10 Right Place

11 Right Time

12 Right Style

13 Right Place Right timeRight priceRight style Ask people where they want to play. Ask people when they want to play. Ask people what is a reasonable contribution Style evolves over time. Coach must be in charge but many good coaches do not appear to be. It is hard work to appear so laissez faire. Be mindful of issues of territory A midnight session does not have to begin at midnight! Assume the sessions will be free. Group cooperates and belongs to all participants. The more the solidarity the better the discipline. Be mindful of pre-history (are they barred from a Leisure Centre?) Late nights might suit late teens. Fundraising towards a specific event - a trip or tournament bonds a group. Skills and drills unlikely to engage target group. Have a session plan but be flexible. Find creative ways to teach skills. Participants might start on open space within their territory. Be mindful of working hours – not everyone works 9-5. Do not expect all people to come at the start and leave at the end. The better the solidarity the better the attendance. Coach will be mindful of the advantages of moving indoors in winter Community might want sessions at times when there are high rates of ASB. Do not expect people change for the session or wear right gear. Do not expect clear cut age groups in each session. Keep older group separate – its not cool to play with 14 year olds. Coach knows participants individually and has a progression plan for each. Doorstep Sport
