The objective is to have the kids play in a smaller space to maximize development. There are countless reasons why this is the best opportunity for your child to grow in soccer. In small-sided games, players have more touches on the ball. They will develop quick decision making skills easier with less players on the field, which also increases their tactical understanding of the game. Children will have more opportunities to solve problems that only the game presents with regards to both attacking and defending. More space with less players enhances creativity and fun!
