12 Team Management Practices Warm up includes static and dynamic stretching (the benefits to young children are to develop the habit of stretching prior to physical exertion) Move through practice plan at a steady pace, too much free time and players will find ways to entertain themselves

13 Team Management Training Sessions Allow players plenty of water! Players should be allowed to get water when they need it - not necessarily only when a break is scheduled Game Day Make sure players know where and when they should show up (30-45 min. prior to game)

14 Team Management Game Day Have medical release forms or don t play (referee s are not responsible to ensure you have the forms, you are) Have equipment to warm up and a decent game ball if you are Home team Ensure players remove ALL jewelry. Band aids over earrings are not an option

16 Objectives and Principles Objective is a goal or purpose, what is to be achieved. Principles of Play are what is needed to attain your objectives Players must understand both the objectives for the game and how to apply the principles to accomplish the objectives

17 Objectives and Principles The players are taught the objectives and principles through training sessions, not during the game The ones who also need to understand these but will be the most difficult to teach is the parents

18 Objectives of the Game Only two: Win! Do not finish 2 nd

19 Training Overview Objectives of the Game Attacking Objectives Score Advance the Ball Maintain Possession Defending Objectives Prevent Scoring Delay the Opponents Regain Possession

28 Systems of Play U-12 9vs Strikers Defenders Midfielders Goalkeeper G

29 Systems of Play G

30 Systems of Play G

31 Goalkeepers Position/Players Characteristics Agility Quick reflexes Sure hands Courage to get the ball Ability to distribute the ball Ability to read the game And want to play in goal

32 Position/Players Characteristics Defenders Who defends? When? The other team has the ball

33 Position/Players Characteristics Attackers Who attacks When? Our team has the ball!

34 Positions Position The place a player stands every time play is started: Examples from other sports - Football Before each snap of the ball the left tackle is always on the left next to the left guard, the center always snaps the ball, etc. Baseball The outfielders and infielders are always in their positions prior to the pitch

35 Positions Positional Responsibilities (Player responsibilities) What s needed from a player during the attack or in defense is this. Make relative decisions based on:

36 U-12 Coaching Course Goal Attac king Opponent Teammate Time Up a Goal Down a Goal Goal Defending What is the score? Me And read it all in seconds!

37 Positions What makes soccer different from other more traditional American Sports? With very little exception (kickoffs and penalty kicks) play is not stopped after the attack fails, the defense wins the ball, or even when the ball crosses the touch or goal lines and has to be put back into play.

38 Positions Coaches must teach all players that they need to play both sides-of-the ball. We all attack and we all defend! When a player makes a creative run up field but possession is lost the whole team must now defend

39 Positional Responsibilities POSITION Goalkeeper Defender OWN TEAM WITH BALL Begin Attack Maintain Possession Advance Ball Opponent with Ball Stop scoring attempt Stop scoring attempt Regain possession Midfielder Strikers Advance ball Maintain Possession Score Advance ball Maintain possession Delay attack Regain possession Regain possession Delay attack

41 Teaching Methods P.I.E. Positive Instructional Encouraging Anyone (players/parents/referees/employees/etc.) who only hears what they do wrong will start to believe they cannot do anything right and lose the will to try

42 Teaching Methods Say, Show, Do and Review Say Explain the skill or technique Show Demonstrate the skill or technique Do Have players perform the skill Review Review, correct (in a positive manner) and confirm proper technique

43 Teaching Methods See, Show, Say See Coaches must observe players performance during games and practices to see if proper technique or method is being used (also known as the Coaching Eye ) Show Describe what you see the player doing that needs to be corrected and show them the correct way Say Once a player(s) performs the skill, tactic, or strategy effectively let them know! Say it out loud for all to hear...
