    I've just started coaching my son's under 9 nippers group, I had a great first session however yesterdays session was not so good.

    I just felt like everyone was a bit flat and no matter what I attempted (eg new activities,games) I just couldn't seem to lift the spirits of the kids. On top of this it seemed every 5 mins I had a child that was either bored, injured, upset and/or didn't want to participate.

    Just wondering if anyone out there has experienced a flat coaching experience and/or a session that just didn't plan out how you would have hoped and then what you may have done to help lift the spirits of the kids and in turn make the session more enjoyable for yourself.

    Thank you

    Hi Glenn

    Flat coaching sessions happen to every coach – I've watched coached at Premier League academy level struggle with sessions and with the behaviour/responses of the players. 

    It isn't easy this coaching lark! 

    Funnily enough I have just posted a blog on Connected Coaches about a coaching session that went wrong and how I cope with this and what i get out of it once the session is over and I can review it.

    You can read it here
