I’m posting this bulletin for your kids if they would like to practice some fundamentals at home such as the below. If I see that they are doing all of the below at a level where I expect them all to be at we can focus our team practices on scrimmages and play in game. I don’t want to waste a lot of our time on these below items (unless I have to) because it takes away the little time that we have together for practice. Instead I’d like to focus on at our team practice getting open in space, finding the open man and making a pass to him, making runs, anticipating, making the correct passes and not just a pass, marking players, playing defense, free kicks, corners kicks, etc. These items below all the players need to get better at if we want to continue to grow. Like anything the more practice (at 100% effort) the faster it will come. Practice like you'd play a world cup final. I always tell the kids how you practice and warm up is how you'll play in a game. As you can see in the game yesterday, we get to the other team’s box (though I’d like to see more passing to get there) and have a hard time scoring. If we could finish, we would be winning by a lot more I’m convinced. Not that I want to embarrass the other team, but I like to see our kids hard work rewarded with a goal once in a while. Either we don’t strike the ball correctly to get it in the goal, or we dribble too far ahead of ourselves or a pass is not in the correct location so the teammate can finish. Any questions let me know. See you later.
ps please don’t practice in the house :). And this is not mandatory just some extra help.
Also, I’m working on items for the goalies
Any questions let me know. See you later
