Northeast Louisiana Soccer Association

4 Year Olds

Purpose
NELSA four year old program is designed on movement education with and without the ball, with a focus on game introduction.
The program will spend the majority of the time with one player and the ball. The focus is on individual attention and age appropriate games and activities.

Overview
Coaching children under six years of age presents some additional challenges due to their immaturity, short attention span, and less developed muscles. The objective should be for all of the kids to have fun, make friends, and learn some soccer skills that will help them should they decide to continue to the next level. The goal is to introduce them to basic concepts like dribbling and kicking and make it enough fun that they want to keep playing as their bodies and minds mature. 

Practices

Practices will always be fun. Players will play "games" that introduce skills not "drills". 
Coaches will maximize touches on the ball per player in practice and avoid lines so the players won't have to wait for their turn to play.
Their will be minimal lecture to allow for development and more soccer.
The main focus will be on improving individuals skills and having fun. Skills such as dribbling, trapping the ball, shielding the ball, shooting, and getting around an opponent.
