For Kids U10 and Above
If you need more than just soccer drills, such as entire soccer practice plans, you should go to the Soccer Practice Page.
Also, if you are just starting out as a “volunteer” youth soccer coach I highly recommend you go to the NEW Soccer Coach Page before you look at the drills.
Here are my personal favorite soccer drill resources incorporated into 8 weeks of soccer practice plans:
- Coaching Manual for U-8 and U-10 - Gavin J. Spooner (MS Word format)
- Coaching Manual for U-12 and U-14 - Gavin J. Spooner (MS Word format)
Another one high on my list is Practice Plans from Soccer-Coach-L.

I have gone through many soccer drill pages to find ones that are specifically suited for youth soccer in the U-10 and above range. Enjoy. (If you don’t have it, you can download a free copy of Adobe Acrobat Reader HERE.)

By far the best soccer drill book I have seen for youth soccer is Organizing Your Youth Soccer Team.

Even better, you can be learning new drills to use in minutes because the book is available as a download!
