An excellent article. Some great practical advice for dealing with situations in which many coaches struggle. I agree that "fun" certainly shouldn't mean "mucking about" during a session. "Fun" can mean different things to different people. Just over a year ago I wrote an article called "Fun Tops the Charts". It discusses the importance of finding out what "fun" means to your athletes, and how to go about including it in training sessions. See https://coachingyoungathletes.com/2015/06/01/fun-tops-the-charts/.

Hi Dan, can agree and see the reasoning behind all 7 points. I would say that this can be applied to various ages too. Fun does not discriminate by age, older players too can get silly! I shall certainly be referring to these 7 again. Thanks for sharing :)

Darren, just read your article (and love the blog!) and can see how asking the group actually provides a sensible and practical process in giving the players what they want! All coaches should do from the first session in my opinion. Once you give the players what they want and then using Dan's 7 steps on session management you then have yourselves a great session.
Lovely work gentlemen, thank you both.
