"I searched through The Coaching Manual to find sessions. I decided I wanted to focus on passing - for me that's the core, passing and ball skills - I looked through the content and the sessions on TCM, there are loads there. I found some that were simple enough for the players who had never actually done anything technical like that before, and then I just cut and pasted them using the Session Plan tool. I then shared it with the other coaches, we came down to the training pitch, and followed it.
"The videos on The Coaching Manual are really useful. They explain what they're going to do, then the camera shows the session - you listen to what the coach is saying, when they choose to step in, then they come back and give an overview of what they did and why. For me, as a brand new coach, that is invaluable."
