How do I stop my shooters from stepping?

I have recently started coaching a u/12 team, something very new to me as I have always coached older kids or adults. My shooters make a lot of stepping errors specifically after a spilt landing. How do I help them remember which foot they put down first?

if they are landing in split then its not a case of remembering which foot went down first, as the whole point of spliting is to landing with both feet down together, its a case of making sure they land balanced, with both feet landing at the same time.  

generally to fix this very common error, is to make the landing really obvious at first.  so a big jump up and land in a small split.  make sure they land balanced and even.  once they feel the difference keep increasing the split until they get it right.

also the timing of the pass could have something to do with it.  its not often that its too quick, but it might be in this case if they are splitting too slowly.  something else to consider.

hope that helps.
