I am coaching a 6/7th grade soccer team at my old school. And I was wondering if anyone knows of some good agility, speed, ya know running drills. I googled it and found a few, but I trust your guys words better than other sites. Thanks!

Once you are done with the cones for that drill set them up like 25 feet apart, set it up like rectangle, and make them run from one side to the other like 12 times in under 1 minute, we do that, except its 16, and it's more like 30 feet. Oh yeah, they're called Lakers. They are a lot like Line-grabbers, but these will make you quicker. There's a difference between fast and quick.

I've done a bit of soccer in my day, so I can help out if you need any soccer-y advice. There was this awesome drill that my team used to do, but it's ridiculously complicated and I really don't think that I could effectively communicate it over the internet.
Other than that, try Indian runs for conditioning (they line up single-file and jog on a course, and when you blow your whistle the guy at the back of the line sprints to the front.)
I'll try and think of more.
Make them run from store to store at the mall and make them run their errands. Then tie all the merchandise to their foot and have them run a mile. It works like a charm!! Or put a picture of a hot girl on the back of your car and drive away, having them chase it.
go to goggle and type in youth football. lots of good stuff. I coach flag football. Saved links for that but there is a crapload of stuff for tackle. also go to ezboard( use search engine) there are several boards there that you can talk to other youth coaches to get advice and help.
You could think of government workers like teenagers. You pay them an allowance, but do you get any work out them? They eat the food, put their feet on the furniture and complain loudly whenever they are unhappy.
