I came up with the following instruction sheets to instruct the 7v7 age groups in positions, attacking, defending, finishing, walls, goal and corner kicks. I treat it as homework for the kids, so that they understand what you are trying to teach. It is not to replace the need to play small sided games (as much as time allows). For working in small groups is much more important at U8, U9, and probably U10.
Stressing the small side game (4v4, 4v3, 2v1) is a priority and should be included into every practice.
I pass these sheets out to the parents via email prior to every season, and ask them to review it on a weekly basis. It provides the parents and the kids a learning opportunity. And it provides the team a shared starting point and understanding at this age.
