About the event

It is always been about players finding their perfect combination of technical skills, speed, strength, and in-game decision-making. They can't be separated.

When it comes to scouting players it is easier to assess their technical, speed, and strength. Much harder to assess their in-game decision-making. This is especially the case when a player has superior technical, speed, and strength to the players around them. This can lead to players being selected for teams where they have less dominance in terms of technical, speed, and strength - or an injury lowers their dominance - and then their poor in-game decision-making comes to light.

As coaches of in-game decision-making - this is how we assess players...

When a player with good in-game decision-making skills has the ball - they will look at the space behind the player marking them. They will look at what their teammates are doing - and move to change the shape of the space around them. A player with poor in-game decision-making skills sees only the player in front of them.

When a player with good decision-making skills does something, and it doesn't work, they move to options b, c, etc. When a player with poor in-game decision-making can’t do the one thing they have been asked to do - they overthink and rush. And do any combination of - get angry, give up, deflect, blame.

When a player with good in-game decision-making will move through space to arrive at the right place at the right time - to use current technical skills and current speed and strength - to do something for the first time - that is so obvious they wonder why they didn’t see it before. A Wow moment. A player with poor in-game decision-making skills does nothing - until someone tells them what to do.
