Arrival activities

Arrival activities are the perfect way to start your coaching sessions.

There are a few things that make arrival activities stand out:

  • They easily adapt to accomodate constantly changing numbers
  • Players can generally run them without coach intervention (allowing you to set up subsequent activities)
  • They stop players standing around at the start of a session or aimlessly banging balls at the goal.
  • They allow you to maximise your training time and get players focused from the first minute.

If you’ve not been using arrival activities, now’s the time to start. They’re recommended by the FA and many other coaching associations around the world.
