You are probably reading this because you are interested in coaching private lessons!
Below I have listed some things to think about when considering teaching a soccer private lesson or individual skill session.
The session should be in a concentrated format. Soccer players between the ages of 8-14 will benefit more if they are taught technical ball skills in a nurturing 1 on 1 environment.
The session’s attention should be dedicated to your student for approximately 1 hour.
The session should have a specific lesson, tailor-made for the individual. In the beginning, focus on the following skill sets: Ball control, passing and receiving, dribbling, shooting, defending, balance and coordination. Once the player has developed a strong grasp of these skill sets (after a few sessions), continue to the more advanced focus such as: Juggling, dribbling moves, finishing, plyometric strength training, and heading.
The coach should complete a written player evaluation that can be mailed or e-mailed to the student.
The coach should give the student a "take-home" skill assignment designed with the player's improvement in mind.

Soccer skills are an important part of being successful in soccer. Soccer skills are simply the touch one has when passing, trapping, receiving, or shooting. These soccer skills can be improved though repetition and multiple touches on the ball.
In order to keep possession in soccer it is critical that players master the art of maintaining possession. Since the chest is the largest surface of the body, it can easily be used to cushion the ball down to the players’ feet.
The effectiveness of a soccer training session is greatly hinged on the coaches intensity, execution, explanation, expectations, communication with the players, and time spend on an activity. However, the most important piece of making an effective soccer training session is to make it competitive and game like by paying attention to the details.
