I’m super excited to announce that I’m going to be running a workshop for soccer coaches in coordination with EDP Soccer on May 20 in East Brunswick, NJ.

The workshop will focus on how to plan and run better training sessions.  I’ll be drawing on the work of cognitive scientists like Anders Ericsson, Daniel Willingham and Brown/Roediger/McDaniel (the Make it Stick guys) as well as my own studies of high performing teachers.

We’ll watch soccer coaches in action, via video, then discuss analyze and practice ourselves.  Topics will include giving better feedback, planning better sessions, checking for understanding effectively and building positive culture.

I’ll be using material I’ve used in workshops with US Soccer to train top coaches, instructors and academy directors.
