by Anthony Latronica, former US U-17 Men’s National Team Assistant Coach
Working with the last three US U-17 Men’s National Team World Cup cycles and earning over 100 international coaching caps at the youth international level has given me an inside look at youth development across the world. It has never been more clear to me what is needed at the youngest age groups. I have spent countless hours on the training pitch sculpting a blueprint for player development and a training curriculum that is simple and modern. This 12-week curriculum, specifically designed for Zone 1, ages 9-12, is cognitively based and has a great balance of rondos, position play, and game-related activities! Whether you are training 2 or 3 days a week, playing 7V7 or 9V9, these 42 activities will help your players thrive. This curriculum will give your girls and boys the necessary foundation to succeed at the 11V11 level. Downloading it directly into your own library allows you to follow the blueprint as is or make desired edits based on your own environment.
Let’s continue to do our part in player development and take our coaching to the next level!
