9v9 Soccer Coaching Curriculum

Welcome to the SFYS resource page for Coaching 9v9 Soccer. This page will be the home for everything you need to enjoy a successful season of coaching your team in the 9v9 game.


We’ll start with the rules for the 9v9 game within the SFYS house leagues.

You can find them here.

Use the tabs at the bottom to cycle from Recreational to Upper House, to Varsity (8v8).


Now, let’s talk about the nuances of the game at 9v9. They come from the rules, and what the overall experience throws your way.

Second level - Formations.


SFYS @ Home
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 own home training program, and if you do, please share it with us if you would like – more soccer, please!


Here you will find session plans for 14 weeks. The practices focus on covering as many of the nuances and the expectations as possible. They are also small-sided games because the players are challenged to work on technique at home with SFYS @ Home, with practice providing game experiences.
