HOWARD FIRE FC U6 CURRICULUM
CHARACTERISTICS OF THE 6U AGE GROUP
The fascination for the ball, the desire to master it and the thrill of scoring goals provides the launching pad into a lifetime of soccer participation. The joy and pleasure of the game are best nurtured by encouraging freedom of expression and organizing children’s play in small groups.
Below are a series of lesson plans designed for the 6U age group, as provided from WYSA's Craig Carlson from his Y1 Course.
ROLE OF THE 6U COACH
The role of the coach in the 4U & 6U age group is as facilitator, friendly helper, organizer, and motivator. The coach should be patient, enthusiastic, and imaginative. The coach should experiment with fun activities that include all players, if possible. The environment and the activities are more important than technical coaching is at this level.
