U7 INDOOR SOCCER
Instead, they should be encouraged to dribble and develop the abilities that allow them to be comfortable on the ball because as they get older that need to be comfortable on the ball is something that they will have a harder time to get used to, either because the objective and balance of training sessions switches from a focus on technical development and one-ball-one-player approach, to a more collective, tactical approach.
The emphasis will be on exposing our youngest players to a high number of game realistic scenarios, mainly 1 vs 1 situations. Within those 1 vs 1 situations, the focus will be on developing dribbling and scoring (shooting) skills. This fits with the psychological and mental capability profile of these young children, who let’s face it, are rather egocentric. They aren’t able to deal with complex decision making required to know when to dribble, and when and whom to pass. The point is, before we start developing the notion of soccer as a passing game, we must focus on the development of skills that suit where they are mentally and cognitively, like keeping the ball, running with the ball and scoring.
