Week 3 — Summer Training Periodization
— develop defensive vocabulary; field during the activity was too small; will need to make grid bigger for decision making (tactical) days.
Tactical (Tuesday / Wednesday)
— larger space was super helpful for the boys; players are recognizing that they don’t have to run so much and can still be effective;
— 2 games of 13:00 with 2:00 rest; effort good but room for improvement; must improve transitional moments individually and as a team.
— recognized that the boys seemed tired mentally/physically, so really wanted to run a very easy recovery session; did a very thorough warm-up and then played a game of kickball. So good for the team socially, mentally, and physically.
Planning on making some changes for next week by taking out one of the tactical days and adding in a weight room session. The change of venue and another opportunity for the boys to connect outside the turf will be super beneficial!
