Part 13 - Numbers Game Wrap-up


(This scene is done with normal view facing coach)

Coach: "The 'Numbers Game' is an excellent drill for developing player confidence. It gives them the chance to test their developing skills in a game scenario without the pressure of an actual game. It's important for players to become comfortable controlling the ball and passing so that it becomes natural and automatic when they're in a real game. Pitting players of equal ability against each other gives the players a chance to develop, while still keeping them challenged. Keeping players challenged without overwhelming them is what will keep them coming back for more."
