Learn how to demonstrate soccer skills more effectively by following the tips below:

Gather Attention

  • Set the scene so that your campers know what they should be looking at
  • Use verbal instruction to get the campers’ attention (“Freeze,” etc.)

Get the Quality Right

  • Highlight the important parts and don’t overload the campers with information
  • Show enthusiasm… it rubs off on your campers
  • Never rush through your demonstrations

Know Your Stuff

  • Be clear on what you want to demonstrate
  • Keep it short, but don’t cut out important details
  • Practice the demonstration beforehand so you can execute it correctly

Camper Involvement

  • Get your campers involved by asking questions/having them demonstrate
  • Allow your campers time to ask any questions regarding the demonstration
  • Giving campers responsibility gives them confidence

Assessment

  • Immediately give your campers the opportunity to try out the skill
