It is a reflective cycle used by professionals to analyze the situation. Also, another reason why I applied this model was not only to analyze the whole situation but also provide analysis that would help me and the team in improving our performances in the future. Well-structured planning and organization allow the coach and the players to focus on the important tasks of coaching football while taking away last-minute crises (Trimble, 2005). When I was appointed the coach, the first thing I did was to know more about the performances of the Club.

Last season, the team finished fourth and won five games out of nine games, therefore making a loss of four games in total. Therefore, I decided to change certain strategies and ask the restructure certain tactics that would enable the team to perform well. Our aim was to win all the matches in the new season. The first step in the Gibbs Reflective Model is the description of the event. I asked the team to first do some pre-season warm-up matches. I felt that the ball style of play did not suit the team, so I asked them to switch to simple passing.

I made this decision based on the capabilities of the players, and I predicted that simple passing would be an effective tactic at keeping possession of the ball and exerting pressure on the opponents. I made an assessment of the problems the team faced, that was impairing their ability to perform well. One of the impediments to success that the team faced was lack of concerted efforts. The most important thing football is learning to work as a team (McFee 2008).

There was a too much individual effort, and the downside was that these efforts did not cumulate together in an organized and comprehensive team play. Since football is a team sport, the efforts of individual players should homogenize together in achieving two aims: attacking the opponent team  and building a strong defense of our own team.
