    Episode Five: Coaching Youth Football with Ben Bartlett

    Ben Bartlett is widely considered one of the best coach educators in the business. He spent over 10 years as a coach educator at the FA before taking up the role of head of coaching at the Fulham Academy a year ago.

    Technical problems robbed us of some minutes, but as you would expect from Ben, there is plenty of thoughtfulness in this 26 minutes to be worth a listen.

    Episode Two: Coaching Youth Football with Michael Nicoll.

    In Episode Two of the Coaching Youth Football podcast we talk to Michael Nicoll of Brentwood Youth AFC about the practice of moving players up and down within a club, and much more.

    Brentwood Youth have a philosophy of 'football for all' and in this episode Michael talks about a lot of the good work that is going on at the club. Moving players between teams, both up and down, is a strategy that the club use to deliver the right level of challenge for every player.

    We talked about how communication and a shared vision is so important between players, parents, club and coach, and some of the strategies Brentwood use to foster that environment.

    We would love you to join the conversation on the Facebook page or Twitter thread, as this podcast is by youth coaches for youth coaches, and we can all learn more by sharing thoughts, opinions and ideas.

    The Relative Age Effect:

    In this episode of the Coaching Youth Football podcast we talk to Richard King about the Relative Age Effect, and why coaches need to be aware of it when coaching youth football players.

    At the end of the podcast, Richard asks a question back to you, the coach or parent of grassroots players, that I hope we will be able to discuss via our Facebook and Twitter pages.
