welcome to this National Soccer Coaches

Association of America program this

program is designed for coaches of five

to seven year old players whether you're

an experienced coach or this is your

first time coaching we hope to share

with you activities that encourage

multiple touches on the ball creative

individual play and most importantly fun

for the players ending in a four against

four game

this DVD focuses on coaching players in

the five to seven year old age group

coaches of very young children must have

skills and use methods which challenge

the children and help them fall in love

with the game of soccer

the NSCAA believes that coaches of

players in this age group are very

important and must have the knowledge

and a personality which is appropriate

for players who are just beginning their

soccer journey due to the fact that many

of them are being introduced to soccer

for the very first time we call this

stage of the players development the

discovery period we believe that coaches

of this age group must have patience be

well organized and have a multitude of

soccer like activities which are fun to

play but also teach the players ball

lists of soccer movement and multiple

touches on the ball
