Soccer dad writes in his blog about using patches as recognition for his soccer team. I thought it was a great idea! When he started the program he gave patches to his girls for achieving the first time. This year he gave a patch for doing something over a number of matches. The goal here was to get the girls to perform over a number of matches. He has 9 different patches he gives.
He gives patches for juggling, assists, goals, different soccer moves, leadership, intensity, volley, support, blood and champions patch.
Do you give patches? What do you give your players patches for? Other methods for getting them to reach for the stars? Leave your ideas in the comments and we will post when we have more ideas on getting more out of your players.
Dan provides patches for soccer teams through his work; Bux-Mont Awards
