My approach to coaching is simple, how can I teach a player the necessary individual technique and skills to flourish in games and a team setting.
I am motivated by players who want to improve and are willing to put in extra time dedicated to improving their individual technique.
I'm of the belief that the entire game of football can be broken down into individual skills, technique and fine motor control. If you look at the top athletes in any sport, their technical ability and game intelligence will be greater than that of their competitors. Teaching young and developing players skill based technique should be the main priority for any coach within Australia.
