Here are some street soccer games that are kid friendly and fun. The kids must be able to experiment with the ball when there is no one telling them what to do.
Check out these young players, coaching sessions and professionals training...see if you can get your kids to implement some of these ideas on their own.
A great way to develop players is indoor soccer because the players are in a small sided games with lots of touches and tight spaces.
Three and in
I learned this street soccer game in the school yard in South Africa. We used to play for hours on end with no coach.
Equipment: Need up to three players or more and a goal.
Make up your own version and have fun with it!!! :)
Hit the cross bar
Need access to a soccer goal...
Variation: strike the ball and hit the net or the post with no bounce.
Great street soccer game for working on chipping or striking the soccer ball.
Cross and in
Need access to a goal...
Great game for improving crossing and finishing skills.
The kids need a rebound wall...
Variation: Wall soccer can also be played individually if the player just wants to improve aspects of skills.
The player can work on passing, first touch, volleys, thigh control, turning, chest control and soccer shooting.
The player can combine skills like shooting and trapping, and dribbling the ball. The player strikes the ball off the wall and controls the ball off the bounce. Learn more about soccer skills to help the players get better.
An all time classic street soccer game! All you need is a tennis court. If you don't have a tennis court you can use a line on the soccer field with cones for boundaries, or you can purchase a soccer tennis net to set up on your practice field.
To start the game...
Advanced game: The players only have one bounce and limited touches to get the ball back over the net. This game is great for the taking balls out of the air, soccer juggling, soccer volleys, and headers. Enjoy your coaching!
