Knowledge and technical understanding is only one part of being an effective coach. The ability to communicate messages well to players is perhaps is even more important.
What a coach says and how they say it is both an art and a science. There is much evidence that we can draw upon as coaches that can inform and shape our communications practice.
In this course, our Coach Development Mentor Sarah McQuade and Global Coaching Mentor Ben Garner look at different methods of communicating with football players, and within a football environment, and how that will vary in different situations.
Communicating is vital for a football coach, being as effective as possible when sharing information will help you become a better and more well-rounded coach. This course will help you develop those skills and have positive impact on your players and your team’s success.
