For this exercise you will need 4 cones and each player will need a ball. Soccer drills
for kids. Exercise Player Can Do: How to Coach Soccer
I will show you how the youth soccer drills will look and then we will go over how to
set up soccer drill and the key points soccer skills. My soccer players in the video are
probably going to be much older then your soccer players but it is for example purposes. Stephen says, “Wall Pass”. Alex says, “Wall
Pass”. Now let’s break it down coach soccer for how
you can set this up. All players need a ball and get in a line
behind me. Stephen, you come stand here as the example imaginary defender. Alex, you
stand here and be the soccer coach. Players, now in a game if there is a defender
in front of me should I always try to dribble past them? No What can I do? You can pass
and move around them and this what we call a wall pass, so watch this. Wall pass! Notice soccer coaches I don’t tell the players
what we do when a defender is in front of them, I ask them first. This engages their
mind and gets them thinking before I give them the answer. For example when a player
makes a mistake in a game instead of telling them what they did wrong, ask them what they
did wrong. If they give you the right answer, then you know they are learning and that is
progress. If they give you the wrong answer, then correct them, be positive and move on. Now let’s coach this to our players. Coaching
youth soccer. Key Points: Coaching Soccer
1. Communicate loud and clear by saying wall pass. 2. Sprint around defender, not in front of
them. 3. Teammate passes the ball in the space in
front of you. 4. Stay down at the other cone and once the
whole line has gone, then turn around and go the other way. Let’s do this one more time as an example
players. We will do this 3 times each way and then
move on. For the exercise we will not have a defender, we will use the cone as our imaginary
defender. What Player Could Be Doing Wrong: How to Coach
Youth Soccer If the wall pass looks slow it’s because the
teammate passing the ball is passing the ball behind the player making the run, not in front.
Play the ball in front of your teammate making the run. Bonus Tip! Youth Soccer
Keep the lines small! If you have 10 players and two coaches then don’t have one big line
of 10, make two smaller lines of five and use both coaches as passers. Big lines lead
to players getting bored and getting into trouble while waiting for their turn. When first doing these exercises I like to
have the coach be the passer. This way the exercise goes smooth and we limit bad passes
on the wall pass throwing off the learning process. As you do this exercise more and
more and players understand it have a player be the wall passer of the ball. After doing this soccer skill in practice
play a small sided game to goals or a scrimmage and give a bonus point when players make a
wall pass. Hope you enjoyed this Online Soccer Academy
