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 characteristerics of the Under 10 player:

• Attention span lengthens and they start to show the ability to sequence thoughts and actions.
 They start to think ahead and think “If this, then that”
 More inclined towards wanting to play soccer rather than being told to play
 Demonstrate increased self-responsibility
 They 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.
 This is still a crucial age for technical skill development.

Mass Youth Soccer uses ASC Session Template
software to develop our coaching curriculums. ASC

it has become an essential resource for players,
coaches, and others who work in soccer education!
