Yeah echo what people have said, at their age forget tactics just make it fun. Involve all the kids, even the ones who aren't as good and rotate them into different positions.

Also encourage them when they lose.

First game went really well! Our team did great comparatively: really understood no hands, out of bounds, which direction to go, and seemed very engaged the entire game.

One of the kids got so mad when the other team scored that he walked off of the field Laughing

It was fun, but challenging to watch semi-organized chaos and provide a lot of positive feedback an constructive criticism.

Thanks for all of the advice, gents!

Thank you!

I have done a lot of work to make sure that they always have a ball. One tip I got that actually works really well is to have them practice with a tennis ball for the first 5 minutes or so while kids are still showing up. They can't just boot the ball and go chase it, and it keeps them very focused.

A couple of the kids have trouble using the inside of the foot and frequently turn to use the outside of the foot instead because of their lack of coordination at this stage. Any tips there?


At this age, you do not want them nor should you teach them to use the inside of their foot.
Their knees and legs are not anywhere near developed yet. Some medical reports I read said it can hurt the development of knees.
At 4 years old, you only need to be concerned with the kids having fun and loving the game.

They're young so deal with that. Learn to respect them and show them everyone has a role, work to their advantages and what they're good at. I'd say that to any coach at level. Most of all good luck to you in this.
