Plus there are many other details that can easily be registered with Dotcomclub. This article describes which questions you should ask yourself when planning a football training and how the Club Management System Dotcomclub can contribute to this.
- How do I start a half season or annual training plan?
Making a half season or annual plan can be a big task. So where should you start? First it’s important to determine which training topics should be covered. Next, it is important to see how much time you want to spend per training topic. This of course depends on how often you train per week and the level of your players. Perhaps you have not enough time for all topics in the number of training sessions you have planned for the year. An annual plan shows this and helps you set realistic targets at the start of your season.
The Club Management System Dotcomclub is the ideal assistant when making a half season or annual plan. Here you can easily indicate on which days you train, which period and at what times. With one push of a button, your training schedule is entered into the system and all training sessions are scheduled. You can specify the training subject and the training time per training. It is also possible to register training structures per training and to select (associated) drill exercises from the customizable Drill Library. Both functionalities will help you create a half season or annual training plan according to your own coaching philosophy.
With the Agenda functionality it is possible to generate a PDF export of your daily, weekly or annual plan. For each training it is possible to enter a (short) evaluation about the players and the training itself. This allows you to always evaluate your plan and to adjust it on time where necessary. In addition, it is also possible to view what has been trained per period via the Statistics. This way everything can be properly mapped out.
- What are some factors to consider when creating a training session?
When creating a training session, there are several factors to consider. First, know exactly how many players you will have available for the training session, how much field space you will have available and be aware of the level of your players. When looking at drills and exercises to use during your training session, make sure that they match the age and level of your group of players.
Registering your attendance is something which the Club Management System Dotcomclub easily allows you to do using your smartphone, tablet or computer. Even when you are already on the field! This feature will show you exactly how many players you have available for each session. Players and parents can also log in from home and inform you of an absence ahead of time.
- What should be included in the session?
You first need to include the topic of the session. Within this topic, you can assign your training structures and drill exercises. Each drill exercise should contain a description, instructions and coaching points.
The Club Management System Dotcomclub offers a drill library with many different drills separated into different categories. This is fully customizable per license. Each exercise can also be assigned to different age groups. It is also possible to use the integration with our partner ProSoccerPlanner. Through this integration, you can access the ProSoccerPlanner drill library.
