The site navigation utilizes arrow, enter, escape, and space bar key commands. Left and right arrows move across top level links and expand / close menus in sub levels. Up and Down arrows will open main level menus and toggle through sub tier links. Enter and space open menus and escape closes them as well. Tab will move on to the next part of the site rather than go through menu items.

In order to make practices run smoothly and be fun, it is important to have a basic understanding of the intellectual, emotional, and physical developmental stage of the players we are coaching. Here are some typical characteristics of the Under 10 player:

  • Attention span lengthens and they start to show the ability to sequence thoughts and actions.
  • Players start to think ahead and think “If this, then that”
  • Players are more inclined towards wanting to play soccer rather than being told to play
  • Demonstrate increased self-responsibility
  • Players start to recognize fundamental tactical concepts
  • Begin to become aware of peer pressure.
  • Players affiliate with their team or their coach
  • There is a wide continuum of maturity evident on most teams.
  • U10 is still a crucial age for technical skill development.
