Designing drills for AFL – applying a constraints-led approach

For those following some recent posts on training and the use of game-based activities (or “game-sense”, “tgfu” etc), I thought it might be useful to provide an example of a practical implementation. In the video presentation below I use Australian Football (AFL) and a handball game as a practical example of how to implement concepts such as “constraints-led approach” to training activities, “implicit learning” and “overload”.

Some of these terms you may, or may not, be familiar with. Either way, I hope this video is a valuable insight into how they can be applied to your training activities.








Below is further explanation from Damian Farrow on implicit and explicit learning……

For more information on these concepts I would suggest looking at:
