With the season fast approaching we constantly must remind ourselves that excellence on the park is dependent on so many items such as:

• Hydration
• Nutrition
• Sleep
• Recovery
• Good communication

Among the many items coaches need to be aware of is post game communications. Club Youth TD Gerard Carey explains: 

"During season 2018 you will observe youth coaches not giving teams detailed, post-match lectures.
Given the emotions of the day, and the significant amount of research around this subject, we will reserve
our assessments and evaluations until the first training session post game.
This allows the staff to remove a significant amount of possible or probable emotion from our communication.

We suggest that parents do the same so that, no matter the result there is not a great focus on perceived negatives immediately after the game."

 

For a player - and for any human being - there is nothing better than hearing ‘well done.’
'Those are the two best words ever invented in sports. You don’t need to use superlatives.
Sir Alex Ferguson
