I think we all have experienced the frustration of running a session on a particular topic where the players performed well and appeared to understand the points we were making but then you don’t see any of those ideas being used in the next game.
This week I talk about this issue with Bob Warming, Head Men’s Soccer Coach at Penn State University. This is the second time Bob has been on the podcast. If you haven’t listened to our discussion in Episode #8 on The Triangle Training Method, I would encourage you to go back and listen because Bob shares why he developed this training method and how it can help your players.
In this episode Bob and I talk about how coaches can ensure a greater transfer of training between what they do in practice and the games on the weekend.
Bob talks about what coaches shouldn’t do in their training session, the coaching points that he repeats time and again with his own players, the REAL purpose of passing and possession, as well as his three key factors to achieve the greatest transfer of training possible for your players.
I will have a complete transcript of the discussion in the printable show notes that will be posted shortly.
