How can I encourage my U13s to keep possession?


The question this week comes from Gary:

I started coaching my U13 team this year and the main issue I have is getting the team to keep possession and getting the players to be comfortable on the ball. I have tried a few sessions but want to get the lads to understand they can play the way they are facing.”
