Coach Resources

There are a number of places you can look to help you build coaching sessions and assist in planning for tournaments.

Remember the major factor when planning your sessions is the age of your players.  Different ages require different focuses.

Phases of Development

Foundation Phase (Ages 5-9) – The focus should be on ball mastery and allowing the players to be creative.

(Ages 10-11) – The focus starts to move towards working together as a team as well as continuing with mastering the ball.

Youth Development (Ages 12-16)  – Tactical knowledge and awareness is the focus along with encouragement to persist in improving technical abilities and creativity.
