For an 8 yr old its really about dribbling and spacing. Most kids that age crowd around the ball like its a dead body.
Don't sweat technique right now. 10 and up you can work on more.
I played from 8 to 20 so if you need help let me know.
I prefer coaching baseball but love soccer.
I'm not quite sure what you guys mean by spacing. Are you talking about between the wings and center or are you referring to his position as an individual with the ball versus a defender?
