Coaches Colleague greatly accepts the role that youth players have within the overall sport of football. It is their involvement and enjoyment that greatly contributes to it being the most widely undertaken sport across the globe. It is the constant involvement of young players at grassroots that continually provides adult teams of all ages with a consistent flow of emerging talent.
Create Football Training Exercises that...
... Promote involvement and encouragement.
Coaches need to appreciate the influence they have on young players during matches and football training exercises, both positive and negative. If the coach can provide the best education possible then the player is equipped with all the knowledge and information they require to fulfil their full potential. However if a coach affects a player negatively then their involvement within the sport altogether may cease from that moment on. Imagine how different things would be for your club, your team or yourself, if the winning goal scorer of last season's all important game, your sides player of the year or even yourself were put off of football when they were a young player due to the actions or attitude of a coach. Therefore Coaches Colleague looks to educate coaches on youth football to ensure all their players get as much from their involvement as possible.
There is also another aspect of youth football that Coaches Colleague consider to be extremely important and one that does not receive the kind of coverage deemed appropriate, that is Child Protection. With a whole section dedicated to this area, Coaches Colleague genuinely appreciate how significant an element of youth football this topic is - not just in ensuring player safety but also to prevent the coaching staff from placing themselves in 'at risk' situations during both matches and football training days.
