To help coaches within the season, Stafford Soccer has produced lesson plans to assist coaches throughout the season. The sessions are designed by our technical staff and work off the US Soccer guidelines on simple to complex. Below are session plans for a 10 week schedule. Coaches do not need to stick to the lessons if they feel their team needs to focus on a different topic that week. All sessions are ideas that we hope coaches will find helpful. Sessions will consist of an activity/game, diagram of activity and explanation of activity
