I have the distinct pleasure of having a great group of 12 and 13 year olds to coach. In six games we are undefeated (5 wins and one draw) and only 2 goals against over those 6 games.

I'd like to take credit, but it's the 11 on the pitch every week producing those results. They play a very pleasing to the eye game of football. Lots of short passing into space plenty of pace, and a back four that acts like a single brick wall (last weekend's game the keeper touched the ball twice, and once was for a goal kick).

I wonder how long we can keep the clean sheet streak going. They haven't let a goal past the line in three and a half games now.

In almost all cases training involves small-sided games to reinforce a skill or technique so no player is standing around bored (or getting cold in our rapidly approaching Austrlia winter). An added benefit is that if I can keep them running for the full 90 minutes of training (excluding drink breaks), a 60 minute game should be a piece of cake.
