"Coaching Kids Soccer - A resource for the soccer coach teaching U6-U12
soccer players"

Coaches often ask these types of questions when jumping into coaching kids soccer.

  • Understand why players should learn how to dribble first and then learn how to pass the soccer ball?
  • My team can't pass the soccer ball very well. How do I teach the passing game?
  • How do we get younger players to kick properly to take goal kicks, corners or just score goals?
  • How to coach tactics using small sided games.
  • Why would we teach soccer juggling to kids?
  • Why does the soccer ball just bounce away when the kids try to control the ball?

All these little soccer topics can be mastered when the kids master their soccer techniques.

Coaches can get information on how to teach the players to dribble, pass and kick the soccer ball with the correct soccer techniques, so they can master some common situations listed above.

Coaching kids soccer's goal is to help the novice coach, academy coach or the coach that just wants to add to his or her knowledge base.

Here are some common issues that all coaches face.

  • Coaching soccer skills so the skills translate to the success in game situations?
  • Making skills sessions fun so the players
    learn in a fun, challenging way.
  • Teaching players in small sided games so they get the ball more. This helps enhance fun, skill and reading the game.
  • Never played the game? Learn how to make an effective demonstration.
  • Coaching on game day and keeping it fun.

I have developed my own philosophy to deal with these topics over 20 years of training soccer teams. Hope you enjoy!!
