Hi everyone. I was wondering if I could get some help. Im coaching soccer for the first time this fall. Innever played soccer much, but i coached lacrosse this year. I imow the sports have a lot of similarities.

Can someone tell me:

1) when does an indirect kick occur?
2) How about a direct kick?
3) do they use actual "plays" in soccer?
4) Do you have any other suggestions?

Thanks guys!

I advise you to play video games like Fifa 13 or Pro Evolution Soccer. Fifa manager is also a must have. It can teach a lot of tactics and plays
1) from Wikipedia Indirect free kick - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
2) from Wikipedia Direct free kick - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
3) If you mean a tactic and a strategy then yes, there are offensive and defensive strategies you should arrange 10 players on the field between offense, midfield and defense. Every tactic or a strategy require a different formation and this will be determined by the abilities of your players and the oppositions strategy.
4) you should have an assistant coach and when you train the players add a lot of fitness training
Watch videos on youtube and soccer highlights
* Just remember there are successful professional soccer coaches and managers who have never played the game or played professionally
I don't know much about Lacrosse

Read read read.

Don't over -coach and have your practices too structured.

The objective is for the KIDS TO HAVE FUN and hopefully improve their skills.

If most parents see winning as the only objective for little Johnny/Susie tell them to find another team.

An indirect kick will usually occur when the play is stopped due to a handball or if something flew onto the field or something like that... Direct kicks usually come from fouls. LOL I like soccer and I forgot...

I have to say, playing FIFA and Pro Evo has to be the most bizzare advice I have ever seen given to somebody wanting advice on coaching!

Coaching is easy if you have knowledge of the game. You should ask someone who knows about soccer. I'm here to help if you need anything.

Thanks!!

1)does the defensemen have to stay in their half of the field at all times like in Lacrosse?
2) Does the forwards have to stay in their half of the field at all times like Lacrosse?
3) what formation do you like better? 3 defense, 4 midfielders, and 3 forwards OR 4 defense, 3 midfielders, and 3 forwards?

Thanks again!!
