How often do you repeat a session?

Over the last 12 months i have been trying to make sure that no 2 sessions are the same. We train twice a week and sometimes it takes a while to understand a drill or objective so this led me to thinking would it be better to have a core amount of sessions and repeat over the season ?IF we train 50 sessions per year would it be better to have e.g 10 sessions that we rotate around so that when it comes round again the kids already have an understanding rather than create something new every time ?If i went this way and then further split this to 5 areas to focus on with 2 sessions for each focus i.e keeping possession would this be better than trying to create something new for every single session ? Obviously things would evolve so a session would maybe have something added but to have an amount of core session plans that rotate around over a period of time, is this the more effective way to develop ?

From my own experience of being coached and coaching myself, I've found it to be more rewarding when doing the same drills over a period of time (around 6 weeks) so you can see improvement and players can feel improvement. If you do a shooting drill for example, player A scores 1 out of 6 shots and by week 6 is scoring all of them, it shows scaleable improvement that both coach and child can see.

You can obviously change little things about the sessions and drills but I believe that keeping them similar improves the players.
