Second training with this group and I already see so much progression. Progression more in the way they approach the exercise than actually the technique. These are all good players, but not every player has the mentality of having full attention in all exercises, especially during warm ups and during juggling. Anyway, you can see how determinate they are. This was a practice of 50 players, and there is no fooling around. Coaches, if you want your players to take serious every activity, why not explain the importance of that activity for their performance? Or more important, set your standard higher! This was not a Rec practice so I won't treat my players as a rec player. I keep telling this to my girls: they sacrifice way too much for this sport, and it's clear they want to be a better player, otherwise they wouldn't come to practice. So make it fun! Make it harder! Make it challenging! Make it worth it! - after every pass, one push up. If you mess up in the juggling you do 2 push-ups. Team work.
