Player skill sets/Game knowledge

 

The following skill sets are guidelines that coaches can use to aid in practice plans at all levels based on age. Although some players will surpass these, the average player should find these challenging at their age group. They are not limiting. A coach may wish to add to these and or teach higher skill sets to players if he/ she is knowledgeable enough to determine that it is safe and appropriate to do so. Heading for instance is not to be taught below U9.
