Want the best guidance, training plans, and resources for coaching kids soccer for players 3+? It’s all here at Locker Soccer Training.
Who We Are:
Locker Soccer Training was founded by Steve Locker in 2013. He, along with industry-leading childhood development experts from Harvard University and The Ohio State University, developed a series of soccer training materials, workouts, videos and drills that are designed to specifically meet the development needs of children ages 3-13. The training materials intentionally combine science-based childhood development techniques with expert/professional level soccer training activities. We are staffed by active academy coaches, top-level experts in youth soccer and even Steve Locker himself.
The soccer training programs focus on three age categories that are critical to childhood development: U5, U7, and U13. Don’t worry, these just aren’t some training plans developed in a classroom or a lab. They are the exact training strategies and methods that we have been using in our academies and elite programs for the past 14 years. During that time more than 40,000 children have tested these training programs and our graduates have gone on to play top-level soccer at the collegiate and elite levels.
Soccer Training that Empowers Yourself As A Coach And Your Team:
Locker Soccer Training empowers mentors and coaches to adopt a proven sports philosophy that nurtures childhood development. Join our coaching revolution where we emphasize fun and the development of a passion for the game all while practicing soccer techniques that are proven to take your kids to the next level.
Before kids can play like a pro, they must enjoy playing the game like a kid.”
How Our Soccer Training Programs Work:
We offer three different age groups of curriculum to ensure that the practice content is absolutely perfect for the various levels of child development.
Each weekly training plan offers a different theme and covers the five main parts of a practice session:
- Warm-Up activity
- Stretching program
- Soccer Skill activity
- Running activity
- A Final FUN game.
Each activity is presented in the form of a short video, graphics, and easy to understand diagrams. Most importantly, a coach can access a perfect training session in less than two minutes. All of this can be accessed on your computer, tablet, or smartphone, and used right on the training field.
