How to Write a Training Session Plan

“That old saying holds true for soccer coaches. To get the most out of your team’s training session the coach must be prepared. Thinking and writing are inextricably bound together – “think it and ink it.” Write out your training session plan! Your scheduled training sessions are the opportunities for coaches and players to share knowledge. The final goal is to guide your players to improved performance in their matches.”

Navigating the Coach-Parent Relationship

“Today’s coach has to be much more than the word implies. He or she has to be a manager coach. Without parents there are no players. With a young team and plenty of parents the coach needs a system to keep everyone onside. Disgruntled parents means unhappy players. Unhappy players produce disgruntled parents. It can be a massive challenge.”
