Introduction

Section A - Applying Theory to Practical ii) Physical Aspects 1) The major coaching points of one named essential skill in the chosen activity. Activity: Football The major coaching points that I will be looking into football are the attacking and defending skills, which are essential to the game. I am first of all going to start with the attacking side of football and what players skills will involve in this area of the game are as follows: ATTACKING . Shooting for goal. . Dribbling.. . Heading the ball. Shooting The great saying here for strikers or any attacking player is if you do not shoot to often enough you will never score. The key issue of an attacking game is being able to score if given the chance; the best way in doing so is to place the ball into the net with great power. The way in which you do this is by pointing the non-striking foot towards the target and draw back the other foot. To then get the greater accuracy use the wide area of your foot, which is in the inner side and is called the instep. ...read more.

Middle

This tackle is normally done down the line, this is because the tackle is from the side with the defending player having to make up ground (getting back) to make the challenge. Timing is all-important with this challenge it is especially important with the consequences of bad timing. This as I have already said can be free kicks or letting your opponent go by you. But even more important would be a tackle from behind and not from the side. As referees nowadays give players a straight booking for this challenge or even a sending off depending on the intensity of the challenge. If however the timing is perfect and you are clever with it, you can force the ball off your opponent's legs and win a throw in for your team. The technique of a slide tackle is firstly to keep your eyes on the ball. As you slide in you must try to keep your body as low as possible and try to make clean contact with the ball. The low body position will make it easier for you to get back off the floor quicker. ...read more.

Conclusion

(black is where the ball goes and the red arrow is player A moving) More accurate passing Accurate passes are an essential. So for maximum accurate passing percentage hit at the 2 spot as shown in the picture. Practice makes perfect so do things like hitting against a barn with a marker on it and stuff like that. � Also you can aim at a small target on a wall or a very small goal from a distance. You should start off with a target of 2 meters by 2 meters from 10 yards. Then after you have mastered this practise you should increase the distance that you aim at, you should then increase the distance by 5 yards after you have mastered each distance until you get to 25 yards. � Next you could try out with a smaller target, make your target at 1.5 metres by 1.5 metres. Like last time start off with a starting distance of 5 yards, this time spend more time before you progress to 10 yards this is because you are aiming at a smaller target. Then you can progress to a further distance by 5 yards to 15 yards. Here is a diagram showing you how this can be set out. Tahamtan Pishgharavol Personal Performance Portfolio ...read more.
