Coaching Young Players

The most important aspect about coaching young children is to remember that they are children and all they want to do is have fun.

With the correct technique and direction young players can learn, develop and have fun at the same time.

Tips for new coaches

1. Try to plan every session and have some drills in mind in case your plans fail.

2. Enroll and regularly navigate through the Ajax Training System.

3. Teach the basics of football, passing, receiving and communication in isolation. 

4. Avoid making players line up for more than 2-3 minutes waiting for their turn. 

5. Always remember that we are coaching little kids who are just understanding and building their love for football. Never get angry or frustrated with them. Try to understand as coaches why things are not working and don’t forget you need to enjoy it as well. 

Hopefully you can use these simple and basic guidelines when you’re coaching your teams.
