Communication and Leadership: Its Importance and development in BWSA

Communication and Leadership is a vital part of Soccer, as it help teams to become organized to developing and playing the game in to a high standard. Many people think the Coach is solely responsible for keeping his/her organized in a functional unit, however it is also players on the field who are responsible for communicating and taking some form of leadership during training and matches. Correct communication and leadership provided at the right time and with the right tone is useful in situations like correcting incorrect positioning of teammates in the attempt to keep a good defensive shape, or to suggest a run to a teammate into the space when attacking. In order to provide the right information, it is important to be able to “read the game” meaning to have “insight of the game”. On the soccer pitch, the most obvious leadership role is the Captain's Role, who is responsible for impacting the team through organization and communicating instructions to other. However every player can provided leadership and communication have a positive impact on their team.  One development aims of BWSA, is for players to develop more Leadership and Communication skills, to help our teams become more organized and play more effective soccer. So in order to do this, our Coaches aim to build the confidence of our players to be able to speak up in front of their peers and offer instructions to impact on the team’s performance.

The Nike Football Academy, recently posted up a YouTube video on Communication and Leadership that help to develop their players become more effective in their Communication and Leadership skills. BWSA and YES have taken and adapt the session ideas and coaching points to develop a BWSA 'Communication and Leadership' Session for our coaches to use, which is now available on our website.

Barcelona’s 'Rondo' exercise introduced to BWSA

FC Barcelona wallpaper

At Baldwin Whitehall Soccer Association (BWSA), we are trying to get our players to play better soccer, during our In House and Travel games. We believe that short passing and better ball retention can help not only improve the Association going forward, but also help develop our players' abilities and impact when playing for BWSA teams. It will also improve the results and reputation of the Association, as better ball retention of our teams will increase our teams' abilities to control matches and create more goal scoring opportunities. We believe the more we utilize 'The Rondo' practice, we will achieve these aims.

To access BWSA's 'Rondo' information, please follow the below instructions......

-> Hover over the 'Coaches' tab at the top of BWSA's homepage

-> Scroll down to 'Coaching Resources'

-> Finally go across and click on 'The Rondo' tab.
