Designing a Training Activity

Training activities give players opportunities to learn how to explore and adapt their skills in different situations. 

This video outlines how you can use the Training Activity Template to design an activity to include in your training session. 

Section 2

Designing a Training Session

A training session includes several different training activities that are designed to achieve an overall learning focus. As you plan your session, keep in mind that the general aim is to create activities that are fun and engaging and that allow players to get lots of chances to practice their skills in different game situations. 

A fun Training session has:

  • All players actively involved in games that are engaging and suited to their skill level
  • Activities fast paced and not too difficult.
  • Minimal waiting for their turn
  • Short and sharp directions from the coach 

We’re created templates for coaches to easily map their training sessions. Check out how to best design your sessions with the below video.
