The Pregame Routine for Soccer Coaches

Part of the Coaching Soccer For Dummies Cheat Sheet

Get your day of coaching soccer off to a good start by establishing a pregame routine. Go through the following tips so your players have a safe and fun-filled time on and off the soccer field.

  • Inspect the field for loose rocks, broken glass, raised sprinkler heads, or anything else that could injure a child.

  • Verify that all the kids brought the proper equipment.

  • Have the kids warm up. Keep the drills light, cover all the muscle groups that will be used in the game, and involve a large number of soccer skills to properly prepare kids for the game.

  • Give the kids a water break before the game begins.

  • Provide encouraging words and a pat on the back to boost kids’ confidence and enhance self-esteem.
