This will also help the kids perform better tactically at the older age groups. This is often overlooked when the coach dealing with youth players.

Soccer tactics

The MSA coach continues to build upon individual and small group understanding…

Teaching the players positional responsibility – this means giving the players an idea of how positions or shape works in the framework of the team, also allowing players the freedom to play. Example, if a player dribbles the soccer ball from out of defense into the attack, leaving his or her position, but creating a chance to score. This would be considered letting the player play and rewarding the effort.

When a player is playing defender it does not mean they cannot move forward and attack when their team wins the soccer ball.
