Young players can often get bored by fitness exercises, they just want to play.
So keep their interest high when they come to training by giving a game from Michael Beale’s 64 Small-Sided Soccer Games manual. The games are a great way of giving your players a good workout.
Try this one at your next session:
Two teams of four players, one goal, one keeper and a large number of balls.
Play the game continuously for a set time period or until a set number of goals is scored.
