NSCAA Soccer Coaches Guide 5-7 Year Olds- Coaching Youth Soccer

The National Soccer Coaches Association of America is pleased to present this video collection of sessions, drills, games and activities to use for coaching youth soccer players. NSCAA staff coaches provide demonstrations of many different activities coaches can use to teach young players the skills they need to learn to play the game of soccer and have fun at the same time.

At this age the ball itself is the biggest opponent. The activities are heavily oriented towards dribbling, giving the soccer players as many touches on the ball as possible in their early years. Sessions include:

  • Dribbling moves
  • Passing and spacing
  • Shooting
  • Small sided games
  • Additional activities provided by American Youth Soccer Organization and Soccer Association For Youth
