I'm in need of some soccer help/advice. I'm helping coach a girls' team filled with 1st and 2nd graders and we have about three weeks worth of practice to go before we start our games. I've never played the game nor have I paid much attention to it over the years. Thus, I'm not very well schooled in the sport and am not sure how to go about teaching it to youngsters.
Does anyone out there with experience know of some really good drills for the girls? Most have played the game before and know a few of the fundamentals. Our problem is coming up with useful things to do during practice that are fun for them and hold their attention for more than a few minutes at a time. "Sharks and Minnows" is only fun for so long, then they start to wander. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
