Under 11 to 12

Coaching 10 to 11 year-olds carries a directive to introduce trainees to physical activity, social interaction in the team setting and having fun playing the game of soccer. Trainees in this age group are still undergoing growth spurt and such, they have limited agility and often go very hard, become exhausted and stop, and then quickly recover. Intrinsic motivation is vital and enjoying the game is extremely crucial so as to ensure they do not suffer a burnout.
