Positioning when coaching

  • Coach "outside in" - this means you should move around the coaching area looking inwards. In this way, you never have your back towards the players and yet you will be able to move around and see all the players performing in the grids/area
  • Always stand so that you can see the practice from the best angle. For example, if you are coaching players to run straight, make sure you stand end on and not sideways
  • Make sure that,, if it is sunny, you face the sun - otherwise players will be squinting and not able to see you clearly
