Players have different needs at varying stages of their development and it is essential that a coach caters to them. It is no use working on wing play if the players have not already worked on the fundamentals of striking the ball.
We also know that a coach that has a plan has direction and we just hope that they are heading in the right direction. US Soccer produced a document that breaks down the needs of the players at different age groups and provides area for the coaches to cover. You can view the document by clicking on the image above or by clicking here.
Please feel free to share your thoughts on the document and how you approach your season planning.
