Create a safe and challenging environment.
Be organized and prepared every time you step on the field. Don't let a moment be wasted, have drills set-up and ready to go in order to keep the practice session at a fast pace. Don't allow a child's mind to wonder, keep it moving through organization.
Instruct clearly using simple language. Focus on the task or end result desired. Relate it if possible to something they already know how to do.
Demonstrate each drill as much as possible, limit verbal instruction.
Let the kids have lots of repetitions. Give them an opportunity to learn from their own mistakes and fromother kids who are doing the drill correctly.
Keep things moving. This keeps the energy at a high level. Don't slow down the whole group to teach oneor two players. However, start over if necessary if a number of the kids aren't doing the drill correctly.
Praise kids often. Be specific, it's more effective.
When a teaching moment presents itself after a drill is completed, ask questions to find out what the child's experience and understanding is.
