Haverhill Youth Soccer asks that all coaches use session plans provided by Mass Youth Soccer. These session plans are specifically designed to be age appropriate and utilize US Soccer's Grassroots methodology. Development coaches are asked to review the session plan for each particular week prior to attending their Coaches Clinic. In-Town and Travel coaches should select a session plan based on their analysis of each week's game. If you believe that your players need more or less of a challenge, feel free to try session plans in an older or younger grade group.
The following is a list of resources to help gain a better understanding of the Play, Practice, Play format.
