This week's session works on communication skills


The Player Development department continues to put together a practice for coaches to use with their players across the province.

Each week will focus on one of the three LTPD development stages at the Grassroots level, which includes Active Start, FUNdamentals, and Learn to Train.

In this week's session, the Player Development department has focused on Learn to Train and this session is designed to improve players receiving and communication skills.

Players are continually challenged communicate with their team mates as the ball is travelling towards them.

The players are asked to meet this challenge while working on their physical literacy, playing in a 4v4 small sided game re-creating Borussia Dortmund’s Multi Million Dollar ‘Footbonaut’ machine and then bringing it all together in a small sided game.
