Guard player and counter cover

Pholo will be building a practice for your team focussed on the guard player and counter cover. We will be using a tool called XPS for our session design. XPS is the most comprehensive coaching software out there. It includes a playbook feature to make your own drawings, diagrams and animations to visualise your drills or games. A library to store all of your drills and exercises. An interactive calendar to start planning your next team practice by drag & drop from the library, logging attendance to keep up the stats and launching questionnaires to all of your players to request their training load or other feedback automatically following each training. We’ll show you how it works, but we’ll also make sure the chats and practice design sessions are useful to you if you do not want to use XPS yourself.
