Helping young players through player evaluations improve is my #1 concern when coaching young teams. I like to look at the potential of the player and encourage that potential rather than what they are currently as a player. All players can improve if encouraged properly.
Evaluations are a great way to encourage this potential and get the players working on the individual Soccer skills
or game that the player needs to learn to go to the next level.
Evaluations can be used for camps, teams, private sessions, coaches.

In my opinion the best time to give a player evaluations is when they are about to finish a season, prior to the kids heading to try outs or when they are already playing at a higher level.
Be honest and evaluations go smoothly...
When setting up evaluations...
I can generally get through with evals in two practices...
The four phases of a soccer game are...
When we work with young players the fitness component always comes last because the kids will get fit playing small sided games and working with the ball. At the older ages the players will add running components and fitness work into their training.
aim with the player evaluation is to get the kids to understand what they have
to do not only when they come to practice but when they are away from
practice on their own...the motivated players practice on their own, play indoor, futsal or yard ball to make themselves better.
