Heads and Volleys Soccer Podcast

Heads and Volleys Soccer Podcast

By LeeDunneSoccer
Heads and Volleys is a grassroots Soccer game that reflects the youth soccer environment.
The game was played as everyone VS the GK and you could only score with a header or a volley. Simple, right? Wrong. It was complex and fraught with arguments that resulted in 'taking my ball home' or some kind of one-off shot to determine if it was a goal or not. Much like those arguments, this podcast will embrace discussions, trends, and ideas to grow the game, and will not let anyone take their ball home early.

31. Now what?
We’re all off - now what? So what do you do with this time? There are lots of options for you: LeeDunneSoccer Mastermind Twitter. And lots of Twitter! You might also have personal goals that you’ve put off - I got a Ukulele for Christmas and I’m PLAYING it, or at least trying to. You'll hear it here! What about your players? Engage your players with a Zoom, digital, team meeting - Like this I plan on delivering the 'defensive' side of our Game Model this way. Google forms - I'm asking the players to explain what 8 key words mean to them - the key words I use a lot! I have a Power Questions document available to challenge your players with your own google forms or in any other form you want to challenge them with. Do all of your players have an IDP? Get the template that I use, here. See it in action, here. Listen to my preach on episode 15. I’m thinking about a TikTok skills challenge. I mentioned struggling with the platform on episode 29 with Erik Oman… I have created videos for YouTube and they are fun to do also - fire away on that! Then there are dedicated platforms that will do the work for you, like MyPersonalFootballCoach. Explore Sauls content - it’s so worth it for your players to have some dedicated content for them to be challenged with, incase you do not have the (insert shortcoming here) to produce for your players. There is a lot you can do. Spend some quality time with yourself (no choice?), check in, meditate. Don’t waste it on Football Manager, but use the time to better yourself and be available to your players - which is also a really good time to see who is really ‘committed’ or interested in what you have to say - take that however you like!

Twitter has helped me to produce this podcast, and I love it! I put out a question: How do you get the ‘technical’ work into your practices? Do you isolate? Coach it for the first part of an SSG? Expect players to be proficient already? ‘Remind’ players through tactical work? The responses were awesome. I have collated them into several categories for your ears to enjoy! If you hear something good. PAUSE. and then hit up whichever of the following amazing people for their contribution so can share / learn more. @Coach Jonny D @FCDrewCampbell @CoachEm6 @neuromancer2000 @rianharkins @byron22911 @Coach_LewisVJ @king8paddy @joedifonso @darrenj00 @coachcolton @TwisterT3 @jonjohnson @jc_playmaker @Neosoccer728 @coachrickys @theesinstitute @kellysimsSTA @gmurphycoaching @coach_art_ @bradcreighton12 @oneillsoccer I love your feedback and want to hear from you, but you should also tag the people above for their contribution!

23. Questions with Bernard Hoffrogge
My new friend, Bernard, approached me recently and wanted to schedule some time to get together and talk Soccer. He is a coach and counsellor at the Two Rivers Soccer Camp and is starting out on his own coaching journey. He has coached teams within the SF Youth Soccer league, that I am the program director for, and is simply eager to be the best he can be, which begins with asking questions. We sat for almost two hours and after I realized it should have been recorded (newbie to this podcasting business) and so had him send me the questions again, and here is the result. If everyone would ask questions, we might be in a better place. @tacticalpad sponsors todays episode. Explore their brilliant software here. Feedback, please.

21. Challenging the Rules - Brian McGibbon
Brian delivers some brilliant content for you - He's like a wind-up-doll. Ask a couple of questions and away he goes. So much quality experience and advice that comes from a genuine place of caring for the child and their development into the game we all love. Some points Brian covers: Challenging the rules - why do we do things the same way for years? 'real soccer'? 3 things - need to learn the game, need to play the game, need to have fun. It has to be age appropriate. New ball assist! Not neutral. Everyone gets to score? Distracting the best players... Multiple goals!? 1 crayon for 4...!? Foul throw-ins? The ball needs to be on the field to play the game? Can we get the US Soccer '1 million touches' by age 16, with the restart debacle? Develop the passion before we develop the player - Coaching Outside the Box. The game needs to fit the child like a good pair of shoes - Horst Wein. Some notable influencers on Brian: Salisbury Rovers, Scott Nelson, Sam Snow, Renus Michels, Pep Guardiola, TOVO - Todd Beane, 3-4-3, Albert Puig, Chris Van Der Hagen, Coaches Voice, Tom Byers, Jacob Daniels - KINS John Kokkoris - The Orange Machine We're an experience provider - Can the parents have a good time too? Guess what, so are the referees! So, how do we get the kids as much experience as they can - We are adding value! Making it relative to the child: How good is your playlist? "hit me with your best shot" "Can't touch this" Bombshell. Catch them being good!!!! Catch Brian here - @FuninoCA  You will be glad you did and ask him more!!    @tacticalpad sponsors todays episode.

Yes, even your best one! - Conversation with players - building trust and recognizing they are not all the same. - Presenting goal and challenges to players - A different approach to recruitment - aimed at the college game, but transferrable to youth, if you have the balls... @tacticalpad sponsors todays episode.

8. Redefining Success, Part 1
Todays episode is focusing on your season and how you define the success. Part 1 - Only one team can win. The odds are against you. Not winning does not have to be the end of the world as we know it. So, how do you adjust your team focus? Included in that is the focus of the parents.
