Please be aware that these in-service workshops are coming up over the next few weeks. The workshops are for coaches who want to further develop their coaching skills and knowledge to provide high quality coaching sessions for their clubs.

There are two key themes running throughout each workshop;

1. Developing Creative Football Players
2. Using Futsal as a tool to develop young players

Why Develop Creative Players?

Over the years Scottish football has been synonymous with exciting and creative players who get fans on the edge of their seats. Players developed naturally in a street environment which has now unfortunately been lost and as a result young players now spend less time practicing individual skills which help creative ability.

This workshop is designed to help encourage coaches to develop creative aspects of players and create more technically able performers. Within the game at whatever age and ability level, the 1v1 situation is central to a player’s development. To enable players to master these 1v1 situations from an attacking perspective, particular focus should be placed on individual technique training, because technical skill forms the foundation for tactical play.

By attending this workshop and encouraging young players to be more responsible for practicing key skills you will be able to develop more complete and technical players.
