PROGRAM OVERVIEW
This stage is an optimal window for train-ability of speed, flexibility, and skills. Physical training should focus on developing these qualities. Technical training focuses on building a greater repertoire of soccer-related movements within the context of basic soccer games. Skill demonstration is very important, and the players learn best by “doing.” Players move from being self-centered to self-critical, and they have a high arousal level during basic skills training.

This is also an important time to teach basic principles of play and to establish a training ethic and discipline. Repetitions are important to develop technical excellence, but creating a fun and challenging environment is still essential for stimulating learning

Playing situations work best for teaching understanding and building basic game sense.

  • Emphasis is on fun, exercise, teamwork, continued skill development;
  • Encourage decision making;
  • Teach basic principles of play, teach simple combinations;
  • During games everyone should play equal time;
  • Try all team positions, including goalkeeping;
  • No scores or standings are kept;
