This is an alternative curriculum which we encourage coaches to use in their training sessions. Session Plans are organized by Player Age Groups and by Training Themes. Each Practice Plan is designed specifically to be age appropriate. Age groups are designated in even years (i.e. U6, U8, U10, etc.) but the sessions are also appropriate for the odd year preceding the age group listed (e.g. U6 practice plans are appropriate for U5 players). If you believe that your players need more or less challenge, feel free to try Practice Plans in an older or younger age group.
