TIPS

Tip 4:  Don’t give your players too much information. Keep it concise and try to give only a few key points in each drill. Use a plater from the group when demonstrating drills. This will give you the opportunity to explain and show how it should be performed.

Tip 5:  Don’t commentate during the drill. You will only confuse you players and over complicate the situation. Collect you thoughts and comments and feedback to the group at the end of the session or during a break. This will give the players the opportunity to correct their mistakes next time.
