Stages

Stages (Initial) U6, U7, U8

Very young players from 5 to 8 years of age love to play. Therefore, all practices should be based on fun games.

Players must spend the maximum time possible in contact with the ball and experiment by themselves.

For the first time the player has to build a relationship with other players. Give different responsibilities to the players in order to develop a sense of team.

Basic motor skills like walking, running or jumping have to be combined with ball handling and ball control.

Stages (Basic) U9, U10, U11, U12, U13, U14

Pre-pubescent players from age 9 to 14 years have a special ability to learn. Therefore, this is the right age to work on specific soccer techniques and skills. Developing good technique is essential at this age.

1v1 and 2v1 attaching and defending situations are important to develop individual skills as well as the passing techniques to develop the necessary team game.

Use small-sided games to develop basic attacking and defensive principles. Other important aspects of tactical training are possession, combination play, transition and finishing in the final third, as well as zonal defending. Players will rotate in two or three different positions to avoid early specialization. Speed, coordination, balance and agility are the main physical aspects to improve at this stage.

Stage and Age Group (Tactical) 

Distribution by age: Attacking principles, possession, transition, combination play, switching play, counter attacking, playing out from the back, finishing-final third, defending principles, zonal defending, pressing, retreat & recovery, compactness. U6-U8 no emphasis in this area. U9-U14 emphasis on all areas

 

Stage and Age Group (Technical) 

Distribution by age: Passing and receiving, running with the ball, dribbling, turning, shooting, ball control, heading, 1v1 attacking, shielding the ball, receiving to turn, crossing and finishing, 1v1 defending.
