Player and Coach Development

Risborough Rangers JFC have an ongoing commitment to provide the very best opportunities we can for our players and their coaches to develop. We want the players to enjoy their football and gain as much as possible from playing the game, each player may have different reasons for playing, some will want to get better and improve their skills and knowledge, some will play because Football is great exercise, and others will play because Football is a great way to enjoy time with your friends.

For the Coaches we want them to get the most out of their time too, whilst all the coaches are volunteers, we want to ensure as many of our coaches are FA trained as possible, so that they can give the very best support to the players and also so that they can use this knowledge to develop their confidence as a coach but also over time a coaching style and a coaching philosophy, that will in turn help the players they are working with during their Football journey.

The aim of this page gong forward will be to share some of the great coaching ideas that are being used across the club and also look to use this page to let all the Coaches in the club know when and where FA coaching courses are taking place across the County.

Coaching Ideas

Firstly one for those of you in the foundation phase. Have a look at the video below, the game is called Risky Business and can be used for a number of different training subjects. My players love this game, as not only is it fast paced and competitive, but if you have a board and pens they get to do the scores themselves as well.

I have used this to work with my players on attacking overloads, defensive positioning and decision making amongst other subjects, and the session hits a great number of  of the FA’s 4 corner objectives, so have a look and I’m sure you’ll be able to use this in your session as well.
