Physical literacy is key for these little ones, and there should be no long lines or activities with players standing around.
A maximum of 4v4 on each field - NO goalkeepers. 2v2 and 3v3 games are ideal as it gives the players time and space to dribble and make decisions.
Pass-ins(kick-ins) or dribble-in if the ball leaves the area. NO throw-ins.
- Please RETURN ALL PUG NETS TO THE MIDDLE at the end, and do not take white cones. They belong to the technical staff and are used for programming throughout the club.
