You never know when if you’ll be coaching one day.  If so, wouldn’t it be great to have a binder full of exercises and training sessions already prepared?  If you don’t plan on coaching, it still wouldn’t hurt to take notes of what you did as this is a great way to continually learn about the game of soccer.  You’ll also be able to track your progress more accurately.

Even the very best of professionals take notes on their coaches methods.  Dimitar Berbatov of Manchester United is one example of this.  He soaks up Sir Alex Ferguson’s knowledge and then writes it down afterward.  To learn more on this from click here.

After every training session write down what exercises and drills you did.  Take notes on the key points that the coach was stressing.  In addition, take notes as to what the pre-game, halftime and post game discussions were.

Do not overlook any of this as it will all become useful down the road.  Coaches say a lot and it can be difficult to remember everything, just like in school.  As well, taking notes will help you become a better student of the game and increase your soccer IQ.
