Nick ... I had the very same experience a couple of weeks ago. One of our defenders was struggling a little with some of her passing and we had spent quite a bit of time working on some specifics - looking for longer, more penetrative passes ... exploring some different techniques ... putting her under pressure in training. We worked on this in training and I did some individual work with her in the warm up. Mid-way through our game against Germany she was getting into that phase again and what did i shout to her ... "just be confident!" If only it were that simple! On reflection and after reading this we've (mostly I) have been working on some other methods to support her ... some trigger words to link back to our training work, visualisation and imagery ... certainly better than the "be confident" request!

So easily done. I find that most of the time substituting the word 'confident' for 'aggressive' seems to do the trick, as I am often wanting the athlete to go 'all in' as opposed to being cautious. Thanks for taking the time to comment, let me know how you get on!

Well we've just had our Euros and I think I managed to refrain from the prescription route ... and the girl in question played very well and with great confidence ... hopefully there is some correlation to the work we've been doing! We have similar issues with caution with our girls ... we also want them to go 'all in' more but the challenge is to get them confident in their teammates that defensive cover is in place and that the aggression is the right thing at the right time. Still a work in progress ... will keep you updated!
