Heads and Volleys is a grassroots Soccer game that reflects the youth soccer environment.
The game was played as everyone VS the GK and you could only score with a header or a volley. Simple, right? Wrong. It was complex and fraught with arguments that resulted in 'taking my ball home' or some kind of one-off shot to determine if it was a goal or not. Much like those arguments, this podcast will embrace discussions, trends, and ideas to grow the game, and will not let anyone take their ball home early.

    What we don't see when we use them.
    Constraints and challenges for individuals.
    What a training environment should look like if we're following the Constraints Lead Approach correctly...

Lee really makes you think

I have enjoyed listening to the Heads and Volleys Podcast. Coach Lee Dunne adds a personal touch to all his episodes and I feel I have some kind of connection/similarities with his guests. Lee really makes you think of as a person and coach.

How to Raise Your Soccer IQ

A riveting podcast from the first whistle to last. It left me with a feeling of sophistication only felt when truly immersing yourself in critical analysis; and creative expression.

A grassroots take on changing the game.

Can not wait for syndication.

Cheers.
