Working with Strikers

Working With Strikers is our most popular course, developed by CM Coaching’s Chris McGinn over decades of coaching, working with strikers such as Dennis Bergkamp,  Raheem Sterling, Jay Emmanuel Thomas, Jay Simpson,  Nathan Dyer, Scott Sinclair, Bobby Zamora, and Sanchez Watt. On this course, which concentrates heavily on the practical aspects of coaching rather than theory, you will learn:

  • Receiving skills under pressure
  • Linking with strikers or other support players
  • The perfect finish
  • Where do most assists come from?
  • Where are goals scored from?
  • What techniques and attributes are needed for the modern striker?

This is a one day workshop for serious coaches of all levels.
