Key Coaching Points for 13 to 16 Year Olds

We’ve polled coaches and here are the key coaching points they recommend when it comes to passing:

  • select proper weight and timing of pass
  • look at target before making the pass (communication)
  • eyes on the ball at the moment of contact
  • good first touch to control and prepare ball
  • keep your toes up and the ankle locked of your kicking foot
  • use the proper surface of the foot to strike the ball
    follow through toward target
  • accuracy over power
  • body position and balance (slightly bent knee and body over the ball for low passes and lean back for aerial passes)
  • always practice with both feet
