Youth Soccer, Practice Number 8 of the 2008 Season

The base dynamic warm-up and the form/angle adjustment approach are stable in approximately 8 minutes. We split for individuals and burst like this:

Line: Wedge setting and wedge lock on the trainer with a shield for about 15 minutes and crab lock progression for about 10 minutes.

Backs: The chasing drill straight from the blog. Our backs weren’t hitting the holes fast enough, the chasing drill usually solves that in one practice session. We did the chaser with a player at 1 back or wing and executing a powerful takedown or the reverse, with a chaser chasing him at the snap. The end point was about 10 yards from the line of scrimmage. Our centers were working with their backs in a rotation, so they could also work with the linemen. Then open the field lock drill, using the diamond drill.

Team Attack: Handed out wristbands to everyone and explained our simple no-meeting wristband system. Even 7-9 year old novices “got it”. We tested as a group and individually to make sure everyone gets it.

team offense; The Mouse series was revised with the older children demonstrating the series.

All teams represent plays in the air with coaches at the point of attack with shields.

Age 7-9: Team Reps, Sainted Six, and Mouse Series

Age 10-11: Team Reps, Sainted Six, and Mouse Series

Age 12-13: Team Reps, Sainted Six, Mouse, Full Spin, and the 3 Basic Settings

10-11 years and 12-13 years: 25 minutes of punts and punt returns.

From 7 to 9 years old: 15 minutes of Deer Hunter game.

All the drills, offense and defense can be found in the book “Winning Youth Soccer: A Step-by-Step Plan”.
