IT FUN Picture yourself at the grocery
your the last person in a 12 person line. Any
fun? Same thing for the kids. Avoid using long lines
in your drills or activities.
Another good practice tip is not to play elimination games in which a player sits if he/she
loses. Chances are good that if he lost, he
needs to practice and not be sitting.
#2 HAVE A PLAN Don't be stumbling for
ideas with 30 eyes looking at you. You will look
more professional. Fold it in half and tuck it
in on the side of your waistband for quick
access to it. After practice, use it to write
what worked good and what didn't. Keep
them as records so you know what and when you
Practice Plan also Sample
#3 ARRIVE EARLY. Have everything laid
out for two or three activities. No down time in
between drills. No time for kids to get into
-Have an odd number of players. Use the
player as a target player (a player that plays
on both teams). This will give you numbers up on
either offense or defense. This can be useful to
show the team success in a certain area. Or use
extra player as "assistant coach" to keep
the player busy.
-Last player to practice is on "cone
duty". "Cone duty" is picking up all the
cones and gear at the end of practice. The player wont be late too often.
-Keep it simple. Don't use big fancy
words. Simple is Better.
-Fake it. If you had a rough day at work
and you are not enthusiastic about being at
practice then you have to fake it. -If a drill or activity isn't working,
don't be afraid to change the drill or even stop it all
