Training Exercises for All Ages

Training Library

Welcome to the Lanco Youth Soccer League’s Training Library.  Below, you will find training activities listed below headings indicating the skill sets they are designed to address.  Note, though, that there will be several activities that appear under more than one category.  This is particularly true in the “Passing/Ball Circulation” and “Shooting/Ball Striking” categories as those exercises contain both elements.  When exercises overlap from one category to the other, it’s up to the coach to decide which particular skill to emphasize depending upon the needs of the team and the training plan.

All of these exercises have been used successfully with teams playing in the LANCO League during the last 2 years.

The “Gatekeeper” exercises are designed for younger, beginning players as fun ways to improve their coordination and technical skills, particularly shooting.
