      Article Description:
      It's like clockwork when you have a soccer field diagram before you
      and you are planning to teach the kids soccer formations and
      positions. When the kids are younger, say between 4 to 6 years in
      age, it is better to make them play in small sided soccer, like a 3 v

      Soccer Field Diagram : Who Else Want To Learn Soccer Formations
      � Copyright 2009 Expert Secret, Lda (SoccerDrillsTips.com)

      When a soccer field diagram is used to teach the kids soccer
      formations and various positions, the job of planning and
      execution becomes very simple. When your kids are young,
      somewhere between 4 to 6 years of age, what works best is to
      have them play in small sided soccer like a 3 v 3 or a 4 v 4 not
      including the goalies.

      As the kids grow, you can make them play a 5 v 5 with a goalie.
      There are countless benefits. As a result, kids have a lot of fun,
      make maximum contacts with the ball, and learn the ideas better.

      At this tender age, the kids are just about learning to control and
      pass the ball. You can start training them on positions and
      formations also. It is a good time to designate players as forwards
      and defenders. You should also ensure that they get to their
      positions as much as possible.

      At some point in time, the number of players will increase along
      with the size of the field. Then it becomes a little tricky to create
      formations. However, you must still allot the players different
      positions and make sure that they are honestly working on playing
      from those positions.

      When you�ve chosen the formations, you must chat about it with
      the players. They must be made to understand the idea behind it
      and the reason that makes one particular player suitable for a
      particular position that any other player. For this reason, a soccer
      field diagram is very handy. Kids learn better by looking at visual
      representations. Also, there are players who learn better on field
      by way of observing to while performing drills or by going through
      the written text.

      There are some general policies and soccer tactics that should be
      adhered to for every soccer position such as defenders,
      midfielders, and forwards. These guidelines form the basis of a 2-
      2-2 formation in a 7 v 7 game. These directives are broad but you
      can modify them to suit your plans for the team.

      As an example, you may decide on 3 midfielders instead of 2. You
      may use your center midfielder to attack furiously on offence or
      require that he marks the opponent midfielders on defense. You
      may wish your wing defenders to take all throw-ins. There can be
      a lot of differences.

      In addition to the field diagram, it always pays to pen down your
      thoughts on paper. This gives the kids an opportunity to go
      through the instructions at their own pace which improves their
      understanding a great deal. The parents can also glance through it
      and get to know your views and goals for the team and individual
      players.

      Teach soccer positions with the help of field diagrams doesn't
      matter what else you choose to do. This can help you save on a lot
      of time and energy required to explain formations and is therefore
      a great mechanism.

      What are you waiting for? Move ahead and make the most of a
      soccer field diagram to teach your kids several formations and
      positions on field. You�ll find a wealth of information on our youth
