What do I need to run a practice?

In general, you can manage most of your practices in a 20 x 30 space. If possible, you will need to secure the following to make your training sessions successful.

  • 15 - 20 cones or disks (you can usually secure these pretty cheap at Play It Again Sports)
  • 8 scrimmage vests or bibs (two colors in sets of 4 preferred)
  • A watch so you can keep practices to 45 - 60 minutes. No longer.
  • A parent volunteer to help you keep the kids organized
  • A smile, A smile, and A smile. Have fun and help them learn the game.
