Successful Ise Lodge Coaches CPD Event
In December, John Reynolds, FA Community Mentor delivered a successful CPD event at KBA, for coaches at Ise Lodge.
The focus of the evening was to provide coaches at the club with some new coaching idea's they could try to implement back with their teams, but it also provided an opportunity for coaches to network and share idea's with each other.
For this particular evening, John Reynolds focused on 3 themes; Running With The Ball (RWTB), Defending 1v1 and Passing & Moving. He delivered 3 short 20 minute drills for each theme, then challenged the coaches in attendance to discuss how they could progress each practice or how they would adapt each drill when working with their players.
Feedback has been successful and the club is hoping to deliver another CPD event in March for coaches of Ise Lodge.
Topics delivered will be based on feedback from coaches, so if you have any particular topic you would like support with, please contact Shaun Waite, Club Development Officer:-
