YOGA BALL NOUGHTS AND CROSSES - FUN GAME

Here is a little noughts and crosses relay game we did at the start of the session! This was so much fun, boys loved it! So much energy and excitement!! So, yellows vs reds. First to complete a horizontal, vertical or diagonal line wins. If you get hit by those balls you BURN, gotta go back to the line, EXIT the grid before the next one joins in.

#fungame #noughtsandcrosses #relay

[10/31/20]   Little funnel game working on our ability to take the man on or combine to enter the box! Really important that we develop these sort of players. Brave, determined and capable of doing so!!

#competitivezone #daretogothedistance #boxentries #determination

[10/31/20]   Here is a little game in small spaces, 2v2 with occassional recovery runs. First to 10 points wins. Lots of repetitions and decision making! Boys did well and kept the intensity at high levels!

AWARENESS - BODY MANIPULATION

AWARENESS - BODY MANIPULATION | Here is a little fun game we did yesterday with this bunch of 8 year olds, Portsmouth academy players. Gotta go round pick up the tennis balls and run back out again for 1 point. Don't get hit by the balls! Lift and turn the head, be aware of the surrounding threats. Can we react to those threats, manipulate our body, use feints, change of pace and direction to get past those threats?

First to score 5 points wins. Some serious fun this game 🤣🤣🤣🤣

Offensive scenarios working on ABC, Attitude, Bravery & Confidence.

Some of the highlights from Competitive Zone's Saturday session focusing on ABC, Attitude, Bravery and Confidence. Couldn't be happier with the outcome!

John 'Yogi' Hughes testimonial...

It was good having John Yogi Hughes along at Hutchison Vale's camp in collaboration with Competitive Zone during February's 'Street soccer camp'. Great man, approachable and humble!! Had a successful professional playing career playing for the likes of Swansea, Celtic and Hibernian , then a manager at Livingston , Hibernian and a Scottish cup champion with Inverness in 2014! Woud like to thank him for accepting the invitation to pop round and check out the camp!

By all means, great having him on board to watch and share his knowledge as well as offer advice!

Wee video I prepared with his testimonial.

[02/27/19]   Excited to be releasing this 'Totally technical' promo video!

This 'Totally technical' programme to be delivered Easter time in Edinburgh for kids 13-16 .This is a more advanced programme for more progressive players than the kids camp delivered for players under the age of 13.Themes will comprise, playing out from the back, progressing through the zones, creating and combining to get a finish away in the final third, combining in the 2nd third to release runs to get in behind, defending deep to counter attack and pressing from the front.

All sessions will be delivered using scenario games that will encourage the players to make decisions under mental pressure, also developing skills such as dealing with pressure according to the scenario given, remaining composed when it really matters, dealing with anxiety in difficult game situations, dealing with adversity during a particular scenario and also developing tactical & game management skills.

Am very excited and cannot wait to get this one underway ⚽️❤️

Practice instruction and skill acquisition in soccer Challenging tradition.pdf

An academic piece of work with academic research on various aspects of motor skill acquisition in soccer. I extracted the research through a library and I am making it available for people to read to educate themselves on certain aspects. Click and download the paper through the google drive link!
An interesting piece of academic work on certain myths in sports coaching. Is demonstration effective? Does it really enhance learning, does it hinder it? Is Augmented feedback beneficial or not? what kind of feedback enhances motor skill learning the most? Also, Blocked (unopposed) Vs Random (opposed) practices explained and their effect in development of motor skills. And many more! Have a read...
