There is massive amount of excellent free coaching information available on the internet. Many sites offer written plans while the newer video sites have a rapidly growing set of free instructional videos.

Successful coaches do the following:

  • Plan practices in advance and structure as follows:
    • Warm-up
      • Warm-up activity 1
      • Warm-up activity 2
    • Main body
      • Activity 1
      • Activity 2
    • Game (doesn't always have to be a scrimmage)
      • Game activity 1
      • Game activity 2
  • Choose a main topic/theme for the whole practice (ex: passing). All practice activities should support the main topic/theme
  • Choose age appropriate activities that teach the chosen topic
  • Choose activities that are efficient
  • Adjust activities through each iteration as needed to accomplish goals
  • No laps, no lines, no lectures
  • Create a fun learning environment
