As somebody who has done a fair bit of it over the years, I’m running out of fresh ideas about different ways to coach the early years of players. Currently with the under 10’s and looking at ways of developing spatial awareness and making correct runs and support runs while attacking, while keeping the most important element, fun! Obviously some lads get it already, but would like to get the weaker kids on the same page if possible…
My questions are:
Are there any good online resources or youtube videos for these purposes? I’ve searched online but can find nothing of real use.
Is there an app for that?
What do you think is an appropriate age to start deploying tactical play?
