||Constructive Soccer - Principles of Play clinic
Coaching at the youth level is more a matter of teaching the game to young players than managing their soccer. Coaching the Principles of Play through small-sided games in both training sessions and on game-day will accelerate the players’ comprehension of constructive soccer. A key goal for coaching young players is to help them understand how soccer works. The Principles of Play form the basic tactical foundation of the game, and players' understanding can be accelerated by competing in small-sided games at training; and by encouraging constructive play during matches.
