I used this video:
To plan my practices around. It keeps the kids learning, busy, miniszes downtime, and preps them to play the game. I had a very successful run as a coach and owe most of it to the practice techniques I learned from this video.
The video in the link will show you how to properly organise and run a practice. The method keeps the kids busy the whole practice and focuses on fundamental skills. I'd of loved to have had that kind of coaching when I was a kid.
I coached the 9-12 age brackett for 6 years. My first 4 years, not using the practice methods in the video, I was a .500 coach in regular season (100 games 50W - 50L). After adopting the method of coaching in the video, my team over the next 2 seasons was 47-3, including a 25-0 season. The method made a huge difference, but I had a lot of good talent those last 2 seasons as well.
