A Message to the Parent Soccer Coach

All coaches have three major headaches: dealing with time, space and fitness. Here are a few simple ideas to get the most out of your practices.

Time: It's always at a premium, so make sure your transition time between drills is minimal. Organize a fun practice at the start - players will pressure their parents to be on time for fear of missing out. Start practices on time and don't wait for latecomers!

Space: I've shown the set-up for cones, assuming you'll have limited space. Please consider the fields you use. Change the location of each practice to maintain the quality of your field. Don't practice in a goal area unless you really need to, because these areas wear out quickly. Fitness running should always take place off the field of play, especially for sharp turns.

Fitness: Players under 12 should use a ball whenever possible. It's much easier to run with a ball than without it. The ball gives tired feet a reason to keep performing! As a general rule children up to age 10 will not need to stretch - you can just do a general ball warm-up. But I always point out to athletes of any age the benefits of stretching to prevent injury.

Finish every practice with a scrimmage. We're here to play! In English class you learn letters to make words, then put words together to make sentences, then use sentences to tell a story. Drills and practices are our letters and words, and the game is our story.

I coach my son's team and over time have acquired a number of training manuals. I like this one a lot because it is very comprehensive, it covers all the main points and it helps you organize yourself, your team, and your practices. If you can only buy one manual now, get this one.

I was intimidated when my neighbor asked me to be an assistant coach next season. This DVD assuaged my fears and made me feel like that I will be able to contribute both on and off the field.
