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 6 player.

  • Focused on themselves – reality to them is based on what they see and feel
  • Unable to see the world from another’s perspective 
  • Everything is in the here and now
  • Cooling systems are less efficient - need frequent water breaks 
  • Enjoy playing, not watching. Every player should have a ball in practice
  • Limited attention span - keep directions concise and to the point
  • Effort is performance – if they try hard, they are doing well
  • Active imaginations – utilize their imagination in activities, and they will love practice!
  • Look for adult approval – be encouraging when they say “Coach, look what I can do!”
  • Unable to think abstractly – spatial relationships are a mystery 
  • Typically have 2 speeds -- extremely fast and stopped
  • Usually unaware of game scores – keep it that way
