As coaches, one of our main responsibilities will be to generate a “Game Model”. A Game Model can be understood as the common interpretative framework that will promote different patterns of coordination between our players. And coaches will have to design training sessions respecting this complex and variable nature, and training sessions where the Game Model is represented. Trainings must contain tasks of high variability that reproduce the complex nature of the game. For that purpose, the best tool we have available is the use of “Small-Sided Games”.
"This book is an excellent resource for any aspiring coach and provides real life examples tried and tested by Andreu.
