Coaching Tip of the Week

Coaching Tip of the Week!

April 25, 2016
If you coach player in the younger age groups (U9-12) it is a good idea to have your players keep a training journal.  The journal should include all additional personal training outside of team and club events.  The training should also focus on topics that you, as the coach, have determined are the things each specific player needs to improve.  It is a good tool to recommend after you have completed your first player evaluation in the fall.  It can be a simple notebook the players write to show what they have done.  The entries should include, date, amount of time, location and topic.  It can also include the names of other ASA players they may have trained with.  The coach should check them periodically to see who is actually doing the extra work.  Players that are diligent about this extra work will show technical improvement.  You can use this information in your pre-tryout evaluation conversations too.
