Who Wins The 50-50 Ball ?















GREAT JOB U9G!!


MOVEMENT WITH AND WITHOUT THE BALL



Field awareness in passing and receiving are important -

Facts - in an adult game, the player is off the ball about 98% of the time, and only has the ball for only about 2% of the time during the game. Therefore when they have the ball (as kids) they must learn to be skillful, think quickly and be efficient and productive when on the ball in order to learn to MAKE  GOOD SOCCER DECISIONS !!
