Genesis: Before the 9-Step Practice


The Genesis: Before the 9 Step Practice DVD is a great mix of classroom explanation and on-field demonstration.

Koach Karl Dewazien gives step by step directions on how to organize educational youth practices.  Practices that duplicate the excitement of the game. Practices that create an environment which forces the players to make decisions. Practices that create an atmosphere where the players are allowed to teach themselves. Practices that create an environment that develops instinctive attacking and defending habits.  Practices that make hard work seem like FUN!

Koach Karl is a master teacher when it comes to making learning FUN. Don’t miss out on this great DVD, a must have!

The rationale for determining practice duration is very logical. Teach the players to work hard for the length of their games and sandwich warm-up, cool-down and stretching around it. Sandwich 1+1/1 vs. 1 games and a FUN scrimmage around skill work, which will improve motivation to do the skills, improving one’s love of the game. Which should lead to improved motivation to do skill work. Which in turn will lead to even further enjoyment of the game and the cycle would continue. More FUN leads to more motivation to work on skills, which lead to more FUN.

The DVD convincingly demonstrates that coaches should be patient with young players and take as long as is needed for players to master skills. This DVD will help coaches keep an open mind about the potential abilities of your players without prematurely giving up on them.
