We are challenging ourselves and other coaches to limit their use of cones to 5 per activity (excluding for goals). There are a couple of keys to our madness:
- Non-game specific stimuli
- Detracts from creativity
- Prevents decision making related to matches and chaos
- Can bring about unnatural physical responses e.g. dribbling through a cone set requires far more looking to the ground than we educate in a game scenario, when we encourage players to look up
It is our hope that by collaborating with other coaches, we can build a solid bank of resources to be used for inspiration in formulating our own session plans.
