The actual skill of coaching involves combining a knowledge base of the four components of soccer, as well as, the ability to observe and stop an activity at the appropriate time and to make appropriate and concise coaching points, and then restart the activity. This is much more difficult than the actual creation of the practice plan. Regardless of whether you are or are not a member of ASET, we would like to assist all coaches in their ability to improve how they coach and what they coach.
–ASET Directors will function as a mentor for a predetermined period of time. This will include working with the mentored coach in the delivery of a training session or the analysis of a league or tournament game. It may also include meetings to discuss various technical or tactical problem areas and together determining the best solution given your player’s ability level or team formation. As mentors, we will work with each coach to help him or her gain a deeper insight into developing the coaching eye. As a result, the coach will be better equipped to evaluate and assess a team’s strengths and weaknesses to better meet their team’s needs.
–ASET Directors will implement a Continuing Education Program tailored to a particular club or a specific team within a club. Through various events such as practical field sessions or classroom lectures, coaches will be provided with information for working with their team.
In order to further discuss the options listed above or other coaching development opportunities you may have in mind, please contact us via email and together we will determine how to best meet the needs of not only you as a coach but also your players.
