Seeing is believing when it comes to skills

dc1Showing your players how to do techniques is a lot easier for them to understand than if you tell them how to do it. Often coaches will tell players what to do then get hot and bothered when the players are not doing it right.

When it comes to shielding the ball it is far easier for you to show the position of a player’s feet and body rather than spending a lot of time explaining what the players must do.

By way of example, watch this clip of Roy Keane showing young players how to shield the ball. Obviously it helps if you’ve played the game, but you can always get out into the garden after work and try it yourself before you do it in front of the players.
