I don't consciously aim to finish a session on a high, but I do try to avoid a low - in a batting session, "one last hit" can be extended until the batter gets a good contact with the ball; or of a player nails three perfect hits, I might call a halt there and then, even if there is still a minute or two left to try some more.

I agree Andrew, we often end our lunchtime netball session once they score a goal even if it does take some people one shot and others 20! The end high can also be created by positive words after a challenging session, reminding them of their achievement/peak and being excited to see them again the following week.

I personally like to finish the final session before a game with a small 5 minute exercise that promotes team unity & a positive upbeat vibe. I feel it is important leading into a game that the players & team leave the track knowing they are prepared & have a good positive feeling about themselves.

Great idea, Steve. Do you have any examples of the 5-minute exercises that work well for you?

Hi Elly, I like to mix the last 5 mins up with a bit of variety. In general the exercises I do will result in a shot on goal which is the ultimate aim we are trying to achieve on match day. I either keep the group as a whole or break into 2 groups so they can compete against each other. The exercises are basic & generally involve short random passing & on coaches call or a whistle or a colour or a nominated object, the person with the ball will have a shot on goal as fast as they can from the random position they are in. If they score encourage team mates to be over the top boyant in celebration. I have done exercises with a cone obstacle course, relays, shot after a number of team passes etc. I've also done small team work exercises like in groups of 5 each person can only use 1 finger & as a group balance a ball while running around cones, on coaches call group to drop ball & one group member will take a quick shot on goal. If group drop ball whilst moving they get a goal taken off their score. You can be as creative as you like. The ultimate aim of exercise is to SCORE, get the group communicating & working as a team. Have some Fun, Feel upbeat, relaxed & positive.

Thanks for explanation, Steve. I totally misunderstood ... I imagined the 5-minute exercises to be something other than physical activities ... perhaps some kind of off-pitch/court/field team bonding scenarios/tasks/games/puzzles. For example, I've asked players to get into their positional units to discuss and share individual and group sucesses from the session to take into the upcoming game ... a feel-good, talking exercise. Does anyone else have any other bonding exercises they have used? Willing to share? I need more!
