Recommended Training Session to Match Ratio

April 30, 2004 10:00 PM
¥ Frequency

¥ Training Sessions-to-Match Ratio
U6:   1 day per week
        45 minutes

Or 0:1 – the idea here is for the U6 players to show up on Saturday or Sunday for their hour, which includes 20- to 30-minutes of appropriate activities and then a 3v3 match.  This is the academy approach in which the players are not assigned to teams, but all children in the age group meet at the same time and place to be trained and have a game.
U8:  1 day per week
       45 to 60 minutes
U10:  2 days per week
         60 to 75 minutes
U12:  2 to 3 days per week
         60 to 75 minutes
         2 or 3:1
U14:  3 days per week
         75 to 90 minutes
U16:  3 days per week
         90 minutes
         3 or 4:1
U19:  4 to 5 days per week
         90 minutes
         4 or 5:1
