Use these plans to teach your players proper technique and better skill development. Don't be afraid to just stick to 3 or 4 basic plans (for an 8 or 10 year old) and always finish practice with a game. Today, coaching development courses stress that no one should ever use lines or to stand and pass a ball back and forth! Is that a re-creation of the game? NO. For efficiency in the short periods of time we have to teach, every child should have a ball as much as possible, everyone should always be involved in the activity and be moving. Ideally, you will start with simple, short instructions and with a buildup of 1v1 to 2v2 or 4v4 with a similar activity at each session with no pressure to ball under pressure.
