Many of Our Youth Soccer Drills are Original and Copyrighted. Many of our soccer drills are original and exclusive to SoccerHelp. They were developed by us, have been tested by thousands of coaches, and are available only on SoccerHelp and SoccerHelp Premium. Our drills are carefully designed to teach youth how to play soccer and to achieve more at practice.

How Our Youth Soccer Drills are Developed. There are lots of soccer drills on the Internet, but most are line drills, aren't fun, and don't do a good job of teaching skills. Our youth soccer drills are designed to meet the criteria listed below. We start with the idea of NO LINES - we want every player to stay active and a 50% to 100% ball ratio (100% means a ball for every player). We also try to develop drills that are self-teaching so players learn to play soccer by simply playing our drills. We don't use any elimination games that send kids to the sidelines to watch when they need to be practicing. Drills should be fun and teach real soccer skills - we don't use any silly games that have players crawling on the ground. Our youth soccer drills are then tested by coaches and rated for the appropriate ages. You will see many comments from coaches as part of our drills - that is how we continue to improve them.

Why Our Youth Soccer Drills are More Fun and Players Improve MUCH Faster.

  1. Youth Soccer Drills that are games are the most fun, provide the best training and fastest skill development. Players will learn soccer skills faster by playing our drills and have more fun too. The reason is that our drills teach real skills in a very effective way. Most of our drills are original and are copyrighted - you won't see them anywhere else, but if you do, please let us know.
  2. Our drills teach important soccer skills, teamwork and how to play soccer. We don't use silly games that don't teach real soccer skills. Our soccer drills and games are carefully designed and have been tested by thousands of coaches.
  3. Our soccer drills are easy to set up by one coach - assistants are great but aren't required to set up our drills. You will spend less time setting up drills and more time practicing.
  4. Our youth soccer drills are Self Teaching and players learn the most important skills by simply playing them..
  5. Our soccer drills involve competition and pressure and prepare players to play fast, while under pressure, at game speed, and in chaotic game conditions. Your players will learn to play fast and develop confidence and composure, even when under pressure and in traffic.
  6. Our drills will work for almost any number of players and even or odd numbers (example - if only 4, 5, 6 or 7 show up they will still work).
  7. Our soccer drills don't require large fields or goals..
  8. No lines - In our drills the kids practice soccer instead of standing in line. Standing in line is a waste of time and boring. Your players improve twice as fast because they are practicing instead of standing in line.
  9. Our youth soccer drills are designed so they can be used successfully by coaches with any amount of coaching experience, and even new coaches who have never played soccer. Logo
