Here is a fun soccer coaching game I’ve used for U6 teams and even U8’s. I use it a lot at the end of practice so that the kids go home with a smile.

We call it “Ouch” All the kids get a ball in a confined space and must dribble it around until they can pass it or shoot it at the Coach who is running around within the space attempting to avoid being hit by a ball. Often times you have to let some hit you.

I make faces etc. to provoke them to try harder.

Every time the coach is struck by the ball he yells “Ouch”, usually louder based on the strength of the hit.

The drill teaches ball control and shooting as well as making them think a little. As a bonus sometimes I fall to the ground at the end if I am struck a couple times well, and then they really tee off!
