Then in September, we have the Ray Power One Day Masterclass:
Ray Power is the author of best-selling coaching books ‘Making the Ball Roll’ and the ‘Deliberate Soccer Practice’ series. He is a UEFA A Licence Coach, Coach Educator and qualified teacher. Ray has international experience having coached in England, mainland Europe and with international players in Africa.
1-day workshop: Based on Ray Power’s Deliberate Soccer Practice book series, this one-day football coach education masterclass will give participants first-hand education and guidance on the topic of Deliberate Practice in football.
The program mixes theoretical and practical elements to show coaches how to make their football training sessions more deliberate, purposeful and ultimately, accelerate the development of their players. It will show coaches how to engage players both physically and cognitively, allowing them to solve more problems and make better, football-related decisions on the pitch.
The event will focus on the topics of possession, attacking and defending over the course of the day, and offer an intimate, sport-specific setting to encourage Q&A, discussion and networking between participants.
Much has been written and commented in coaching circles discouraging ‘line’ drills, block practice and static training sessions – this course will show the coach the ‘what to do’ rather than the ‘what not to do’.
This event may well change how you coach forever!
