With the World Cup starting next week, its is a great opportunity for players the watch lots of soccer.
Watching games on TV is a great way to improve your soccer, by trying to practice and imitate some of the individual skills demonstrated by some of the top players in the world. Watching games can also improve players overall game understanding and awareness through observing how the team works together when attacking, when defending, and what players do on and off the ball.
To assist with the development in these areas and to encourage players to watch games and be more engaged while watching, Richmond FC Technical Director, Steve Hood, has developed World Cup worksheets players can complete before during and after the game.
Parents can assist players when completing the worksheets, especially for the younger players, and RFC encourages parents not to try and influence the answers.
The sheets are in PDF format and can print off as many copies as you like.
The World Cup Starts on June 14th and runs till July 15th, games will be shown early in the morning 5am, 8am and 11am kick off Pacific Time. Recording games to watch at a later time maybe the best option in some cases, and the games will be repeated later in the day if you are unable to record the early games.
