SESSION REVIEW – W/C 25th November ’19
LEARNING BLOCK – Dominating Possession | FOCUS – Supporting Team Mates When In Possession
PHYSICAL CHALLENGE – Can I find really good spaces & angles to help my team mates? | SOCIAL CHALLENGE – Can I show encouragement and be a good team player if my team mates loses the ball?
WHY? – PHYSICAL | This week our players were focused on what they do when they haven’t got the ball and understood how important this is when your team are in possession. We discussed the importance of being ‘alive’ when their team are in possession and what they should be doing in order to find the ball. Often, players will stand still to receive which makes you easier to mark from the opponents – instead, being on the move at all times and finding spaces and gaps to receive the ball makes you harder to mark and it’s therefore easier to find the ball. We spoke to the players about not giving up if they don’t receive after finding a great space, even the top players don’t receive the ball all of the time when they make clever movements!
WHY? – SOCIAL | How we communicate and encourage our team mates in this process is really important, as team mates and friends we have to be supportive of our players around us if they lose the ball and we must show the desire to attempt to win the ball back if our team loses possession – by being positive in these situations creates a good team spirit and allows us to learn and develop well within the team.
TOP LEARNERS | Well done to our Top Learners below who have impressed us with their learning, these include players from Berkshire Futsal Club and FC Bracknell.
