Hi coaches, hopefully you are engaging with this forum having listened to and enjoyed episode 1 of our DNA Insights podcasts. With the release today of the second episode I want to pose a couple of questions to get the discussion going. Here goes:
- The FA is really going after the development of more skilful players. The podcast supports this approach so what else would coaches need to get them on board with this very important initiative?
- What might the biggest barriers be to this initiative becoming successful and having a major influence on how we develop our youngest players?
This last part is not a question but a request for coaches to share their stories and their own experiences if they have decided to adopt this methodology. This could be a very powerful thing and will help other coaches understand that they are not alone and that this approach is such a positive and enjoyable way to work with young people.
I look forward to reading your responses and hope that you enjoy episode 2.
