Mavericks U9 Training Curriculum

Mavericks Soccer Club U9 Training Curriculum 


Mavericks Soccer Club training sessions for all age groups cover tactical, technical, physical and psychological elements. Each training session is organized into three blocks 1, Warm-up,  2, main part (which includes technical, physical and tactical exercises) and 3, scrimmages. The season plan relates to age-specific requirements for each player within the team environment. These change as players grow and develop, the higher the number within the practice content the higher the importance at the specific age (#5 are essential for the development of players at this age group, #0 is not required at this age group)
