We are 8 games in and my lads are getting thrashed every week. The main problems are that they cannot get the ball out of their half, positions are usually a mess, finishing and chance creation are non-existent, and they don't apply any pressure or are unable to tackle. The main problems are keeping the ball as a team, getting it in the opponents half and staying there, and creating/finishing chances. I only have 1 and a half hours a week with them. I don't really know what to do, and I'm a little desperate. Does anybody have any advice? Thanks for literally anything.

I have been using Sportplan now for 3 years and can honestly say that I have never repeated the same session twice. My girls are always focused and are improving every year. Thanks Sportplan.

Debbie Cross Australia

What a fantastic tool. The Chalkboard and session tools make an unbelievable difference in making training plans in both time and organization. I will be instructing all of my assistant coaches that this tool must be used for all sessions during the season, so that we may build a club coaching resource library.
