You can then adapt them to suit your desired outcomes and try them out with your team.

These session plans come from our online Principles of Play coaching CPD course, which is currently available for HALF-PRICE on the MiMentor Platform. Or, you can sign-up for a FREE 7-day trial subscription and access this and ALL our coach education courses and content.

The Principles of Play course will give you a greater understanding of both the attacking and defensive principles. Our expert course tutor defines each one in isolation and uses a variety of methods to bring them to life.

There’s also a helpful case study on how one Premier League side uses the principles of play to develop their playing philosophy.
