Practice Plans     The Practice Plans are organized by Player Age Groups and by Training Themes. Each Practice Plan is designed specifically to be age appropriate. Age groups are designated in even years (i.e. U6, U8, U10, etc.) but the sessions are also appropriate for the odd year preceding the age group listed (e.g. U6 practice plans are appropriate for U5 players). If you believe that your players need more or less challenge, feel free to try Practice Plans in an older or younger age group. But please understand that each Practice Plan has been developed to enhance the development of each player on your team.


The Coaching Manual     Massachusetts  Youth Soccer has partnered with The Coaching Manual, a unique online resource packed full of fun games, activities and expert advice that will help every coach deliver better coaching sessions. Together we've updated our practice plans for our U14-U18 teams for Spring 2014. Session activities are brought to life through 3D animations. You can access the full 10-week program, plus 25 videos from The Coaching Manual's session library, completely free at www.thecoachingmanual.com or by clicking The Coaching Manual's logo to the right.  Technical Director, Ian Mulliner, had this to say about the partnership, “As a State Association who tries puts its members first at every opportunity, we are delighted to partner with TCM and offer exclusive discounts to their first-class practices. We believe in striving for excellence in our sessions and The Coaching Manual will help us deliver that…with the knock on effect being more enjoyment for all of players.."
