In the subjective football world, many coaches just copy the champion which means that they will always be behind the leaders in their field. This online course will help you to stay ahead of the game by becoming an independent football thinker who does no longer rely on others to develop new ideas and unique solutions.
Just imagine a football coach wanting to learn HOW to best coach football players. He browses the Internet and stumbles upon hundreds of online courses about management and coaching. The overlap between the different courses is minimal, yet they all promise you the ‘holy grail’ of coaching. How on earth is a football coach supposed to separate relevant from irrelevant information in this jungle of flavours of the month? HOW to coach football, depends on all kinds of external factors. Does the coach work with women or men, with adults or children, amateurs or professionals, does his team train two, three or more times a week, does he have access to a whole, half or quarter pitch to practise, etc.? It is, therefore, very difficult for outsiders to determine HOW a coach should manage a specific situation.
Many courses present concepts based on the differences between people in, for example, personality and culture. In this online course, Raymond Verheijen did not take the differences but the similarities between people as the starting point. All players and coaches have to deal with the same game characteristics (WHAT) and evolutionary principles (HOW). Based on these similarities, universal coaching tools will be presented that give direction to HOW to coach football independent of subjective opinions, preferences, beliefs or experiences.
The online Football Coaching Theory course contains a 2,5-hour theory session and a 2,5-hour Q&A based on practical questions from coaches in the last 12 months. The theory session will be available for 2 months and the Q&A will be available for 1 month.
After successfully completing the 5-hour online Football Coaching Theory course, delegates will receive an official FCE certificate.
