The skill that is equally important to gaining the highest technical standard, is the ability to make individual, in game, in the moment, micro decisions to achieve targets others fail to see.
When the skills below are added to great technique, it makes for all-round excellence!
1. The ability to view, in the mind's eye, the space between all the players.
2. The ability to make micro decisions, fine tune the timing and execution to maximise the available space and gain the greatest advantage.
Look at the black objects below.
Now look at the white space between the black objects.
Games Coaching is about seeing, creating and playing in the white space between the black objects. A skill which, when added to technique, makes for all-round excellence!

Watch the video below to see how a focus on the objects in a space stops us from seeing what is happening in the space between the objects.
Games Coaching is about seeing, creating, and playing in the space where the Monkey is.
Below - pick a branch to land on
Use the branches to frame the space.
See the space between the branches.
Now we can fly through the tree.
When we focus on objects we switch off our ability to see the space between the objects. Games coaching switches on players' ability to play in the space between the objects. A skill which, when added to technique, makes for all-round excellence! And keeps us young at heart.
In the picture below - the artist has positioned the flowers (objects) to shape space into a face.
The image is made of space. The artist has created something out of nothing.
Games Coaching helps players see and shape the space between each other. It seems magical. From where did that solution come?
When the ability to play with space, is added to technique, we get all-round excellence!
