What to practice at Under 16

This is the hardest age for football development and the age that most girls drop out of football. Outside pressure of school, GCSEs, can really make football difficult. However, this should also be the most exciting time for a footballer.

Your talent and ability should really have accelerated over the last few years. Your understanding of the game, how you can influence a game and the friendships you will have built in your team will be at an all-time high.

The speed at which you can apply your technical ability will be amazing. Keep working on technical skills. Really hone in on position specific drills but don’t stop working on physical development as after under 16’s generally comes open age football (although that may change as the game grows) and you will be up against women!
