Prepare to Coach

Published: October 15, 2018


Prepare to Coach is a series of three workshops  developed by WSP which aim to progressively increase coaches confidence and skills through observing and taking part in coaching sessions. The workshops also cover the four key areas needed for player development; developing core skills off both sides, communication, movement on and off the ball and developing decision makers.

The practical workshops gave coaches the opportunity to receive constructive feedback on their own coaching delivery. Participants also receive a Coaching
Booklet, DVD and planning, observation, evaluation and match day observation templates.

The three workshops in the series are:

PERSONAL COACHING SKILLS:
This workshop is a mixture of practical and theory. Coaches receive information on effective planning and evaluation skills and have the opportunity to get feedback on their own coaching skills from the course tutors.

WARM UP/COOL DOWN/STRETCHING:
This workshop includes activities and games that can be used as part of an effective warm up and cool down. Coaches will also learn the importance of dynamic stretches and how to perform  these correctly.

GAMES FOR UNDERSTANDING:
This workshop covers how coaches can get the most out of a game situation. This session specifically focuses on adapting generic games to develop decision makers. A number of practical games that can be used in any coaching session will be demonstrated.
