The main questions we get here at eteamz tend to be from new coaches looking for suggestions. Seeing the demand for such information,we created this section specifically for new coaches needing a few pointers. For all of you new coaches, we hope these pointers from us and many others experienced in youth soccer will be of some help.

Tips for New Coaches
  • Try to reduce the player to coach ratio.
  • Make having fun the #1 priority.
  • DON'T focus on having star players, but work on teamwork instead.
  • Stress to your players that they stay away from each other.
  • Rotate your players through all positions.
  • Praise your players when they do the things you want to see and have the players praise themselves.
  • Don't be too hard on your players and remember that mistakes are not bad things.
  • Before the season starts set some ground rules with the parents and players on your team.
  • Try using small-sided games with younger children.
  • Seek some level of coaching education.
