Touchtight Coaching Tips:

We can develop this practice in many ways, yet for this age group we must focus on technique and the introduction of various targets will probably be enough to test younger players. Observe their approach, contact with the ball and body position on contact to make necessary adjustments with both feet.
S - Alter distance depending on age and ability of players, this can include taking an extra touch to shoot closer to goal if necessary
T - Add competition between players, e.g. time taken to finish 8 balls and measure how many on target.. be creative in totalling scores
E - For each goal, position small markers a yard inside each post for players to finish into gaps, extra points for achieving this target
P - Individual player focus
