How can I stop my under 11 girls from mucking around?

How can I stop my under 11 girls from mucking around at training? I have sat them down to talk with them and they say yes yes and then bang stupid behaviour

the best way i find is to keep them busy not to much standing around time and threaten that those who muck around at training will be sitting on the side lines on Saturdays lol.

I have myself and another coach and we split the girls up. Goes well until the one girl mucks around again. She likes to take over and make up her drills. But on game day she is awesome. Why cant they train like they play.

I am coaching two teams, a year 6 and year 7 team. The potential for mucking around is huge! I have overcome this with the threat of making anyone who isn't concentrating on what's happening gets to run twice around the whole facility! We practice on a set of courts that is 3 x 3 (9 courts in total), no-ones had to run yet!!

with coaching always comes the headache of what the consequences can be without causinf too much disruption personally I have found that if one plays up then not only do they get punished the whole squad and then you will find their peers soon pull them into line i.e. all douing 20 pushups or all doing suicides.This theory has never failed me yet and it also makes everyone accountable
