CPD Evening a Success
Herefordshire FA CPD Evening – November
We held our first of three CPD workshops this season at the SSAFA County Ground delivered by the Regional PE and Coaching in Education Coordinator Chris Lowe who put on a great session in what was a very wet night. But even with the rain we had a great turnout of local coaches, there were 19 in total and one from as far as Stourbridge who attend.
This month’s CPD we talked about 'Developing Skilful Players' looking at areas such as determining what the difference is between skill and technique. After beginning in the classroom where the group were asked to observe video clips and engaging in great conversation, Chris then took to the 3G pitch to be greeted by Lads Club U12’s Phoenix who would be the players for the evening, as the coaches sought shelter within the stands from the relentless rain.
Big thank you to the Phoenix players who were brilliant throughout the session and listened to the instructions given by Chris and stayed focused throughout the session. Chris was very complimentary about the night praising everyone who took part with the CPD,
So a big thank you to everyone who attended, it was great to see so many local players and coaches in one place developing on and off the pitch. We hope to see returning and new faces at our next CPD evening.
Our next two CPD workshops are as follows;
'The Matchday Experience' - Monday 6th February 2023 (6.30-9.30pm)
‘Supporting Players Through Different Formats’ – Thursday 11th May 2023 (6.30-9.30pm)
