Hi all, im a new coach who has just begun his coaching journey and have an under 7's team with varying football ages. We have some players who have been playing for 3 yrs, some boys who have played for 2 months. Most of the players have good confidence on the ball to dribble and shoot (in varying capabilities)
Im really conscious that the team seem to chase the ball (which im well aware is normal for this age group) but I would really like to know from any of you what sessions you have found beneficial to help your teams not all chase the ball.
Some sessions we have already done include playing basketball and netball, helping the players utilise space and scanning. I do wonder if our coaching sessions have not included enough game scenarios and I think in review, were focussing a lot on basics (like passing and receiving, setting and shooting)
Would really appreciate any help anyone can offer.
