No doubt you have heard the words ‘Emotional Intelligence’ being used within the sports coaching context over and over again.
Ask yourself, and be honest, how clear are you on what these words mean and whose Emotional Intelligence we are referring to? Yours as the coach? Your coaching staff and colleagues? Or the participants, players and athletes you coach?
In this course, we look at the underpinning science behind decision-making and help coaches understand how they can develop players to make better choices on the football pitch. The course boasts multiple video and coaching session designs that can be adapted and utilised within your coaching sessions.
This sports psychology course will explore the adolescent years of players, helping to develop a greater awareness and understanding of the developmental changes occurring during this period and provide some key considerations for coaches, support staff and parents.
Our expert mentors shared their insights and experiences and answered a whole host of questions from the many coaches who joined us live on the webinar. It was a valuable and interesting session for those who wanted to develop their coaching EI but also to support the development of their players.
This course will give you a good understanding of both the attacking and defensive principles of play. We define each principle in isolation and use a variety of methods to bring each principle to life. We also provide a useful case study on how Leicester and Brendan Rogers use the principles of play to develop their playing philosophy.
This course is for coaches who want to develop their tactical knowledge and understanding of the game and to support in developing a playing identity/philosophy.
This course will cover:
The attacking and defensive principles of play
An example of how Leicester City use the principles of play to form a strategy
A chance to reflect and share your team's philosophy and principles with our expert mentor.
We hope you enjoy the course.
The course, which begins on the 8th of June, will be led by Sarah McQuade, our Coach Development Mentor with over 20 years of experience working in sports coach education. It will run on a limited cohort basis over an 8-week period, comprising live and recorded webinars, online learning, forums, discussions and course assessment and diploma certification endorsed by United Soccer Coaches.
