Penalty Shoot Outs - The Dreaded Penalty Shoot Out

Steve Jenkins - Thursday, July 03, 2014

Now the World Cup knockout stage is in full we all have to endure the dreaded penalty shoot out. Hero or villain, sheer joy or total despair -   there in no middle ground.

The U12 team I coached were involved in a penalty shoot out in a pre-season tournament. Imagine what it was like for these 11 year olds. The shoot-out went to penalty number 10 so with the 2 goalkeepers, 22 players were involved. As parents and coaches this is a time where we really need to be on our very best behaviour. The kids who miss will feel bad. The main feeling they experience is "I don't want it to be me that messes up" .

If your are ever involved in this please consider both teams - especially if the kids are so young.
