In order to make practices run smoothly and be fun, it is important for us 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 12 player:

  • All children are maturing at different rates and are sensitive to that fact.
  • Need to warm-up and stretch as muscle pulls and other nagging injuries tend to become more common.
  • Typically understand elemental abstract concepts and hypothetical situations.
  • They like to solve problems.
  • Peer evaluation is a constant.
  • Egos are sensitive.
  • Coordination may depend on whether or not they are in a growth spurt.
  • Technique still needs to be reinforced constantly.
  • Playing too much can lead to overuse injuries.
  • Playing too much and not feeling like they have a choice in the matter can lead to burnout and drop-out.
  • This is the dawn of tactics!
  • Keep asking the players to be creative and to take risks. 
  • Ask for feedback from them. They will tell you how things are going.
  • Try to hand over leadership and ownership of the team to them. They will enjoy leading and it will add to the learning environment.
