Other Resources

 

There are a number of other great resources on the internet for successful youth soccer coaching.  Remember, we want to get each player as many touches on the ball as possible during your practice, so choose activities that allow all players to be involved.  Remember to avoid the the "L's":  Lines, Laps, and eLimination.  Below are a few of the better resources I have found that might be helpful to you.
