Teasers:

A training session is just the expression of the coach and what he thinks his role is.

Within each team there can be 20 different game models because of the players.

Should coaches see themselves as designers (architects of an environment)?

Can we design context to create situations where the player decides so that they can connect their intentions with actions?

What coaches are doing with players is more or less what governing sports bodies, or federations or coach education institutions are doing with the coaches.

We can possibly learn more (about football) from attending a seminar on culture than one given by a professional coach
