How do you know what to coach to your players and when to coach it? What might you expect a player to be able to do or understand at U12 that they couldn’t at U11?

It’s a huge question and one we get asked a lot which is why we developed our EasiCoach soccer curriculum

The EasiCoach soccer skills curriculum contains ready-made, age-appropriate, safe training activities that help grass roots coaches like you teach core soccer skills to young players.

They are called EasiCoach because they are simple and easy to follow. EasiCoach coaching activities will help you to:

Quickly understand what it is you’re trying to achieve
See what you need to do from just a few words and pictures
Grasp the key dos and don’ts at a glance
Check you have all the equipment you need (never more than basics)
Cater for more or fewer players at your session
Speak to your players with confidence

But here’s what really great about the EasiCoach approach: follow all the materials in each manual, and your players will be learning the right skills for the right age group every season, progressing their learning in the most appropriate way.

What’s more, it’s not a completely prescriptive curriculum. Cover it at your own speed and in any order you choose.
