Principles of Coaching

For one reason or another, we got involved in coaching. Be it we played the sport, or by default, we are coaches now. What is important to understand about coaching is that we are facilitators of knowledge. WE are responsible for creating and providing quality environments for learning. Roles of a coach are many. At any one point, the coach can be a travel agent, psychologist, fitness instructor, parent, adviser, and of course many other jobs. The important note for all coaches is to define your goals and objectives in respect to the team. Apply appropriate methods to achieve these goals, and when necessary redefine and adjust.

KSC has developed a list of coaching principles which should help you in your pursuit of creating a proper learning environment.

Respect the sport: Its rules and regulations.

Respect the individuals participating in the sport be they opposition players and coaches, and/ or fellow club players and coaches.

Encourage individual responsibility.

Develop an environment of respect and commitment amongst your team.

Provide constant communication with players, parents, and other supporting agents within the club.

Promote FAIR PLAY.

Respect confidentiality when appropriate.

Establish a code of conduct.

Ensure the safety of every player.

Look to develop as a coach in order to provide more knowledge to your players.

Characteristics of u9-u12 Players


Players are beginning to develop physically. Speed and strength will begin to become factors in development.

This is the awkward stage. Players are continually growing and finding their balance.

Bone structure and muscle definition should begin to define their shape.

Fitness with and without the ball can be introduced on a regular basis.

Nutrition should be introduced.


Players begin to enjoy competition.

Players are more sensitive to peer pressure and continually look for acceptance.

Players begin stages of self-discovery. Where do I belong?

Players are aware of praise and criticism. This becomes an issue of recognition or embarrassment.


Players are beginning to solve problems on their own.

Multi-tasking on the field and in training is developing.

Players begin to read the game as a whole.

Speed of play can be introduced.


Players must continue to improve their comfortableness on the ball.

Crossing and serving balls over distance must be introduced.

Receiving balls with appropriate body parts is introduced.

Heading needs to be introduced.

Principles of Play and Training Sessions

KSC would like to develop an attack-oriented style of play. The style of play is ultimately determined by the players you have available and of course your opposition. However, WE would like to promote within the club a style that promotes going forward with a purpose to score. For development purposes, KSC decided to introduce a system of play that promotes attacking.

Training Methods and Organization

The communication of knowledge is the sole purpose of education. Our method of translating knowledge needs to be effective and attuned to the team. Assess the last game, assess your team, and assess the upcoming opposition. What kind of students are they? Tactile, do they need to play their role to learn? Visual, do they see the game and their role through verbal commands? Understand the objective of the club in relation to the team. Prepare sessions that address the needs of the team. Keep in mind the four (4) pillars of soccer:

Technical: Individual skills, ex passing, dribbling

Tactical: Decisions based upon opponents and teammates

Physical: Fitness

Psychological: Mental skills utilized to process scenarios


Technical Method:

Fundamental, individual or small group, no pressure, look to perfect technique. Multiple repetitions are necessary to perfect!!!

Match related exercise, use small grids-limited opposition

Game-conditioned exercise, use larger grids with goals-equal opposition

Free play

KSC wants to institute a station style of POOL TRAINING. Simply, the training will consist of stations (3-4 stations) that vary in theme, ie dribbling/ passing/ finishing. The groups should be matched up by level(s) in order to keep the training environment challenging.

The programming will be as follows for ages u9, u10:

Day 1: Station Training grouped by level, 3-4 stations per the curriculum.

Day 2: Whole – Part – Whole Training- The Head Coach will demonstrate the exercise and then have the teams break off to complete the exercise, the Head Coach will lead the session

End every session with games.

Regardless of the method, the purpose of training is to educate. You are responsible for creating a proper learning environment.

Using 4 versus 4 at the end of sessions is a perfect way to translate the training topic into a game. 4 versus 4 is a highly recommended at least once a week in an effort to maintain appropriate touches on the ball and to test the level of player development. The game is the ultimate test. 4 versus 4 is a microcosm of the game.

Keep in mind, “words” become important when coaching. As the player progresses, the terminology develops. Some terms to remember and use:

Shape: The positioning of fellow players in relation to each other, the goal, and the ball. Good shape relates to good soccer. Look for angles that involve triangles.

Technical Speed: The speed by which an individual player can perform the technique under pressure.

Speed of execution/ Decisions: The speed and quality of decisions to maintain possession or score.

Speed of Play: The overall speed of the team to perform the technical and tactical requirements necessary to maintain possession or score.

Compress: When defending, make the field smaller by moving players in positions to deny penetration.

When organizing the session, use the following questions to help prepare:

How many players are involved in each exercise?

What do the remaining players do?

What is the player setup?

What are the dimensions of the field?

How many balls, cones, vests, and other equipment are needed?

Where is the best coaching position?

What are the rules of each exercise?

What is the topic of the session?

What are the keys to the topic?

Look to manipulate the session to create the environment most productive in promoting your topic.

Limit touches

Limit field size

Use zones

Use extra goals

Use extra balls

Use time limits

Use number of passes

Field size is always an issue to contend with. Field size depends upon the age and level of players. Also, field size is dependent upon the topic on stage. Some topics require a larger field to properly educate the players.
