Spotlight on Coaching
Long Term Player Development Model:


The FA Long-Term Player Development model indicates that time spent in primary school age practice compared to games should ideally produce a ratio of four parts practice time to one part competitive small-sided game time. Progressing at secondary school age to a ratio of, eg, two or three parts practice time to one part 11 v 11 game time. Balancing these activities requires local information and consideration of the needs of the players concerned.

The ratios suggested are not prescriptive but reflect examples of learning environments which offer players varied opportunities for development.
