While coaching grassroots soccer, you will get the most from your players and team when you choose the drill, practice session, or training plan matches the age and skill set of your players. When coaching Under 4, Under 5, Under 6, Under 7, and Under 8 soccer, often referred to as grasshopper soccer, you are dealing with young undeveloped brains with different learning capacities, kids with varying issues of maturity, short attention spans, and lack of muscle development.
When coaching this level, the coach's number one objective is to have fun. Learning the game will be much easier for kids if you make the game fun and they will love practicing.
