    This is unbelievable it was after i signed up on your site that i know that subjecting the players for sprinting after the training will not let them put up their best performance during training . Please kindly tell me or show me how i can combine conditioning with my training .If i may ask you what is conditioning i need the full explanation your response is highly needed urgently .

    Hi there, just wanted to add a mention of motivational patches to your list of treats and reward. The patches are a really effective way of rewarding and encouraging young soccer players.
    These patches can be used to celebrate good behaviour, recognise progress, courage, good defence skills, great teamwork and a range of other positive attributes. Younger players really enjoy collecting them and they can be worn on their soccer strips. Go to http://www.footballpatches.co.uk to find out more.

    Hi there! This is kind of off topic but I need some help from an established blog. Is it hard to set up your own blog? I’m not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty quick. I’m thinking about creating my own but I’m not sure where to begin. Do you have any points or suggestions? Appreciate it

  17. seo says:

    Good day! I could have sworn I’ve been to this site before but after checking through some of the post I realized it’s new to me. Nonetheless, I’m definitely glad I found it and I’ll be bookmarking and checking back often!

  18. FREDRICK says:

  19. Jenny says:

    hey i really like this article (even though i’m not a coach but a player) and i find it that the other articles and info on this site is very useful. The thing is my dream has always been playing soccer for the Matildas, but i don’t have the time or chance to play weekend soccer for a local club to become a better athelete and am really desperate to achieve my goal. Would it be possible to write an article to help me and others that are in the same situation as i am? It would be greatly appreciated thank-you. =)

    I agree with everything but the competition part. My U10 son’s coach believes in making kids compete in practice, and “punishing” the “loser” as he says. My son was almost in tears a couple practices ago because he lost 8 one-on-ones in a row and had to run lengths. He tries as hard as he can, but he just doesn’t have the size or skills to beat the bigger, stronger kids. Competition can be good, but with kids it can easily cross the line to damaging their confidence and enjoyment of soccer. Ironically, the coach doesn’t like to give players positions. He wants them to figure out for themselves where to be on the field so they can develop their creativity. Yet, by pitting players against each other in practice, the kids who typically “lose” and have to run lengths of the gym are scared to take the risks necessary to be creative.

  21. Dave says:

    Ken – You have to ask yourself, if you were your son on that team, would it be “fun” for you? That would be a horrible situation for any kid to be in, especially 8 times! I’d beg my parents to let me quit soccer.

    There’s not much you can do except ask the club to put your son on another team. You could complain to your club about it, but that’s likely going to make it worse for you son. You could talk to the coach, but he seems pretty set in his ways (likely HIS kid is one of the faster kids that doesn’t have to run lengths, but maybe if it was his kid, he wouldn’t do it). You could spend extra time with your son on weekends/evenings doing drills and I would STRONGLY recommend you use positive encouragement with him, as he needs to hear he’s doing good and did great at something.

    But if it was me, I’d put my son on another team rather than risk him “hating” the game.

  22. This is a fantastic soccer information that is all and all.

    This is beyond immagination.

    I love it, will always subscribe for continous refreshing of my mind in the game I played in past and still in love with the game.

    Thanks for this valuable information.

    Today, while I was at work, my sister stole my iPad and tested to see if it can survive a thirty foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation.
    My iPad is now destroyed and she has 83 views.
    I know this is entirely off topic but I had to share it
    with someone!

    Did any of you actually read the article? Lay-up drills? Rebounds? Clearly copied and pasted from some basketball coaching source…
