Under 7's warm up and drills.

Hi I've just joined sportplan as I have been asked to help coach some under 7's at the primary school on Saturday morning. Can anyone recommend any good warm up and drills that will be fun, easy to learn and help teach the basics to both boys and girls?

Hello Marcus and welcome to Sportplan,

The key thing for a good warm up is to get your players' heart rate up and their minds focused on the session ahead - ideally through fun games to keep them engaged and working hard.

To try and help you get started and find some warm up ideas I've attached some useful links:

  1. Warm Up Drills found using the search bar (top right). Farmers and Foxes is a particularly good warm up game for young players.
  2. Answer from the archive: Basic warm up routine for primary PE
  3. Answer from the archive : Looking for an ideal football warm up

Hope this helps - by all means have a look around the site, drills are all organised by category so have a click around and if you're feeling adventurous why not try drawing your own drills using the chalkboard tool!

All the best,
The Sportplan Team
