Youth Module 3 Session

Hi all,
I have finally got round to putting these sessions together online, well I have started anyway. I have been rather confused with what format I should follow with my sessions – so I tried from what I gained from the the Module 3, and from reading the book and seeking advice of course put something together that will help me going forwards.

I was searching long and hard for a template, and finally got sent one which was a great help to me! After spending around 2 hours writing this up, I hope this is okay.

Thierry Henry

20120822-225634.jpg

As a coach, there are many moments when you feel proud and honoured to have the position that you have got. I think the day and moment I met Thierry Henry and had a brief conversation with him has to be one of the best experiences yet. Having been working in NJ, with TSF Academy – I was made aware that the NY Redbulls had been training at Montclaire State University… On my second visit to watch them train, the man himself was at the training session – and I couldn’t say a word. I was fortunate enough to get a chance to speak to him, get a photo and also a signed shirt from him. A true great, and when he winked as he walked away with that va va voom on his face… That is something I will never forget! Watch a great documentary, on one of the modern greats.

The Right Feedback

The Right Feedback:
Self-Awareness: Continually, even from a young age, children are compared to others based on their ability. If a coach continually compares players based on their ability, it can lead to children feeling awkward and uncomfortable in training. Therefore, equality is key to ensure this situation doesn’t arise.

Self-Esteem: Children at all ages are very vulnerable. A negative comment, or the slightest remark, can affect the child’s self-esteem. Therefore, ensure that all comments are positive, and recognise what the child is doing well.

Humiliation: Humiliating a child can be from criticizing them in front of their friends, or making fun of them. This could lead to them feeling awkward, uncomfortable and embarrassed – would you turn up to a session, feeling like this?

Effective Learning: Some coaches tell children they are being critical to improve them, but often this leads to them feeling embarrassed, awkward and can affect their confidence. Therefore, ensure you create a fun environment – and let children learn from their own mistakes, and support that by asking questions like; what could you have done differently?

Kids are not Adults: No matter on your previous experiences, children react very differently to adults – as not everything is based on winning and the performance. If coaches choose to ignore the winning factor, often this will lead to an increase of development, and learning. It is your responsibility, alongside the parent – to minimalize the pressure a player faces.

Coaches Motivation: Your motivation may be different to the children, for example: you may want to win, and the children may just want to play for fun – which is so often the case. Often these clash, therefore – ensure your motivation, is the same as the children – to make the training as effective as possible. If not, this could lead to low motivation levels to train etc.

Praising Effort: Always appreciate the child’s effort in training, if they are trying hard – then compliment them. This will have a much more positive effect than being critical. If a child isn’t trying, then once again – don’t be critical. It is your challenge as a coach, to find methods to motivate the child to put effort in.

Being Positive: If a player’s performance is good, praise it. If it isn’t, don’t make a comment – and compliment them on the effort they have put in. More often than not, you can find something positive about the session/game etc. Make sure you recognise if a player is improving, compliment them – as this could lead to motivation to continuing in learning and developing new skills.
