U6/U8 Session Plans


Rancho Cordova Soccer Club recommends that all coaches follow the US Soccer provided curriculum (2015) for U6 and U8.

This curriculum was created from current best practices in the field of soccer education. There are other valid sources to help develop a seasons worth of session plans, but we have found the US Soccer recommended sessions to be simple yet effective.
