Under 8's coaching where do I start?

Hi, this is my first season coaching and I have an U8 team. Half the girls played last season and half the girls are new to the game. Where do I start? It looks like there is a great beginner coaching pack available but I am not sure if it would work for the little ones.

Hi Candice, the main points I would recommend when working with kids this age are to make sure they are having lots of fun and getting lots of touches of the ball (don't have lots of them waiting in a line). This pack will be a good starting point for some ideas. Remember at that age they won't have an attention span of more than 15 mins max, so make sure you're ready to move onto the next exercise or game when you see them flagging!
