Favorite fun games teaches coaches how to introduce the fun into soccer practice. Favorite fun games were not a part of my coaching philosophy as a young coach. Everything we did had to be serious in order to learn how to play the game of soccer. Kids want to have fun!!
Don't get me wrong, I had a few fun games like knock out and some of the dribbling games, but I needed a broader resource.
That whole philosophy backfired on me so I started introducing fun games and my teams exploded. The kids still work hard, but they don't even realize they are working in my favorite fun games.
Take some of these favorite fun games to soccer practice and watch your kids have a blast as well as learn the game of soccer.
If you as a coach can get the balance between fun and training you will see a huge difference in your coaching, and your players response to your coaching will be much more positive.
