At home training - Technical/Skills Resources

Below are training ideas for coaches to utilize with their teams for at-home based development.  These can be used by assigning at-home assignments or to stimulate conversations with your teams in an individual or group setting.

SOCCER IQ JOURNALS

SoccerIQ is a company that uses visual scenario concepts to help your players engage in thoughtful discussion-based learning. Potentially enhancing their cognitive understanding & decision making within game-relative situations. We encourage coaches to allow players to discuss these scenario themes in plenty of detail. Giving the players the tools to share their ideas and reasoning of what they see can be an insightful part of their cognitive development.

Using the game scenario link below, ask players on your team to analyze a specific scenario and fill in the journal with detail.  These can be used as simple homework assignments or a way to stimulate conversations about the game with your team.

GAME & PLAYER ANALYSIS
In order for players to have a better understanding of the game, it's important for them to watch the game and analyze it themselves.  Use the sheets below in order for players to view the game in a deeper sense.  Players can use the sheets to analyze the overall game or a specific player.  Questions can be changed to fit the age group you work with.  (Contact DOC if you have different questions you'd like)

  2. 5 workout days per week: Choose a ’strength’ workout and a ‘conditioning’ workout and perform them in that order 3 non-consecutive days per week. On the alternate days, execute a ’speed and plyo’ workout.
