In order to make practices run smoothly and be fun, it is important to have a basic understanding of the intellectual, emotional, and physical developmental stage of the players we are coaching. Here are some typical characteristics of the Under 10 player:

  • Attention span lengthens and they start to show the ability to sequence thoughts and actions.
  • Players start to think ahead and think “If this, then that”
  • Players are more inclined towards wanting to play soccer rather than being told to play
  • Demonstrate increased self-responsibility
  • Players start to recognize fundamental tactical concepts
  • Begin to become aware of peer pressure.
  • Players affiliate with their team or their coach
  • There is a wide continuum of maturity evident on most teams.
  • U10 is still a crucial age for technical skill development.
