Overview of the event
“Can we play a match”
One of the most common phrases we hear when working with enthusiastic players who love the game. How do we as coaches, supporters and volunteers help keep that life-long love for the game and provide the best possible experiences we can when it comes to a match day?

In this workshop, we will aim to explore some of the challenges faced by coaches on a match day but also, the opportunities that it presents in terms of the following key aspects:

  • Linking training to a match day.
  • Supporting the learning and enjoyment of the players.
  • How to plan, deliver and reflect effectively in relation to match day.

We will explore these areas through practical delivery and discussion to help you make the most of the favourite part of the week and give you some food for thought to support you throughout the season, with some hints, tips and ideas for you to take away and try out with your own players.
