U6 soccer fitness and nutrition is important for a coach to understand. Players are not physically developed enough to make fitness a priority. There is no sense of pace, which means these players rocket around the field as hard as they can for as long as they can and then must stop. The implication is that players need to be substituted frequently and provided with ample water breaks during practice and matches. A ritual at this age is “End of Game Snacks” for the team. We think this is a great team bonding experience and should be encouraged.
