Creating Unstructured Sporting Environments – TMS Podcast

#3 – Creating Unstructured Sporting Environments The Mastermind Site – Podcast

COVID-19 has presented a unique opportunity for community sports organizations and their coaches to rethink their practices and work toward greater inclusivity. In Canada, few opportunities exist in the community for youth to practice on their own through unstructured play and unstructured learning environments. This episode explores how we can create these unstructured sporting environments in Canada, using programs like Kicks in the UK as an example. We also explore how to inspire youth to achieve greater individual involvement in the sport, both in terms of participation and individual involvement within games.  Guest: Adam Stapleton is a current masters and Youth License student, along with his role as a head coach with Whitecaps London FC. He is also a frequent contributor to the online resource studentofthegame.co.uk and can be found on Twitter @AdamFStapleton. Host: Rhys Desmond is the creator and owner of TheMastermindSite.com. He is lifelong lover and educator of the beautiful game. You can find him on Twitter @DesmondRhys. Follow TMS: @mastermindsite on Twitter and Instagram.

#1 – Liverpool's Tactical Concerns (2020-21) The Mastermind Site – Podcast

Much of the dialogue going into this weekend’s Liverpool-Manchester City match centered around the fixture as a potential title decider for Liverpool. The assumption was that if Liverpool lost, their hopes and dreams of winning the title would dash before their eyes. As it turns out, Liverpool didn’t just lose, but were badly beaten and bruised by a terrific Manchester City side. With all of their struggles this season, not just against City, we take an in-depth look at where Liverpool have gone wrong tactically and beyond.  Guest:  Russell Tho is a Liverpool and Barcelona fan and friend of the show.
