8-18 year-old elite level football
players practised between 15-20

Elite players spent an increasing
amount of time on team/match play
practice than on individual practice

What are the implications for coaching behavior?
How effective and efficient are your coaching/practice strategies?

How do you develop skilful players as well as team/squad performance?

How do you motivate players and coaches day after day/session after session?

The motivational challenges…

In any competitive situation where achievement or competence are tested, human beings will either:

approach challenges in an attempt to maximise or maintain their levels of competence (positive energy; growth mindset)


engage in actions or behaviours that serve to avoid showing any incompetence (negative energy; fixed mindset)
(Harwood 2005)
