U8 coaches: please bring your player, if possible, to participate in the live game demos. We will run through a mini-game with your players on the U5/6 fields to demonstrate game rules, then move to the U8 field to explain the differences in the game for the older age group. Make sure your player has shin guards and water.
The training will cover several aspects.
- The capabilities and needs of your age group
- The fundamentals that ALL ages should begin with
- Age-appropriate drills and games
- Live game demo, demonstrating game rules
