A license to skill

September 14th, 2020
It’s been a not infrequent observation in many codes that some players have been working their way into senior grade without a good command of core skills.
 
Football is leading the way to address that – and a special clinic on Sunday at Coffs Harbour is a case in point.
 
The Skill Training Certificate is aimed at people coaching or intending to coach teams aimed from Under 9s to 12s.
 
Northern NSW Football Coach Development Officer Jarrad Denham said the training is focussed on the “skill acquisition phase”, and is designed to foster player creativity.
 
“Those foundation skills are the most important building block and it’s keyed at the golden age of motor learning,” he said.
 
Four bread and butter components will be tackled:
* One v One
* Striking
* Running with the ball, and;
* First touch.
 
“We’ll be giving the ideas to coaches on the best way to bring those (core skills) to life,” Jarrad said.
 
“We want to give them an environment which will give lead to creative players in the future.”
 
A similar course was held in March, while Sunday’s session will specifically cater for the North Coast, and be of great value for those preparing to coach in 2021.
