12 Jan The Junior Football Journey
At junior level, we are finding more and more clubs are looking to embrace a ‘development and improvement’ culture however coaches often ask:
“If winning is not the priority, where should our focus be?”
Obviously, we are all competitive by nature (including the players) and, at The Modern Game we understand that as well as anyone however, it is our belief that ‘winning’ in junior football should not be measured by scoreboard and ladder results!
We have developed a document titled the Junior Journey and we have shared it with many junior coaches to help them understand where we believe there focus should be depending on the age group they are coaching. As you will see, winning is a component of the journey but it is not the priority.
Please feel free to contact us if you would like some ideas on how you can take the focus off ‘winning’.
