20 Jul Are you coaching in junior finals?
The Modern Game would like to wish all the junior coaches (and players) the best of luck for the upcoming 2011 junior finals series.
While it is an exciting time for all involved and the focus can easily turn to scoreboard results and winning (which is understandable), please don’t miss the opportunity to teach and educate your players in these games.
Many players will be playing their first final, some will be nervous, some anxious and in some cases they will need the coach to re-assure them that the expectations on them are no greater.
There will be many teaching points on and off the field in the next few weeks – don’t miss them and make sure your players come away better for the experience and more capable should they be required to play in a higher grade/division next year.
