2 LNYSA Season Coaching Goal: To have all of your players register to play soccer again next season. How to Meet Our Goal: 1) Practice age/developmentally appropriate activities 2) Create a safe environment for all players 3) Build a positive and supportive community around the team Guiding Principles: 1. The Three L philosophy a. No Lines b. No Laps c. No Lectures 2. Be positive a. Look for ways to provide positive feedback to all of your players during each practice and game. The more encouragement they get the better they will feel about themselves and their confidence in the game will grow. Your parents should follow this same principle. 3. Games over drills a. No one enjoys drills, but that doesn t mean we don t teach the basic skills required to develop our young players. Adding an element of game or fun to each activity will keep kids engaged and learning. Characteristics of Games Dynamic Free movement Requires decision making FUN Characteristics of Drills Static Standing in lines No/little thought required BORING

3 4. Be organized a. Have a written practice plan (always plan 1 extra activity) b. Set up your field before practice begins c. Have pinnies/bibs laid out so children can grab easily What is Age Appropriate for a 6U/7U Player? Constantly in motion Short attention span (a few minutes) Easily distracted Egocentric (individually oriented) Easily bruised psychologically Primitive eye-foot coordination Little concern for teammates Balance on dominant foot No sense of pace; they run until they drop Ways to Train a 6U/7U Player: Give brief direction; repeat when necessary Various short activities (5-12 mins) Frequent water breaks min training session Teach mostly technical skills (dribbling, shooting, passing, throw-ins, etc), and VERY BASIC tactical (which direction, basic positioning, goal kicks and corner kicks, etc) We are going THIS way! Activities Checklist: We ve provided recommended activities for each week of practice below, but if you come up with your own drills or activities, ask yourself: Are they fun? Are they organized? Is there a clear objective? Are all the players involved with maximum participation? Do players have the opportunity for decision making and creativity? Is there positive, age-appropriate feedback?
