“Lets Figure Out Positions”

Skill development at this stage should be well structured, positive and FUN; and should concentrate on developing the ABC’s of Agility, Balance and Coordination plus Speed. Coaches should create a stimulating learning environment where the atmosphere is about freedom and fun.

Learning to understand the movements going on around them is a critical skill to be developed at this age. Playing small-sided games, 3v3, 4v4 etc. can develop a player’s ability to read what others are going to do (the play) based on their movements.

Let your players make decisions, expose them to working out problems and finding their own solutions.


At this age goalkeepers can be introduced although players should play in all positions including goalkeeper. Again no scores or standings are maintained. Players will play a fair amount of time in each position.
