If you’re coaching youth soccer and want to be a better soccer coach, then you’ve come to the right place. If you need some support with your soccer practice design, join now and explore our library of session plans for soccer coaches.
PDP Editor, Dave Wright has 15 years experience coaching soccer, holds a UEFA A license and has worked at clubs such as Fulham FC & Brentford FC in London. Dave guides you through a range of soccer practice designs that you can use at your next session. Each practice is a webinar-style video where Dave walks you through the fundamentals of the session from set-up and preparation, to variations and progressions.
With a focus on practices that are representative of the game, opposed and often game-based, each session will allow your players to focus on a specific area of the game or respond to a unique constraint. All of our session plans are tagged with topics so you can easily search for plans that suit your teams needs.
As Dave explains, soccer practice design is a crucial part of your role as a coach. He says, “All soccer coaches are different. We all plan and deliver in our own way and have our own individual philosophy. I have designed these practices so that they can be adapted for your environment and the age and level of your players. By providing a frame work which you can adjust accordingly, these soccer sessions will allow your players to explore creativity, solve problems and develop their technique through repetition in a realistic environment, supported by representative information sources which help your players become better decision-makers.”
Each video has a theme and outside of the practical components, Dave will take you through the organisation, outcomes, adaptations and progressions. Finally, Dave will share how each practice will cater for individuals and which elements of the ‘four corner’ model are achieved.
