Philosophy and Approach

Our coaching philosophy is to build teams that play organised, possession-based, attacking football. This style of play takes time and patience but is in line with the modern thinking in the game. This approach also gives all of our players the best chance to reach their individual and team goals in football, inside or outside the Bali Bulldog club.

Each player will be encouraged to be well-rounded in regard to their physical, technical, psychological and social abilities on the field, which is based on the English FA Youth Coaching Four Corners model of player development. Players are encouraged to play in all positions on the field, as it helps them to develop game awareness, game intelligence and understand the balance between attack and defence.

Coaching Session Plans: 4 elements

1. Introduction and warm up

The goal here is to prepare the children mentally and physically for the training.

2. Drills and Skills

The session consists of training exercises, which seek to develop all elements of the four corners model, ball mastery, and playing style. 

3. Practice game

Here, we put the skills practised in into a competitive match scenario. Principles are reinforced but the emphasis is on a free flow game where players learn from their own decisions.

4. The Big Finish

At the end of the training, coaches will ask for player feedback, thank the children for their time, give a closing word and then perform the famous Bulldogs farewell!
