205 Sports has been publishing session plans for UC Premier U9-U12 coaches since June 2019. As part of the United Soccer Coaches Master Coach program, we’ve also been working on an athletic development periodization program for a local high school.
Both club and high school programs require tracking session plan activities in order to achieve development objectives. In the past, we’ve used notebooks to track practice plans.
However, it’s desirable to view an entire cycle of programming – as a review and to be able to develop new session plans. At 205, we typically plan 1-2 weeks ahead rather than pre-programming an entire cycle. This choice reflects a desire to respond to the training state and responses of the teams and players that we work with.
205 has produced spreadsheets for coaches to support training periodization and athletic development periodization (click the images to download the spreadsheets).
