Superbly Animated Plays & Drills

Here at Junior Soccer Coach we make our drills, exercises, games and play sequences come to life thanks to a partnership with Play Manager. Play Manager allows us support many of our drills and play sequences with a powerful animated illustration.

This allows you to visualise the play sequence, as it has been described, with detailed coaching notes. This will ensure absolute clarity of:

  • The aim of the drill, exercise, game or sequence
  • How to structure it
  • What your players should be doing throughout the drill, and
  • What coaching information you should be giving to your players

    What will you see?

    On each drill page you will see a hyperlink, example - '','win','toolbar=0,location=0,directories=0,status=0,menubar=0,scrollbars=0,resizable=0,width=630,height=424');return false;" href="" target=_blank>Through the Gates together with a snap shot of the Play Manager illustration. Please click the hyperlink and you will open a separate pop up box which will load the selected play for you. Once the play has loaded you should have a play similar to the following image.

    '','win','toolbar=0,location=0,directories=0,status=0,menubar=0,scrollbars=0,resizable=0,width=630,height=424');return false;" href="" target=_blank>

    You can now view the animated play. The buttons on the tool bar at the bottom of the screen act exactly like they would on a cassette player. Our plays are configured to stop at key intervals to explain what is happening, this supports the narrative in the Junior Soccer Coach drill page.

    This is enabled due to the excellent facility called e-chalk. At the end of each sequence, new notes will populate in the dialogue box. Play sequences can be rewound and fast forwarded by using the appropriate buttons. We believe the use of Play Manager brings the coach's whiteboard into the digital era and really gives you an edge.
