“Discover how to develop the skills of your players with insights from the Assistant Academy Director of an EPL Club”
Paul Heffer has a long history with West Ham United, first joining as a junior player. In 1967 he made his professional debut against Nottingham Forest. Unfortunately, injury brought a premature end to his playing career after just fifteen appearances for the Hammers. However, Heffer’s passion for the game wasn’t diminished and he immediately threw himself into coaching. Over the course of the next four decades Heffer progressed to coach at various levels at the club and was eventually appointed Assistant Academy Director. Heffer is now responsible for overseeing the developing of West Ham’s youth players into elite professionals, trained and drilled to play in one of the most competitive and demanding leagues in the world.
What’s covered in Attacking with Speed and Vision
Attacking with Speed and Vision is a video series focused on developing the awareness, decision making and reactions your players need to be able to get the ball to your forwards quickly. Presented by a coach with extensive experience at West Ham United’s youth academy, this video series covers all the core skills your players need to always move with the ball forwards – not backwards.
The session starts by focusing on the mechanics of a mini game, which Heffer uses to demonstrate all the key principles of moving the ball quickly, with speed and vision. This includes ensuring that players always look forwards and make the right decisions on which player to pass to. It also requires that players off the ball are constantly thinking about where they need to be in order to create passing options.
As the session progresses, Heffer highlights other key aspects of moving the ball quickly to the forwards. This includes encouraging players to give each other instructions on where to play the ball, checking your shoulder for opponents and making the right decision on whom to pass to.
Heffer then introduces safe zones in which players cannot be tackled. These are used at youth coaching level to give players the confidence to play the ball into pockets on the wings.
The game then expands to an 11v11, with players only allowed to make one touch when playing the ball backwards. This encourages players to keep advancing up the pitch and to practice the session’s core principles of always moving forwards and making the right decision on which player to pass to.
