Coaching Tips, Help, and Links
As you coach, one of the fundamentals that we'd like you to remember is that you should always try to avoid lines. When your players stand in lines, they are getting fewer touches on the ball. Want to know how to avoid lines? Click on this link to read Soccer 101's Advice on Avoiding Lines in Practice. In that illustration, the difference is 5 minutes vs. 30 seconds of soccer development. This is very good advice and you should work to structure your practice to almost always avoid lines (not always possible, but make it a goal of yours). Also, when players stand in line they will tend to misbehave and lose focus. If each one has a ball at their feet, they're ALL active and will be easier for you to manage. This is important at the younger ages!
Make sure to structure your practice:
1. Keep it Fun
2. Have a Plan - write it down and know your drills before you start
3. Arrive Early
4. Use Small Sided Games , Why Small Sided Games?
5. Use Progressions
Soccer Drills For Your Practice:
Having a set of drills that you use for practice that you have studied and know well is important. Keep the practice flowing and keep it moving. Avoid down time, talking, and excessively long water breaks. A good practice gets every one of your players 1000+ touches on the ball (yes, divide that by 60 minutes). Click here and study these drills for your practice. Pick some of these that are age appropriate and structure your practices around them. Keep in mind that you need to develop both dribbling and passing skills.
The Offsides Rule:
The offsides rule can be difficult to learn and explain, this is a great visual summary of the offsides rule.
Coach Clinics - if you don't have a license you need one to coach. These classes will get you a license. If you coach kids older thatn U12 that is not a problem, you can still take the U10/12 module. The cost of the class will be reinbursed by Klein. All you have to do is attend the class and then fill out a reinbursement form at the Klein office.
