What are your best fun practices?

Hi,

I coach an U8 girls team.

Although I feel pressure from parents and other coaches to actively "teach", I much prefer sessions that are just fun.

My question for other coaches is - what drills/games/ssg's do you have in your back pocket that you can pull out and know the players absolutely love?

  • You can teach through games, keep it fun, and develop team and players.. There are 1,000s of game that can be created, depending on what you are trying to develop within a team: confedence on the ball - 1v1, 2v1, 1v2 etc. games. Passing, vision - more inside/outside/through games. Some of my favorites: capture the flag, river run, through the forest, through the zones, Tic-tac-toe.
