4 steps to improve the efficiency of the training process of the football team
The profession of a coach is multifunctional, if we speak in simple language, a coach, and especially a child, should be for his students not only a coach, but also a friend and a parent.
Equally important is the coach’s understanding of athletes. It involves the ability of the coach to penetrate into the inner world of students, to find the right form of treatment to them. The coach’s misunderstanding of the students leads to an aggravated negative relationship between them. Complicated relationship because of the disrespect of the personality of student preconceptions of a coach about the student, insufficient attention to him and his needs, unevenness and roughness of teachers, formality of tone, a raised intonation in the conversation, the variability in the mood of the trainer, so the first step is attention.
Step 1. Attention
Take psychology and look as outwardly manifested attention deficit in the child, and make a conclusion how attention improves the health of each young athlete and team in particular.
The main sign of attention deficit is that the child is trying to get or win the attention of adults, in the specific case of the coach. And if the child does not receive positive attention in the form of a smile, hug, dialogue – he does not stop his actions, begins to violate discipline, thereby inhibiting the training process, because any attention becomes significant, including negative. It is worth noting that when a child begins to fight for the attention of the teacher, the teacher has a feeling of irritation.
Consider the situation, your wards held a match, after the match there is a discussion of the game, your task is not to deprive anyone of attention. It is better to appeal to everyone, no matter with a claim or praise, the main attention. During the training process, it is also necessary to remember about the attention of your students, but do not focus on a particular person, try to pay attention to each equally, to the extent possible.
Step 2. Interest
Interest-positively colored emotional process associated with the need to learn something new about the object of interest, increased attention to it. That is why it is so important to arouse the interest of athletes for faster assimilation of the program. Everyone should know about it, because a person with great pleasure does what he is interested in.
Give your students a more diverse training program, a variety of outdoor games, maybe add quizzes, for the intellectual development of the child, add to the program a variety of exercises in their structure. Also of no small interest is the competitive activity, contest. Spend more mini tournaments and competitions during the main or final part of training.
The point system will also arouse interest within the team, thereby creating a continuous competitive activity within the team, which contributes to the effectiveness of the training process.
Step 3. Morale
Morale – the moral and psychological state of the athlete, which is generated at the sensory level of the human psyche in interaction with objective reality and awareness of personal qualities, and through the system of psychological protection actively affects mental health. So not worth it after bad games to blame players for a bad game, and during subsequent workouts to be reminded of that.
The right decision will be, during the first training session after the match, to give some fun mobile game to cheer up the players, or to spend a day of rest, arrange a bike ride, a theoretical lesson with viewing any video material, the main thing to distract the attention of players from the recent defeat.
Only after such moral unloading, to start training process and studying of the mistakes made in the last match.
Step 4. Common cause
To improve the relationship with the students, spend time with them not only on the field. Going to the cinema, Saturday work, attending various events, including sports, will help you to improve communication and mutual understanding with the team. A big plus will be the involvement of parents in these activities. During the time that you spend with the wards, do not forget about what was said at the beginning of the article, try to pay attention to all equally.
