kids, teenagers, adults
I have previously played 6, 8 and 10 Midfielder. However, what am I going to provide you are skills essential for all positions. In modern soccer, all positions include goalkeeper will need a certain levels of ball control skills.
More About Me
I have been coaching for 4 years in Australia. Prior to coming to Australia, I coached in Japan for 4 years as well. I coached for fotboltec academy in Sydney for kids aged 5-12. I have been coaching Miniroos teams at Port Melbourne Sharks for the past two years.
I have been playing in the NPL environment for 4 years in both Sydney and Melbourne.
In 2017 I played in the quarter final round of the FFA Cup.
I was Player of the Year at Port Melbourne Sharks in 2018 and won the Golden Boot at Port Melbourne Sharks in 2019.
I strongly recommended small group sessions of 3 or 4. This will allow a more game-like situation where players can learn. Sessions include 1v1, 2v1 and 2v2 training, which require developing scanning and decision making skills. Focus on basic skills such as passing, ball control, dribbling and agility along with scanning and decision making. I believe basic skills and decision making cannot be separated; I have seen many very technically skilled players who do not perform well in matches because they lack adequate decision making experience.
My sessions are based on my years of experience playing football professionally and coaching players of all skill levels aged 5-18.
I am happy to coach players indivually, however I encourage you to have a small group of 3 or 4 for a more true-to-game training experience. Train with your teammates and improve together. In my experience the friendly competition of small group sessions is a strong motivator for improvement.
