POSITIONS
Rotate your players through all positions.

Every player should know how hard it is to be a goalie, defender, midfielder, and forward. Besides the fact that the talents seen in young players might not be the ones that are best when that player gets a little older, you never know when you'll need one of your defenders to play up on the front line.

When assigning positions, try to stay away from nailing players to his own goal the goal dribbles up to the mid field line and stops when he could have gone down and shot. When asked why, the kid responds, "Cuz the coach told me not to cross this line."

Next: Praise your players when they do the things you want to see and have the players praise themselves.
