Using small-area games drives safe and effective skill development. It demands ” active coaching”.
In the small area game (SAG) youth German players discover skills in “real-time” and under game-like checking pressure.
Coaches these activity choices create "meta-stability" in skill; rapid acquisition of skill, and a high frequency of repetitions for the player-athlete.
With SAGs less structured, random or open practice is used. This is different from closed practice drills.
With SAG's the learner is challenged to choose and apply technical skills “reading and reacting” to the environment encountered. Individual and group tactics are acquired and stored in memory.
Situational awareness and movement confidence grow. As this player demonstrates safe and effective performance is realized!
