I am Chris Brown owner of Coaching Kids Soccer.
If you are like most coaches I know, you look for soccer practice ideas and drills
that help you relate to your players so they can learn and enjoy soccer.
The Coaching Kids Soccer plan will give you a straight path to finding out
quickly how to effectively coach a youth soccer team, and...
You don't have to be an ex pro to coach youth soccer at the U6 - U12 age groups.
You will get all the information a coach needs to plan out a season to help you avoid the steep learning curve that most coaches go through, when you learn to understand kids and how to...
I have some good solutions to all these common challenges for you.
So lets get started...
Coaches no matter what your
experience as a soccer coach you can use Coaching Kids Soccer as a
guide to help coach young players to have fun, develop skills and apply them to
Take the worry out of planning soccer practice, looking for drills,
trying to teach skills, motivating players and chatting with parents.
let me ask you this coach...
Are you coaching a recreational, Academy or select team?
Coaching Kids Soccer has tips on skills, exercises and fun games for you.
Learn to teach in a fun and challenging way by injecting the fun and challenges
into your soccer practices and you will see the smiles on your kids
faces as they learn the game and soak up the skills.
Coaching requires good
demonstrations in practice. If you are new to soccer use your players
to demonstrate effectively or bring in a good soccer player to demo.
Kids will rise to the challenge of getting
their skill demos right, especially in front of their peers.
Use exercises that promote fun and learning like...
Encourage players to
learn skills and use the skills against an opponent?
By using good skill demonstrations and teaching using small sided games
and tactics in your soccer practice the kids will begin to exhibit
good habits and decisions in their games. Is it an overnight process? No,
but when the kids skill improvements and decision making shows up in practice, it's a great sign...
Why coaches should use small sided games?
When coaches teach in the small sided game formats (1v1, 2v2, 3v3 or 4v4) the
players get lots of touches on the soccer ball, decision making
chances and goal scoring chances - we like these.
The coach can use small challenges inside the small sided games. The games can be broken down into
small achievable challenges like completing 2 passes in a row or
beating a player 1v1. The
players build confidence and learn, plus it's fun!!
These challenges will motivate and inspire players and help them to play hard for their teammates, coach and parents...
Improve your coaching on
game day. Use dynamic warm ups not only to warm up but build skills. Use non complicated ways to teach your players and keep the game simple as well as
subbing and coaching.
How do you handle the post game chats? I like to see the kids walk away from the game with smiles on their faces.
Use all these topics to help your players build a team they can be proud of and this will go a long way to having...
Coaches, soccer training is not just practice and games. It's about
setting up a season, planning from A-Z, preseason, parent meetings,
league meetings, practice, games and tournaments.
Learn how to set up a schedule so your season runs smoothly and watch the smiles on your kids faces and happy...
