Soccer Tots, 3- 5 years

Fun, fun and more fun!

This is a great age to start introducing soccer but its essential not to overload them with the rules and regulations of the game as this can become more instructional which results in more standing around and of course boredom. Fun games such as foxes and farmers, statues and tag to name but a few are much more beneficial as this teaches the kids how to change direction, jump, run, and chase.  All fun games should be started without a ball and then as the kids grow confident add a ball maybe carrying it first before asking them to run (dribble) with it at their feet.

Patience, Fun, High Energy and No Ego's are key for coaches to be successful at this age group and the less you can be like a coach and more like a clown the more successful the coach will be.
