Why Small Sided Games for U8 to U12 teams?

Small sided games accelerate player development.  The benefits of small sided games for players include more touches on the ball and an increase in tactical decisions. This style of play allows players to learn different positions and learn tactics quicker.  

From US Soccer:  "What we’re trying to do is to help players develop by putting them in an environment where they are constantly involved in the play.  That could be with the ball and that could be without the ball, but when you make things small-sided, everyone is somehow involved in the play, whether that’s in defending, in cutting angles, in cutting the ball back, you’re always in the play."
