Take Centre Stage

Individual football coaching directs all the focus to the learner. It’s easy for players to get overlooked at group training - this form of training provides the perfect opportunity for the coach to deliver detailed coaching points that will increase the player’s performance. In addition to this, from a coaching and teaching perspective it is important to acknowledge that every individual is different and therefore, may have different learning styles. A Coachability coach can quickly assess how each player most effectively learns and adapt their coaching style to fit them best.

Practice Makes Perfect

No matter the level of the player, there is always room for technical improvement and it is often hard for the player to know themselves what needs correcting and what they should be doing differently. If a player unknowingly repeats an action or a touch on the ball with bad form, then they will find it difficult to correct this. However, in a 1-to-1 coaching environment, the coach is able to spot bad technique quickly and correct it. This means that mistakes can be explained to the player in detail, so that they have a better understanding of the correct form and work on repeating good habits.

Social and Psychological Development

Over the recent years, the FA has promoted the importance of player psychology. 1 on 1 coaching creates an environment in which the player is being constantly and adequately challenged. This form of training encourages players to take ownership and responsibility for their successes and failures within each session. This can have a positive effect in preparation for matches and competitive environments and can also make them a more independent and decisive player in team environments.

Working Towards Personal Goals: No Matter The Ability

There is a misconception that 1 on 1 coaching is only for professional or academy standard players. This is wrong, the benefit of your own football coach is that they are flexible, have vast experience and can design a personalised programme relevant to the areas the player would like to develop. Each player has different objectives, goals and circumstances and this is why having your own football coach can really help. A football coach from Coachability will take the time to listen, analyse and discuss a strategy and programme to effectively develop the player. There is also constant communication between the coach and the player which allows both to adapt to situations or unpredictable circumstances and most importantly continuously look for possible improvements in performance.


Busy schedules can be challenging and 1-on-1 coaching provides an efficient training session that can fit in with your timetable. 1-on-1 coaches work versatile hours and will be able to coach based on the rest of the player’s routine which is especially important if the player has team training and matches at other points in the week, allowing for necessary recovery time. This is also beneficial for busy parents who can book their coach for time slots that are convenient and allow them to juggle other commitments. Another benefit of 1-on-1 coaching is the flexibility of location, you may not need to travel far, have access to equipment or a pitch, often a park is effective as the coach will bring their own equipment.

The above benefits are just a few of many that coaching can have on helping a player become a better footballer. Finding the right coach is important and Coachability makes it easy for you by allowing you to search from recommend available coaches in your local area.
