Coaches will not need any equipment for Training by Grade sessions. We will use Pugg nets and the WYSA bank of cones and pennies for all sessions. Coaches/Players will be expected to collect the equipment and bring to the field house at the end of each session.
Each Coach has been allocated at least 1/4 of a 7v7 field.
Coaches should allow at least 20minutes for their team to scrimmage at the end of each session. Dependent upon numbers, coaches should play 4v4 across ½ of a 6v6 field. Alternatively coaches can choose to use the pugg nets and finish with a four goal game.
Each coach should have a printed copy of the session plan with them at each session to reference. Coaches will run through the session plan with their own team.
Coaching Philosophy – No Laps, No Lines, No Lectures
Exercise, in any form should not be used as a punishment. Players will be asked to sit out for a short period for any misbehavior. Wherever possible all players should be involved in an activity. Lines should be kept to a maximum of 4, when there is 2 coaches WYSA recommends setting up another area for the activity, so players do not waste time sitting out. (Don’t overload the players with information)
