Soccer Warm Up
Here is a simple format for
pre-game conditioning.
Soccer conditioning is important, but should not require the same drills
for the entire team.  For example, an outside midfielder needs to have
the greatest endurance to be able to run the entire length of the soccer
field, and speed is also important for this position.  Defensive players will
of course need to be conditioning for the big field, but do not have to be
able to run the entire length, even though endurance and speed are
important at every position.  Forwards need to have the best speed
possible with the best foot skills.  Different soccer players will be at
different levels of fitness and have different requirements for their
conditioning and position.

There probably is no perfect routine that every soccer player should do.
Soccer conditioning can serve a different purpose for each individual
and best helps each one's personal goal.

These soccer conditioning drills are simply guidelines and should be
used to help coaches and soccer players to develop proper technique
first.  Then they should increase in speed, strength and intensity to
develop the best soccer conditioning possible.  Most soccer players
work on speed, agility, endurance, flexibility, and muscle strength.  
One's personal conditioning program should also include a good,
healthy diet.
Soccer
conditioning for
endurance is
extremely
important, so the
best thing a soccer
coach can do for
the entire team is
to have them run,
run, and run some
more.  Some teams
run 5-8 miles per
practice when
conditioning for the
season.  It is easily
conceivable that a soccer player could easily run 5 miles or more per
soccer game, especially if substitutions are limited!  No wonder in high
school why some soccer players may also run cross country or track.
