Player Development

The first link is a montage of clips on defenders and how they can assist with all round play rather than just preventing goals. We find it useful in passing on to a number of youth players, and especially their coaches, who think if they step over the half way line they might get a nose bleed or altitude sickness!

The second video is slightly longer at 8 minutes but is a wonderful piece about a youth team who try as they might can't seem to catch a break. For those of us who are parents or coach younger kids it an excellent reminder of why we coach.
