Have you lost a game due to the fact that you didn’t adequately instruct your kids in what to do with the flip? I’ve witnessed it twice.
What happens? The team A is the winner of the coin toss and then defers the team B, who have lost the toss informs the official that they intend to defend the goal in the south since their coach advised that they had to defend the south goal in the event that they were to lose in the game of coin-toss. Team A gets the ball in the first half, and because the team A decided to defer their choice until later in the game, at the time the second period begins then team A will be able to choose to receive the ball in the second half. Team A will gain the additional possession due to inadequate coaching team B’s coach. I’ve witnessed it happen on a couple of spbo because Team B’s coach did not take the time to train the flip of the coin, and the team was not able to respond correctly in response to “defer” decision.
How can you ensure that this doesn’t occur to your football youth team?
Start by ensuring that the captains group that you assign to call the flip comprises one person who is sharp. The sharp person should be the one who announces the coin flip, and also speaks for the team during the flip. You can also practice the coin flip along with him. Many youngsters are unable to react at the flip due to the fact that it’s a new concept for them. The flip must be practiced in the same way you train your football skills.
The player is asked to make the call, he must know whether he will call heads or tails prior to leaving the field. When he has called the flip then flip the coin and believe that the flip is correct. The player will then inform the referee whether he would like to be awarded, defend the goal, or defer his decision to the next period. If you choose to defer, the player has to know which goal zone you’d like to defend in order for the first half of the game. After that, you’ll have to proceed with the procedure when he loses the game and the opposing team picks the first. They will be given the option of receiving either a goal, defend or delay.
The most effective way to cover all points is to tell your designated speaker to inform the referee that you’re interested in the ball no matter what the outcome of the flip is The player should inform the official “we would like to have to get the ball”. We tell our players to declare to the official “we would like to have the ball” when they are asked a question from the referee at the time of the flip. After the official has asked , and received three times the answer by saying “we would like to have the ball” is it possible to state the goal we would like to defend.
We always get a reward the prize if we are the winners of the toss of the coin. It is a sport in which the team who is first to score has some advantage in speed, but we also need to manage the clock and establish the pace of the game to be offensive. With only 10 minutes of play for most youth football matches, every game and every minute of the clock is significantly more significant. If we don’t win our coin toss we don’t have to wait for the wind to blow in the fourth quarter. We would like to make sure the game is beyond reach quickly therefore we start the wind straight from the start to put other teams offensively at a disadvantage immediately.
Good football coaching for kids includes taking care of your game day and nothing is more embarrassing than losing the coin toss. Do it as you would your football routine and you won’t feel shamed for giving up two chances on the first flip. Remember, just like all mistakes made at this level, the blame is about the coach and the preparation.
