Preparing your training ahead of time is important to optimize its duration and allow players to get the most out of it on the field.
Many minutes of training are wasted picking up cones, balls, etc. and then putting them back for the next exercise.
It is important to make the exercise understandable in the field to help the players understand the elements being worked on and not to focus them on how the exercise works.
The explanation of an exercise is an important point above all for the players. It should include several parts such as the link with the match, the explanation, and the example. The explanation should be short and precise to allow the players to quickly get started with the exercise.
It is important to keep a similar structure for all the training sessions of the season. At Gofox we prefer a simple structure composed of a warm-up, the training body (several exercises), and an end of training (endgame).
It is important for trainers to be exemplary role models for the players in their clubs. To do so, we have compiled a list of 10 golden rules to becoming a dedicated trainer!
