Remember: No laps, no lines, no lectures! Let the activities do the teaching!

Each GK session should be 60 minutes of fun!

  1. Arrive early to set up your field for the first activity before the players arrive.

  2. Don't wait for everyone to arrive! As players drift onto the field, engage them with a ball or two right away!

  3. For the first 30 minutes, facilitate one or two activities.

  4. For the second 30 minutes, hold a scrimmage among your own players (two 15-minutes halves with a 5-minute water break)

TIP: Use your phone’s timer. It helps!
