Dear Fellow Coach,
Your players need to be technically good before they can progress to tactical practices.
All players need to work on technical aspects especially youth players with the most important attributes being ball control (dribbling, turning etc..), passing and receiving which also develops player awareness when the technical coaching points are coached correctly.
However, just working on technical aspects is not enough, why? They need to perform them technically correct.. so the coaching points you give them is what makes the real difference!
