Some key points when conducting a practice:
- Try to avoid lines. A player in line learns nothing. If an excersize has lines try to have it running on two placeds on the field to get lines shorter.
- Yes your jr. high football coach was like mine and made us run laps. Give the players excercises or drill where they are running AND playing soccer.
- Give guidance, but let the game be the teacher. Give kids the oportunity to make decisions and find solutions. When you make comments make them short and sweet.
