With what data can you as a coach make your team better than the rest of the teams in the league?
We would like to explain this to you in the article below. Below you will find the four pillars that are guaranteed to offer you more structure as a coach.
1. Monitor training attendance
We all know that football is a team sport and that a good and cohesive team spirit is one of the greatest factors for future success. The motivation and involvement of the players play an important role in this. The more often you see each other and play with each other, the better and stronger the team feeling becomes and the players become more attuned to each other.
To monitor this properly, a club management system is a very useful tool. With one push of a button, you can easily mark a player as absent with the corresponding absence reason. This can be done on the computer as well as on the mobile phone. This allows you, as a coach, to always see what the training attendance has been.
2. Evaluate players (throughout the season) and let them evaluate themselves
It is always nice to see how (quickly) your players improve and especially in which areas. With your own evaluation form, you, as a coach, can easily evaluate the players within the team. For a maximum overview, do this several times throughout a season.
If you also want insight into how the players think about their own development, let the players fill in the same form. For good uniformity, the evaluation form can also be used throughout the organization.
If you use the Dotcomclub club management system, it is possible to compare two or more players in the statistics based on the completed evaluations. This can be done within the same season or over several years through bar, line or spider graphs. As a club you also have a handy tool for internal scouting.
3. Video analysis
There is no better way to supplement the textual evaluations than with videos from a training and/or match. With online video analysis, you help improve the performance of both you as a coach and the players. As a coach, you can easily find important points for improvement during and after training or matches.
You tag the most important moments in the match and assign the players involved to them.
The players then (immediately) see clearly the clips of the moments that are relevant to them. Pictures say more than a thousand words and the clips complete their player portfolio.
4. Use drills and learning principles
It goes without saying that players get better during training. To optimize the content of your training you can use drills and/or certain learning principles.
In the Netherlands, the KNVB has released a large number of drills via the online RINUS platform. This platform is therefore fully integrated into the club management system Dotcomclub.
In addition to the RINUS drills, there are also a number of drills available from different football organizations that work with Dotcomsport.
If you, as a coach, have your own drills, you can of course add them to your own drill library. Other coaches of your club may then also have the option to use them. As a club, you can easily build up your own drill library.
In addition to the above pillars, there is of course more data available at Dotcomsport that can help you to become a successful trainer. Think of Individual Development Plans, match data (in which minute and how you concede the most goals), average playing time per player, opponent registration etc.
