FFC Coaches Manual



U9 - U12 Travel Curriculum
Basic Stage

9 - 12 Years Old

At this stage, the structure (but not the content) of the training sessions will be similar to that of older players. The main component of the training session will be technical. It is sensible at this age to develop technique and basic tactical understanding. Children’s capacity to solve problems increases significantly. Therefore players will begin working on basic and dynamic tactical scenarios. At this stage, players are pre-pubescent and have important physical limitations in terms of strength and endurance.

U13 - U14 Travel Curriculum
Intermediate Stage


13 - 14 Years Old

Players at this age develop a good understanding of the game. However, these players are limited

by their physical size and the significant changes, which arise with puberty. Safety should be the number one priority for the coach. The coach must be cautious to avoid overtraining should focus more on tactical and technical elements of the game and less on the physical aspects. Tactical training plays an important role at this age.

U15, U16 - U18 Travel Curriculum
Advanced Stage 

15 - 18 Years Old

Players at this age have completed most of their physical and mental development. All components of training can be combined and organized with the purpose of developing the highest potential of the player. The strength of the muscles helps to develop technique at high speed and this speed helps the player to react faster to tactical situations. This stage is crucial for combining all the components of soccer in order to increase the players’ soccer knowledge.

U15 High School Transitional Age Group 
Year Round Program (24 Week + 8 Week Optional Winter Season)

This age group is defined as a "Trap Year" where 8th & 9th Graders are mixed, creating an shift in demands between players who are competing in High School and those who are still in Middle School.  Depending on the amount of players competing in High School Soccer per team, Training schedules may vary during the High School, March, April and May.  Weekly training may be reduced in an effort to minimize fatigue and overuse.  8th Graders during this time will be allowed to train with the U14 Age Group to ensure they are provided a minimum of 3 Training Sessions per week.  Girls may also be allowed during this time to train with boys teams.  All decisions will be based off what is developmentally appropriate for each player.
