Hello again lads and lasses. You might remember I was asking aboot coaching a while back.
 
Well I got 'the call' from the chairman tonight. I'll be coaching an Under 16 A team.
 
This being a tough starting point, I'd love it, if any of you have experience in coaching, would give me some advice or tips on the subject via this thread or PM.
 
Thanks in advance lads Thumbs%20Up

I led an U12s team to shield victory in the Ballybrack mini world cup in 2002. I was just an inspirational figure. We had one lad who was so much better than everyone else so i let him away with murder and the rest did the doggy work. Feed the ego of the talented players and they will reward you

He's retired and associates with pillars of society like myself. Was in the same class in school as Jake Kelly (bray) and Jay O'Shea and just as good as them. But when he started to drink he started to associate with his uncle and his scumbag friends

if you do play 5-a-sides, pick 2 captains to pick their teams, and play first to 2 goals, win by 2 - keep it competitive where there is always an incentive for the team ahead, and the team that is behind by one goal. count the number of games won, versus the score in one longer game.

Sounds good Billy. What kind of incentive though? How do you keep it competitive? Assorted crisps???
 
Or the threat of laps? Thing is I don't think laps are necessary for lads that age... But 5 a side seems to be the way to go Smile

Cool
 
The club is delighted to announce that they have secured the services of John Ralph, James Minogue and Mark Togher as the U-16 management team for the coming season. John has had a very successful year as last season U-12 manager, when winning the Mayo League & Cup double and just falling short in the Connacht final. He has also served along side Gavin Dykes with the clubs Super League team and he will bring his vast experience and knowledge to the position. James Minogue is currently part of Declan Kilkellys League of Ireland side and was the Captain of the all conquering All-Ireland winning U-18 side in 2006/7. James has just returned after spending a year with Galway Utd. Mark Togher is the third member of the team and he has played for Celtic at all ages groups and has a real understanding of the game. The Togher name has been associated with Celtic for well over sixty years when his Grandfather John was on the first Celtic team to win a trophy. All at the club would like to wish them well for the coming season and hoped that the players will this take this opportunity to learn from this talented management team.

number one for me mark is absolutely no negativity on a personal level , if a fella is playign badly , explain to him that you expect more from him and let him know why he is dropped. no bollicking a player on the park and discourage the lads from bollickign each other, no-one reacts well to negativity, that bneign said if the whole team is playing poor then a general bollickign can work wonders if used in the right way!

u-15 or  u-16 lads should not need to be incented to practice or improve their skills.   good thing is to always incorporate 3-5 minute bursts of "2 touch football" during the 5-a side - can be a great leveller if one team has a couple of ball hogs (all the young lads it seems think their Ronaldo and want to dribble all day - the limited touches forces players to get their head up and spot a pass.  sounds really obvious, but can be great for increasing the tempo, and getting everyone involved.

If you want i will gladly give you all the manuals etc from the course, its pretty self explanatory and is very well put together. PM  Your address and ill post it on to ya

Jaysis havnt heard anything myself. I havnt talked to anyone down there in ages but it doesnt come as a surprise because there are only a handful of people actually putting time into the place. It shares the club house with the boxing club who i think own it or own the lease. I cant see it going under put the club has been on a major slide over the last few years. Considering a lot of my family run the place i should personally be helping out a bit more   

I did enjoy my best days at loughlinstown though. Ballybrack were so big at the time i was just spat out through the system and Lougho showed me love

Did the old Level One a few years back the equivalent of the Youth Cert now I think. When they brought in all the new courses went back and did the Kick Start 1 just to see what the new way of courses were like. Very good course most of the stuff is aimed at 7-9 but I've used some of the activities with kids up to U11 all depends on the ability levels and sure you can adapt them to make them harder!
 
Would definitely reccomend getting the courses done if your involved in coaching Smile

Jesus had my first run in with a spectator last night... He had such a go at me for no reason... Sad thing is he was in his 40s and his young fella of no more than 10 or 11 was beside him. I was rarely as angry in my life. All part of the learning I suppose

Absolute bullsh*t...
 
St. Josephs Boys received one of the highest accolades in their 55-year history last weekend when they claimed victory in the FAI Club of the Year competition.

The annual event, which the FAI organise in conjunction with the Irish Star Newspaper and the Citywest Hotel, is the culmination of a season during which a series of monthly prizes are given out to worthy winners.

The eight clubs who were successful in obtaining those monthly awards went forward to last weeks final vying for the overall trophy to be selected ahead of the FAI AGM.

Those eight finalists were clubs, Curragh Athletic, St. Michael's AFC, Glaslough Villa, Peamount United, Tullamore Town, Crumlin United, Listowel Celtic and St. Josephs Boys.

An independent judging panel, consisting of Paul Cooke (Irish Star), Tom Maher (Citywest), Pauric Corkery (eircom), Paul Martin (FAI volunteer education coordinator), Karl Mitchell (Dublin City council) and Arnold OByrne assessed each club on a range of criteria including facilities, participation and coaching.

St. Josephs Boys from Sallynoggin in South Dublin, which boasts a membership of almost 1,000 children including six Girls teams, were chosen as the winner.

FAI President, David Blood, acknowledged the huge role made to grassroots sports by Joeys and the contribution it has made within the community - not only in Dublin, but in the sporting community as a whole.

The eyes of the Republic of Ireland manager Giovanni Trapattoni were raised when he discovered that three current International players Andrew Keogh, Paul McShane and Alan OBrien - all donned the black and white of Joeys before pursuing a career in England.

In his acceptance speech on behalf of the club, Club Chairman George Forsyth thanked the judging panel and acknowledged it was a privilege to accept the award on behalf of all the 120 leaders, coaches and, indeed, players at St. Josephs.

To carry on the ethos of putting the Player first laid down by its founders in 1953 shows that the development of children in the right environment, with the right values is, indeed, the way forward, which ultimately benefits society in the long term.

George dedicated the award to the late Austin Mullen, who passed away this season after a lifetime commitment to Joeys.

St. Josephs Boys will host its International Tournament The Hibernia Trophy - on August 22-24 at their home of DNG Park in Sallynoggin.

Eight Elite Under-15 teams will participate including Charlton, Sunderland, Utrecht (Holland), Trelleborg (Sweden) and Izumo City (Japan), St. Josephs Boys, the DDSL and the FAI Development squad. For more details, long on to: http://www.hiberniatrophy.com - www.hiberniatrophy.com

Thats a nice copy and paste but they still treat their players like sh*te. One of the highest funded clubs in the country as well

Nice one Mafi I'll get right on that!! Gonna research it tonight.
 
Fairly spread out here at the moment. Won again tonight and one win away from winning the Under 17 Mayo League. Strictly following a passing game. No over the top nonsense And it's no bother because the lads love it anyways!
 
Under 16 girls national cup v Salthill next Saturday. Big game against a quality side! Here's hoping Also applied for Summer Soccer school and waiting on Garda Clearance to get the go ahead!

Haha, confidence boost I'm sure
 
Good stuff Z, never coached anyone that young but I'm looking forward to getting a group of lads at that age and following through the ranks. By the time they're under 18 they'll be an unstoppable posession team Clap
 
Second half tonight our GK got 4 touches of the ball. About 7 million passes and 90% posession! It's extremely satisfying when a plan comes together

Ah yeah,its a nice feeling when you work on things in training and they replicate them on a match day.Obviously at under 9s they can be inconsistent in training and matches but once their attitude is right you can accept that.

Our girls won the Leinster U16 Cup the other night too and the U14 boys won the All Ireland yesterday.

How do the older lads react to you Mark?I wouldn't fancy coaching older than 14s.

To be honest they're grand. This is my third season so I've kinda cemebnted myself there. We play the football they love playing so they have good time for me and Mick. They know if they f**k about, don't try or turn up at training, then they don't play. End of story. They're a great bunch of lads, very talented and I can't wait to start the FAI in September!

17s Continue Imressive Run
 
The Under 17 A team continued their impressive form with a comprehensive 11-0 win over Kilmurry last Monday. Celtic dominated the first half with a large amount of posession, and Kilmurry found it hard to keep Celtic at bay. Adam Chambers in goal was confident throughout and his distribution was excellent. This gave Celtic a great edge as it provided width and a very quick attack which Kilmurry found hard to deal with. Noe Baba, playing at left back, scored his first of the day after some terrific link up play with Colm Nevin, who sent Baba through on goal who made no mistake slotting it past the 'keeper. 2 similar goals were to follow from the left, ourtesy of Cian Brennan and Baba's second. The half time score was a well deserved 3-0. The movement, passing and work rate in this team is improving every week and it was clear to see after a superb first half display.
 
The second half started with a bang with top scorer Jordan Loftus letting fly from 30 yards and struck a beauty into the top right corner. Jamie Ivers tried to go one better with a bullet from 35 yards that went straight into the top left corner. Ivers was quick to dismiss any "nonsensical and outrageous" bull-toe rumours. Patrick Boyle chipped in with a wonderful finish after beating the high Kilmurry line. He was sent through by Colm Nevin and then Boyle, staying calm and composed, chipped the ball beyond the 'keeper's reach to grab his 5th of the season. Noe Baba completed his hat-trick, Jordan Loftus and Cian Brennan added to their tally, and substitutes Gary Walsh and Matthew Ruane chipped in with a goal each.
 
The management were, yet again, delighted with the performance. "We've been delighted with the progress of this squad and they've just been improving with every game they play. The lads are enjoying their football and that's what counts at the end of the day."
 
Celtic's next game is at home to Ballyheane, date to be confirmed.
 
Celtic: Adam Chambers; Michael Hall, Steve Walsh (c), Jamie Ivers (Smyth, 70), Noe Baba; Gerry Hunt (McDermott, 58), Colm Nevin (Ruane, 55), Keith Mulchrone (Walsh, 55), Cian Brennan; Jordan Loftus, Patrick Boyle.
 
Subs: Kenneth McDermott, Alex Smyth, Gary Walsh, Matthew Ruane

Absolutely tribal, the guy is ridiculous. He scored a hat trick last night from left back!! And he's been captaining the Ireland 15s for ages now.
 
But there's another lad on our team that deserves a shot because the guy is a special player... He hasn't been given a proper shot, which is beyond belief.
