How Much Water Should You Drink to Hydrate for a Football Match? Paul Banta

Football is strenuous and requires a lot of physical stamina, and proper hydration will reduce your risk of injury as well as help you maintain peak fitness levels after the match. You need to consume more water and fluids than normal while playing soccer to make up for lost fluids due to perspiration, helping you stay focused and in a high level of physical condition.

As coaches, we tend to focus on training the physical aspects of our players while ignoring many of their mental and emotional developmental needs. Paul Banta

Although you may not have time to engage in extensive “mental coaching” with each of your players, you can engage them in the process of reflection, self-evaluation, and transformation by working with them to set goals.

A Christian coach who has declared to be a leader/disciple needs a vital, very personal, growing relationship with the Living Father. Being an effective leader/disciple is hard; doing life without the Lord leading you is impossible. The best Coach is a truth teller, so know the Person, who is Truth.

Coaching Education - Winning Matches (Concepts to Help You Coach)

Click Here – Concepts to Win Matches


The teams I’ve coached over the years always played better in the ‘final attacking zone’ when I finally gave up most of my antiquated training methods and exercises that never proved to be successful in match condition, because for the most part they were not match related enough and they were not functional for the players to create and score goals.  Paul Banta


My training sessions were not only useless for my players and we never got those goals to win more matches. When you play the game
you play to win by more goals than your opponent and as coaches and player we never ever play to tie a match, so you need goals to win.
It’s that simple. All this was entirely my fault after, all I was the leader and coach.
