Football - coaching points.

Extracts from this document...


FOOTBALL SHORT PASSING Coaching Points 1. Place non-kicking foot next to ball about 8-10 inches away from the ball. 2. Lean forward in order to get head and weight of body over the ball. 3. Look up to see where about on the pitch team-mates, opponents, and the object team-mate are situated. 4. Strike through the centre of the ball with the instep (inside) of the foot, judging the pace and accuracy accordingly. To teach this skill, I think that using the Whole Part Whole practice method would be the easiest way for the performer to understand and carry out the skill. This is because passing is a complex skill, and if one section of the skill is performed wrong, the whole skill can, and will, be affected. The section that is being performed wrong will then be taken out of the whole skill, practised, then placed back into the whole skill in order for the skills continuity to remain. ...read more.


3. Look to see where opponents, team-mates, and object team-mate are on the pitch. 4. Strike through the bottom of the ball with the foot in a horizontal position, using the laces of the boot (top of foot) judging the pace and accuracy accordingly To teach this skill, I think that using the Progressive Part practice method would bring out the best results from the performer. I think this because long passing is much more complex than short passing; there is a lot more to think about and to execute. For example, the distance of the pass is further, and the height of the pass needs to be increased. I would also use this method because a long pass can be very aesthetically pleasing, thus bringing confidence to the performer when performed correctly - confidence is the number one motivator. The advantage of this method is that as each part is performed well, the performer will become more confident with each successful attempt. ...read more.


The advantages of this method are that it is not time consuming. The performer is able to pick up the feel of the skill (kinesthesis) and the better the kinesthesis, the better the skill will be performed. In addition, to transfer this skill into a game situation would be easy if this method of practice was used, as it is how it would happen in a real situation. The disadvantages of using this method are that if the performer is not advanced enough, they may find it difficult, or may find that too much information needs to be processed. Also, if one section of the skill is being performed wrong or badly, it cannot be removed from the whole skill, practised, then placed back into the whole skill. If the performer was finding that the skill was becoming easier than when first practised, environmental conditions can be altered. For example, a number of opponents might be placed into the situation in order to increase the difficulty of the skill. METHODS OF COACHING GARY MORTON 1 D10 ...read more.
