SIMPLE WARM-UP ROUTINE FOR PLAYERS AGES 9 THROUGH HIGH SCHOOL

Players can juggle, do some short passing, play keep-away, and get a few shots on goal prior to the game. Warm up the goalkeepers with help from the parents. Pass goalkeepers a variety of balls, progressing from easy passes to shots. Once the keepers are warmed up, they can go in goal and the team can take full-force shots.
