Football NSW is pleased to announce its first of its newly created “An Evening with” sessions, kicking off with one of Australia’s most foremost football coaches and educators, Dr Ron Smith to be held on Monday, 4th of March at Valentine Sports Park.
‘Smudger’ as he is affectionately known to his fellow peers has been one of the key contributors to Australia’s ‘golden generation’ as a former Head of the Australian Institute of Sport football program that witnessed many graduates progress through to various national team squads.
In the modern era, Game Analysis is increasingly becoming a critical component of team and match preparation.
In this special exclusive presentation at Football NSW, Ron will provide a comprehensive analysis of goal scoring trends from both the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia and 2019 AFC Asian Cup in the UAE, and discuss implications for coaching and designing training sessions.
For many years, Ron has studied the game, focusing on goal scoring and where goals come from and how they are scored across many seasons of the Hyundai A-League, various World Cup and other major tournaments.
He recently completed his PhD doctorate on this subject.
Football NSW’s Head of Football Peter Hugg was eagerly anticipating the not to be missed coaching seminar by one of Australia’s finest ever coach educators.
“As part of our commitment to helping improve the quality and knowledge of coaches and other technicians involved in the game, and to support all across the coaching landscape, we intend to do these ‘an evening with’ seminars regularly.
“The simple idea is to cater for the hunger for knowledge that many in the coaching fraternity have by bringing them face to face with some of our best practitioners and experts in our game, whether that be national team coaches, Hyundai A-League or Westfield W-League coaches, leaders in other fields or visiting overseas guests.”
Future sessions will be promoted as they are organised.
