What Would you Prioritise in a Short Pre-Season?

The question this week comes from Neil, via the PDP Innovation Space:

“I start coaching a University team this month. I have not been involved with them before and clearly there will be new students involved for the first time also. We have 3 training sessions and one friendly before the season starts. Should I focus on key areas (e.g. shape, defending, possession) or try and cram as much broad coaching content as possible into the limited time available?”

 

Your Turn: Ask PDP Anything

Each week, we will choose a key question from our community for discussion.  In order to build a broad range of answers which will be valuable for our community, we need you to get involved.

Here’s what you can do:
