Warm up exercises for u10s?

Does anyone have any good warm up exercises to do with u10 teams that involve a ball?

Scott Coach, England

Final session before Christmas - session ideas.

Basically, we had a fantastic performance last weekend, and on Saturday we've got training then a team meal straight afterwards, so I need a session where everyone will be included, everyone will enjoy, and everyone will leave with smiles on their faces. The lads love shooting and dribbling, so a session based on fun games including those techniques will be ideal.

Team Building drill for girls

Hi everyonehas anyone got a good team building drill i can use for a u15's girls team please?I have 18 girls signed on and they all attend training religiously, but we often have a split in the team as there are two groups from two different schools. They tend to train well together but during a match there is the odd occasion when they don't talk to each other or they only pass to their school mates...

How to train with intensity?

I coach a school girls 1st football team. In terms of having training intensity as we head into championship round, is there any drills or advice you can give me for ideas? I tell them to train during a drill like it's a game but think they need some other form to replicate an intense environment.

Getting your team to communicate on the field

I coach a high school team and I'm having a hard time reinforcing the habit of regular communication on the field between the players. Does any one have any drill ideas to help reinforce the importance of talking on the field?

William Yung Coach, England

Can you suggest the most fun drills for U10's?

We are looking at continuing from U5's with largely the same squad to now bring in a more fun element to the drills - Some serious but sometimes we just need to mix it up with a few games

Team thrashed every week - whe...

Team keep getting thrashed every week - where to start? Having been the sole coach/manager of a little league team for the past two years, this year I lost all my senior players. I was therefore presented with 10 brand new lads, some of whom have never played competitive football. We are 8 games in and my lads are getting thrashed every week. The main problems are that they cannot get the ball out of their half, positions are usually a mess, finishing and chance creation are non-existent, and they don't apply any pressure or are unable to tackle. The main problems are keeping the ball as a team, getting it in the opponents half and staying there, and creating/finishing chances. I only have 1 and a half hours a week with them. I don't really know what to do, and I'm a little desperate. Does anybody have any advice? Thanks for literally anything.

I have been using Sportplan now for 3 years and can honestly say that I have never repeated the same session twice. My girls are always focused and are improving every year. Thanks Sportplan.

Debbie Cross Australia

What a fantastic tool. The Chalkboard and session tools make an unbelievable difference in making training plans in both time and organization. I will be instructing all of my assistant coaches that this tool must be used for all sessions during the season, so that we may build a club coaching resource library.
