Agility Drills For Kids

As a youth soccer coach, you will soon see you have a wide variety of skill sets with your youth soccer players. Some have been playing a few years already and are very athletic, while others can barely put one foot in front of the other! Your job as a youth soccer coach will be first to teach them to achieve a level of agility and balance, that is consistent throughout your soccer team.

Another question I get is what exactly the boxing workout consists of for kids. Well, we jump rope, perform footwork drills, shadow box, work the heavy bags, double end bags, the punch mitts, speed bags, perform defensive drills, conditioning work, perform abdominal core exercises, and body weight exercises such as push ups and squats.

For this drill you will only need a ribbon about 3-4 feet long. Pair off your students. One will be the head and one will be the tail. Tie the ribbon to the back of the belt of the “head” student while giving the “tail” to the second student. The goal is for the head to catch the tail. This encourages students to think creatively, use agility and promotes fun!

When considering fitness drills for your kids, your first realisation should be that kids are not just small adults. Adult fitness drills are generally inappropriate for kids. For the kids that I coach I tend not worry about any kind of fitness drills at training up until about the age of eleven.

Activities need to be stimulating and enjoyable, well balanced, safe and specific to the sport. Kids like variety, they like being challenged but more importantly they love experiencing success. Having user friendly activities that allow for kids to develop self confidence, self awareness and improve their self esteem leads to a cohesive, team oriented, structured and successful season of sport.

The speed ladder will not change, only the drills. The drills that can be performed will help younger kids develop not only speed and agility but also coordination and muscle strength. These drills will be performed on a 3 day a week basis not to over work the muscles. They drills are quick and fast and require coordination to complete correctly.

Don’t allow your players to run drills without supervision. Walking away, even if it’s to prepare for the next drill, allows players to develop bad habits and bad form.
