This section is filled with session ideas and drills for our West Van FC U7
coaches. The Technical Lead for your age group will update the videos throughout
the season so make sure to check back regularly.
A fun activity to help warm-up your players. Please, also take in how enthusiastic the coach is, and how he interacts with his players. The best tip how to coach at this age is, bring an incredible amount of high energy to entertain your players.
Another great and fun warm-up to do with your players. Please, make a slight modification to just have the Tagger hold the pinnie in their hand and then drop it on the floor once the tag another player, then the new tagger needs to pick it up before trying to tag someone else.
One attacker versus one defender, attacker must try to successfully dribble through any the gates while the defender must try to stop them. Change after 45 seconds to make the defender become the attacker and vice-verser
You can modify, Coach passes the ball into the player’s feet, with a good first touch the player sets themself up for a shot on goal. Once they shoot they become a goalie. Then once they finish being a goalie they grab a new ball and head back to your line to wait for your upcoming shot.
