    Have an u13 girls soccer team. about 20 girls. From next week pitches mostly closed for winter. So we have 3-4 months where no games.

    Have access to a running track that we can get on to twice a week for an hour a time. So what to do when we get there.

    Of the 20 girls there is vastly different athletic standards.

    What to do for an hour on a track twice a week. Is there a way to get a program we can follow I can do out so we know what we'll be doing for x amount of weeks in a row?

  • Sounds a great idea, you should try talk to a coach in the local running club, maybe ask if you can attend one of their juvenile sessions to pick up ideas for your own group.

    A session might look like:
    Warm up lap
    Introduction to drills
    Strides, flying 30s/changing gears
    Cool down

    YouTube link of a few drills, followed by a session and games at the end.

    Games sprinkled throughout, snatch the bacon, flinch, relays, chasing, sticks

    Nice Wottle thanks a mill for that, even thats a help...




  • I'd use ladder drills and 6inch hurdles, great for agility, like previous post, ask an athletic coach, best of luck
