Coaching Tip of the Week

Coaching Tip of the Week!

November 10, 2015
Tournaments are an opportunity for teams to evaluate players and see which athletes can compete under difficult circumstances. No other level of the game forces soccer players to play multiple games in a day. As a coach, you need to have a plan in place on how you will use your players. It's important to understand the physical demands on the kids and find moments in the game to get them some rest while also not putting the team in a situation they can't handle. Sometimes the change can happen on the field with the kids that are playing too. Move a player forward to ease their workload or back to give them a short break depending on what is happening in the game. Make sure your subs know their work rate during the time they are playing is critical to team success too.

Last, the game durations are usually shorter than normal games so scoring first is important. Take an aggressive approach and try to get the first goal. Chasing games in tournament play is difficult. Good luck in your post season Tournaments!!
