Developing Skilful Players

Developing Skilful Players Workshops

Over the weekend of 13/14th April, we're delivering the Developing Skilful Players Workshops in Reading & Milton Keynes.

The workshops will take a look into how we can help develop skilful behaviour within our players, what it looks like across the 4 corners, what practices might help and how we can shape the practice to encourage more exploration of skilful solutions.

 The workshops will also showcase a number of practices, delivered by our Coach Development Officers, for you to consider. They will highlight how we can apply a range of constraints that will present new problems for our players to overcome, they will ask you to observe and consider how the 4 corners interconnect and influence how players adapt to new situations.

Questions this workshop will aim to answer:

- What is a skilful player?
- How can we, as coaches, support the development of skilful players?
- What does ‘skilful’ look like across the FA 4 corners?

What can coaches expect to take away?

• Some example practices that they could use to support them with this topic.
• An understanding of how constraints can encourage the player to develop skilful solutions
• Knowledge of how the 4 Corners connect to encourage skilful play

Are there any tasks to complete ahead of the event?

Please watch the 2-minute pre video and consider what a ‘skilful’ player looks like to you.
