Introduction

Action planning. Goals. In order for my goals to be successful they first of all have to be clear, realistic and achievable. It would be pointless if I set myself a goal or target that was impossible to obtain. My weaknesses are tackling, defending, availability, endurance and strength. I must be precise when planning how I will achieve my goals in the individual areas and so must have specific targets upon which I will base my training. My targets for improving my tackling are; ideally, I would like to successfully complete and win around 70-75% of my tackles in order for my tackling goals to be achieved. The second area that I wish to improve through my action planning is my defending abilities. I feel that this is larger skill to improve, as there are many different aspects to defending well. Defending is closely related to tackling, as I will obviously need to be able to regain possession of the ball before my team can attack i.e. if my team does not have the ball, we are defending, no matter what our position is on the pitch. I will have to try and cut short the advance of the opposition on a more regular basis if my defending skills are to be improved. For example, I may aim to prevent the opposition getting into the eighteen-yard box more often in each half of the game, I can also use a plan to reduce the number of times the opposition enter the eighteen-yard box every two or three matches. ...read more.

Improvements to my defending could be made by also by performing the above drills used for tackling. I could also work with the goalkeeper and the rest of the defenders in order to work out strategies or game plans that may raise the likelihood of us stopping an opposition's attack. We could also change our positions in defence situations, i.e. if I played right back then maybe I could try swapping with the left back or the centre. This would vary the angles and would allow me to see what different situations are like in different positions. To achieve my goal for availability I will probably have to work with the rest of my team and formulate a system by which we all know who is who during a match, i.e. having calls if I am in a potential goal scoring position or simply if I am unmarked and available for a pass. Another method of achieving my goal is to watch more football matches. This will enable me to observe how professional players act when in different areas of the pitch or when marked for example. Improving my availability would be of great benefit not only for myself, but, for my team, as I should be able to make myself more available and thus give my team more of a chance of scoring. My method for achieving a higher level of endurance is to use continuous training, i.e. running over large distances or on circuits for a continuous period of time established before hand. ...read more.

Conclusion

However, this is only for local muscular endurance and strength but is an extra method of finding how different muscle groups are improving. My muscular strength can be assessed in many ways as well. To begin with there is the hand grip dynamometer. This piece of equipment tests grip strength, which is not directly related to football but is one way of testing if there is any improvement in muscular strength. The only other way to see if my muscular strength has improved is to be evaluated by a coach in a game, i.e. see if I keep my ground more during a match etc. Evaluation of action plan. I believe that my action plan is one that will benefit my game if applied well and used to its full effect. Furthermore, I can also say that more attention can be paid to areas if they are not improving as mush as others quite easily as my method of achieving my goals and targets is quite flexible. Additionally, I can say that my goals are realistic and are achievable, because they are not set too high and are within obtainable reach of my capabilities. My timescales are also realistic. I feel I have an adequate amount of time and that my goals can be achieved in the set time periods. I can also say that my record of implementation of the action plan is suitable and is easy to follow. I have set it out in such a way that minimises tedium and if I follow it correctly reversibility should not cause concern. All in all, I feel that my action plan is a success and benefits the improvements that need to be made. 5 ...read more.
