Coaching Points:

Remind them to dribble and work on moves

Coaches remember that U6 players don't normally mentally comprehend the aspect of a team. Work to their strengths.

Do your BEST to let them keep playing. If the ball goes out of bounds kick it back in or yell keep playing. 99% of the kids don't even realize it is out of bounds. They are there to play - LET THEM!!
