It remains important at this stage, to give athletes the opportunity to do contested activities as they develop their skills but to return to non-contested (but still fun!) activities. However, specialist roles must not be established, gestures and movements must not be extremely technical yet, the game must be in a free form, the playing ideas (in offence and defence) presented by the coach should be simple at the beginning. The final aim should be that of bringing children to play 5 on 5 in a slightly more organised way, however the next chapter sets out a range of rule variations that can be utilized to maximize the involvement and enjoyment of the players. Often “small sided” games such as 3 on 3 and 4 on 4 are better for children at this age as it gives players more opportunity to be involved in the play and more space to play in.
