How To Coach Soccer
Today we are learning how to coach soccer.This tutorial is geared towards coaches.What's going on little dap! it's jared montz, former pro and founder of online soccer academy.Coaching is a lot more then setting up cones and running drills.It's the mental side of the game that isn't always taught in most coaching courses.The mental game is what really separates great coaches from okay coaches.Be the coach players call a role model.Be the coach players invite to their wedding one day.Be the coach players can trust.Don't.
Be the coach they hate.Don't be the coach they are scared of.Don't be the coach that crushes their confidence.I've been coaching for 10 years, we've done hundreds of osa soccer camps around the united states and we've been producing free online soccer academy tutorials to players and coaches worldwide since early 2009.This tutorial is just a few mental tips i find helpful when coaching.For physical tips, drills, exercises and how to tutorials, watch our 200 free osa tutorials at onlinesocceracademy.Key points! key point one ask questions! keep your coaching points short and ask questions.
When you can.For example if you are working on shooting and a kid keeps missing his shots to the left.Instead of saying, billy, quit missing! you keep missing left.Don't do that.Then billy just runs by you like okay coach.He may not even have heard you.Instead ask a question.Say, billy, love your energy today but your shots keep missing left.Do you know why that's happening now, billy's mind is engaged.He needs to think about his answer versus him not even hearing you and just saying yeah coach.If.
He replies with the right answer, then great you know he's learning.If he replies back with the wrong answer then great, now you know how far off he is and can give him the correct answer which is probably that his shoulders are turning left when he shoots.Key point two use the repeat it back to me trick.Lots of coaches will say something like, sarah, let's pass it with your left foot, yes! then sarah says, yes because you pretty much told her too and then she passes it with.
Her right foot.You are then like looking up at the sky trying to contain your frustration and not pull your hair out if you have any on why she didn't do what you said.Here is where the repeat it back to me trick comes in handy.In your mind, you said left, but in her mind when she said yes for left, but she actually meant right.A great example of this is a story of a player at one of our osa camps in state college, pennsylvania.Smart kid, good player, but just learned a little different then everyone.
Else and there is nothing wrong with that.We were doing a shooting exercise where you dribble up one on one with the goalie and you are suppose to pass the ball with your right foot, into the right side of the goal.In short it was, right, right.I set up the exercise, first five kids are getting it and every shot is right, right into the goal.Then my thinking different player comes up and does it right, left.I say, good shot, but it's right, right not right, left.He says, yeah coach.
As he's running back to the line.Next turn for him he scores right, left again and i'm starting to get frustrated, but i immediately at this point think maybe it's me, not him.Did i set this exercise up wrong so i decide to use the repeat it back to me trick.I say, buddy, it's right, right.Repeat that back to me.He says, yeah coach as he continues to run back to the line.So now i'm like he clearly isn't hearing me because his mind is going so fast.
So i say, come over here.I get him in front of me and off to the side of the exercise and say, the exercise is right, right.Repeat that back to me.He then says, right, left.I start smiling right away because in his mind he had been doing the exercise correct the whole time and he had.He scored his two shots both right, left and they were nice.I then say, no buddy, it's actually right, right.Repeat that back to me.He repeats right, right back to me correctly.
And his next shot was perfect.Right, right.So i know it can be frustrating in those moments when you feel like a player isn't listening to you, but try to take a deep breath and figure out how to fix the problem versus just yelling at them.Try the repeat it back to me trick.Key point three don't yell for mistakes.We all make mistakes.Even top pros do.Great coaches don't yell at players when they make one mistake.Ideally if a player messes up you want your player reacting positive.
And hustling back on defense without even thinking you are mad at them because they know you support them.If your player messes up and immediately looks at the bench area scared you are about to yell at them that is not good.You don't want your players playing scared.Now if they make three mistakes in a row because they aren't paying attention that is a different story.By all means be firm with them and let them know to wake up.Just imagine your boss or coworker yelling at you every time you have a typo.The anxiety of trying to work with that person would be.
Awful.Don't create that feeling for your players.Key point four no long lines.This is a classic.If you have a line of ten players doing one exercise figure out how to make it two lines of five.Shorter lines lead to less standing around and less standing around leads to less chances of players getting bored and getting into trouble.Key point five make it fun and remove pressure.If you watch some of the top pro teams in the world they look like they are having a blast at practice.Laughing, cutting up and.
Then when it's time to get serious they get serious.Do your best to create a fun environment.Create fun, goofy type warm ups to get players to loosen up.Tell them it's okay if they make a mistake and then of course when they do, don't yell at them.These types of actions from you lead to removing pressure for them.When the pressure is removed, they play better.Naturally they will put a little pressure on themselves, but if you can help keep them loose that will do wonders.
For your team.Key point six be positive, not negative.Yes, there are times when you need to talk about negative moments like mistakes with players and that is okay, but do it in the right way.I was coaching a sevenyearold little girl once in a defending exercise.She was smiling big and trying so hard, but the player she was defending just kept running right by her and she was diving in on defense.I could of said, sarah, quit diving in.She is beating you every time.You have to do better!.This is negative and would.
Have dampened her smiling spirit and caused her to put her head down and be scared on the next play.Instead i called her over and started with a positive.I said, sarah, i'm so proud of you for how hard you are working.I see you smiling big.Are you having fun.She replied with a smile, yes and then i said, great! why do you think the defender keeps running by you even though you are working so hard she didn't really know, so i re explained to her how to set her feet and.
Not dive in.She ran back to the line with a smile and her head held high.The very next play she won the ball with confidence! two different styles i could have used with her, but for me, more times then not choosing the positive not negative style usually leads to faster, better results for your players.Helpful tutorials! we have lots of tutorials to help you coach! tutorials on creating a pre practice plan, sessions to do, tips on how to teach juggling, dribbling, passing, shooting, etc.Plus we cover what could go wrong and how.

Soccer Drills Top 5 Soccer Training Drills To Improve Fast
Hey guys.This is matt from epic soccer training.Thanks for checking out the tutorial.I want to take you through a couple of soccer drills that are going to really enhance your ability.A lot of times people think that soccer drills are monotonous and they just go to practice and want to get better but somebody who has played professionally, i can tell you most of the time that people go and play professionally is because they do the right soccer training.There's a different way to train that's going to get you the most results and i want to.
Take you through some of the more basic to, i guess, intermediate ways to improve your soccer drills where you can just go out and you can do them on any field.It doesn't have to be a soccer field but again they're kind of basic but i want to kind of explain as well how you can transition and make them more effective.So say you're more of an intermediate or advanced player.Everybody is still doing these drills.You don't need to reinvent the wheel.So the first one i want to take you through is juggling and the benefit of juggling is.
That you're learning the bottom of the ball.You're learning how the ball is in relation to your body and again, you want to work on both feet as well.So i know most players are rightfooted.I'm a lefty.So you don't always want to do just rightfooted.You want to go back and forth and get your knee involved.Get your chest, your head, all that type of stuff.So again, you want to make sure that you have control of the ball and everything you do is effective.Like it's a great warmup to just go out and be able to juggle and really.
Work on different ways to do that and the reason why that's good and most people don't really get, i guess, the reasoning behind it is it's really great for learning volleys.It's really great for trapping.Settling a ball is another way that you can work on your first touch and ultimately juggling does work on your first touch which is something that you need to have if you want to be a great player and i'm sure a lot of you out there want to eventually play at college and maybe even some professionals as well.
So i want to just give you the tools to help you develop some of those things as well.So again, when you're juggling, you just want to have loose feet.I'm going to do another tutorial on juggling that kind of explains some stuff, maybe some of the little tips and tricks that i just did there, a little bit of flair.But anyway, yeah, just work on juggling.It's a great way to just get some touch on the ball.Secondly, i have four cones here.Again this is on a smaller scale.I'm going to take you.
Through it pretty slow but what you want to do is you want to work on shielding and shielding is great because you're working again, juggling works on the bottom of the ball.Shielding works on more of the top and the sides.Shielding again, if you don't know what shielding is, it's basically you're shielding a defender from the ball by rolling over the top.So again, if you have the ball and you keep the defender here, you're always rolling over.So again, that's what this drill is.So let me kind of take you through this real quick.
And show you what to do.So again, just start on one corner.We're going to be working with both legs here, both left and right.So what you want to do and i will do it slow again, is you just want to roll over and stop with your foot.If you're first starting out, maybe just roll slow and then when you get to this part, is we're going to go forward and we're going to progress.So what you want to do is you want to roll on top of the ball.So again, you can get.
The ball going pretty quick too and then now we're shielding the other way so again, we're rolling over top, keeping it close to the body and then we're going back and back.You're just kind of hopping backwards.Keep the ball in front of you but obviously you want to kind of lean back on this one because you're going to be kind of on your heels.You want to move back fast and then you want to keep going as fast as you can all the way around.You want to do that a couple of minutes and it's going to give you a lot of touches on.
The ball really, really quickly in a lot of different areas as well.So go ahead and do that.Do that i would say a couple of minutes but really i would do it on a bigger scale too and then again you can switch things up just to make it a little bit better.Like i said, if you want to shield and stop, that's a good way too.There are a lot of moves that can go into that.So once you start learning to shield, you're going to learn a whole bunch of different moves that are going to open up for you.
Then the next one is going to be going and doing triangles and triangles, it's a real basic thing.You probably start out learning but again let me scoot up here what it is, is it's just rotating the ball in a triangle and again you're using the top of the ball and the side so now we're getting into different areas as well.So you pull back and again if you're rightfooted let me start here.You're going to pull back across your body to your right and then tap over and then tap up.
So again just pull back over up and then what you eventually want to do is switch sides as well just so you can see it from the side here and again, to take it through another level, you want to keep your head up.You always want to have your eyes above the playing field and kind of keep glancing up.You're not going to just be looking up and then automatically know where the ball is but again, if it's down, kind of look around because there's always going to be defenders on you and the best players in the world know where people.
Are and they also know when they get the ball, they're anticipating what they're going to do with it ahead of time.You should always be thinking, if i get the ball, i'm going to switch the ball to that side of the field because it's open.There's going to be a player that's open running onto it.So again, work that and then another thing that you can do as well with the triangles is do a triangle behind the leg which i didn't do very well there.So again, as you pull.
Back and you go right there which you're going to start learning a whole bunch of moves when you're trying to get out of trouble.So when you start adding all these things, it's going to be a lot easier so again, start out with doing a triangle or two and then when you pull back, just pull back behind your leg and across your body and then grab it.So it's going to be a little bit farther but you just want to regain it there.See and then you can switch sides as well.
So that's another thing that gets you on more of the sides of the ball and again, you want to stay light on your feet because if you're on your heels, your reaction time is a lot slower.So the next one that i want to take you through is just going to be basically touchtouch cone drills which are going to help you get on your feet as well and stick around towards the end of the tutorial.If you're watching this, i have something that's going to help you out a lot so bear.
With me for a second.I will take you through a couple more and then i will help you out a little bit.So again, what you want to do here is you have the cones kind of separated and again, i have them spaced out a little bit tighter together as they get farther and you can do that if you want.But what it is, is basically you're working on your slow touches.So touch, touch, inside, out, inside, out and then you get closer in and so basically you're always going to be.
Working on those quick touches.So if you ever watch messi, he's like the master of this.He basically can get in a jam where he has a bunch of defenders around him because he can wrongfoot the defenders and he can do these quick touches that he's going to wrongfoot a defender and get around him pretty easily.So again, start slow.Just touch.Touch across and then touch outside.Touch across.Touch outside.Touch across and outside.So again, you're going to start working through that and you're going to be going at a pretty good pace.Again, you're just getting a feel for.
The ball, especially if you're a beginner, so maybe don't leave them so tight towards the end.Just keep them spread out.Then i got one more drill for you which it's pretty simple but again this is where you're going to start learning more feinting and so what you want to do is you want to take the ball and start with the right foot and instead you're going to roll to the outside and then across your body and then step on it.So left side is like this and you can start going faster too like that but if you're just.
Starting out, just go across the body and then stop.What this is going to do is this is going to work on moves like the cruyff where if you've seen midfielders or forwards that are in the vicinity, if they're going to shoot a ball and they want to get a defender to step and get some space, that's what they would do is they would fake and they would have the ball here for a shot.So again, we're just working on the basic fundamentals that you need first and then.
You're going to build on that which is what i'm going to teach you in all the youtube tutorials.So again, start out just kind of going across the body real slow and again you're getting a feel for the top of the ball and the side of the ball in this as well.So keep working on that one as well.So again, just to kind of like harp on what i'm teaching you here, is a lot of people go to practice and they think, i want to be a great soccer player, but it's not.
Necessarily going to happen if you just go to practice.You need to know the specific ways to train and there's a specific method that i learned to take my playing from an average player to playing allamerican in high school and in college and then playing professionally as well.So i want to give you kind of the tips and tricks that i learned that you can use as well to really get your skills fasttracked.You can go as quick as possible and really learn a lot.So go ahead and just click the link below this tutorial and check that out now.
