Are there any coaches on this thread?

I was wondering if there are any coaches on this thread. I am a youth coach from U9 to U12 boys and girls.

I coached girls this past year, but have been reassigned to boys from this point forward. I am looking forward to coaching boys again.

It would be nice to have a conversation with people and compare notes on training practices there to what we are doing here.

I think we only have 'Football Managers' here

I had to coach a U9 team some while when I was still active as a player, together with another teammate. But we focussed our trainings mostly on the standard stuff, like passing and dribbling. No use training them stuff like tactics and defending cause it was teaching monkeys to fly Impossible, so we just let them have fun.

At that age, it is still about the ball. So, yeah, we don't focus on tactics at that age either. I believe developmentally, kids don't start understanding tactics until about 11-12.

What size fields do they play for different age groups over there? Our kids are not getting to the big field, until U13 now.

U9-U10 - 6 v 6
U11-U12 - 8 v 8
U13 + - 11 v 11

It all starts getting serious when they reach 9 years. Not long a go I was playing at the age of 10 and was amazed at how structured small games were becoming. Teamwork skills start to develop a great deal at 9-10 years, which is when it becomes serious

hmm I coached an U8 team for 60 hours of community service (even though I did maybe 5 hours all together) but da girl gave me 60, when it was only supposed to be 40... hehe.. anyways I kinda tried 2 tell these damn kids how to play the game, but they didn't really seem interested.. so basically worked on dribbling passing, then 3v2..

Én soha nem felejtem,
Magyarnak születtem!

Itt élek Európa szívében, vízilabdában mi vagyunk a császárok és igenis nálunk élnek a világ legszebb női. Magyarország, én így szeretlek!

Tehetségben nincs hiány, hiszem hogy jó lesz még a magyar foci!

RIA,RIA, HungáRIA!!!

I think here it was until they are 11/12 years old they play 6 v 6, then they switch to full field 11 v 11

What is interesting here in the US is we have what are called "Carpet Bagging" coaches from England. Guys from England coming over with big credentials from England. (Carpet Bagging is a term used to describe Northern oppportunists that invaded the south after the Civil War)

Here in the United States, we are trying to teach technical abilities of the Brazilians with the organization of the Dutch. So, most clubs and US Soccer are trying to rid themselves of the English influence on our game and transform ourselves into our own style.

Tactics are 9-10 are to the detriment of a players technical development, which I believe even the English are starting to now acknowledge needs to be reconsidered.

At my club, we focus purely on technical ability at that age, making sure our kids have confidence with the ball and are willing to take on players 1v1, 2v1 on the dribble. So far, it seems to be working.

I think the French got it right when the director of youth development fired youth coaches that focused on winning and not player development. It is one of the contributions that has made the French program one of the best in Europe now along with the Dutch and the Portuguese.

(The current US plan was written by Carlos Queroz of Man Utd).

Bentex will be happy to hear this. I have good news for me. I will be coaching boys again at my club. I will have U11 boys next fall.

We play 8 v 8 at U11 here. We have 3 teams for this age group. I will be coaching one of the teams.

It is exciting for me because I enjoy coaching boys more than the girls I had this past year. (Sorry ladies, a man needs a PHD in psychology to coach girls). With boys, you can get on their case and not see their eyes well up with tears.

Also, our club has joined a partnership with Glasgow Celtic and also Liverpool to do private trainings at our club. I got to hang out with Glasgow coaches yesterday and learn about some of the training techniques.

Before the session, we were taking shots on goal. The old man taught them a thing or 2. (They taught me too).
