U5-U7 Coaches Drill Book and Reference Guide
The goal of this guide is to provide AYSA volunteer coaches the tools necessary to run an effective soccer practice for U-5 through U-7 age groups without a soccer background.
These drills are meant to be a guide and to provide ideas to our volunteer coaches. Creativity is encouraged. There can be countless variations to these drills allowing for coaches to never have two of the same practices – important in keeping younger players engaged in the game.
This guide is meant to be used in direct correlation with the AYSA Soccer Coaches Reference Guide. The drills below are coded so that you can easily tell which drills will affect which ‘Goals’ in the reference guide.
For instance, a drill labeled PW1B is considered a good drill to use with Pee-Wee players, specifically on improving their Gross Motor Skills (Pee Wee, #1, Pt. B). By using the two guides in unison, coaches can easily create practice plans that keep the kids moving.
It is our hope that with your help these guides can be fine-tuned, incorporating more of what works while eliminating what does not. Without our parent volunteers, Amherst Youth Soccer simply cannot meet the needs and goals of the kids in our community. We thank you for your commitment to OUR children!
