SFYS @ Home
– We have created a home training program to help your players learn the ‘how’ so you can focus on the ‘why’ at practice. We want you to use it, as much as you want to. You might also create your home training program, and if you do, please share it with us if you would like – more soccer, please!

Visit the 7v7 Forum and you will find session plans and videos for each week of a typical 10 week season. The practices focus on covering as much of the nuances and the expectations as possible. They are also mostly small-sided games because the players are challenged to work on technique at home with SFYS @ Home.

Start here with the ‘model’
Then explore formations.
And explore the small-sided games
