Anything where all the players are basically moving AND combining soccer related activities is a good sign of an effective warm up for this age group.
Things like ALL in an area the size of the P.A. All jogging in different directions listening for a call. "MOVE" = all dash in and out of each other for 5 seconds like Dodgem Cars at fairgrounds and then back to jog "DOWN UP" = sit on floor, back up without using hands then instant jump in the air back to jog "TURN" = instant turn and sprint in reverse direction back to jog "BACK" = Walk rapidly backwards for 5 seconds, barging any other player they bump into ( supervise incase of accidents) Then repeat all with each using a ball i.e. Move = dribble in and out Down = sit on ball pick ball up throw in air head and control to ground Turn = Any turn and sprint dribble for 3 seconds Back = drag ball backwards using arms to shield others from moving you off the ball.

Soccer Drills and Warmups I found a number of free soccer drills and in partcular soccer related warm ups at http://www.professionalsoccercoaching.com. Go under the menu bars at the top and go to either pre-game or practice warmups.

Kids that age don't need a long warm up. A slow jog from one sideline to the other and back is more than enough, just to get their heart rate up.
The rest should be based on ball work in my opinion. Passing, shooting and posession football. Get the back 4 practicing their headers! And do a seperate warm up for the GK __________________ "...needless to say, I had the last laugh..."

Somedays I try to treat match day just like trainind so love all the ideas that introduce, the focus of that match. If you will ask them to go 1v1 more in matches than 1v1 is warm up. If you want them to keep posession more , rondas etc.
The players asked if they could run the warm up one day, I thought great, do you know what they did ??? Played a match! Genius! Who would have thought, just play a match to get ready for a match? __________________ Everybody Starts Somewhere...

We do a rondo, shooting, GK, or even light scrimmage (due to heads not in games fast enough on occasion)

For me, at U9 the warm up is, as mentioned above, a mini-practice session. It's 30 minutes long and I do stuff that will prep them to play. At that age they can always use time with the ball individually. So we start off with slow dribbling with the ball, using our entire half. Left and right feet, inside and out. We do turns, cruyffs, and other changes of directions. I intersperse dynamic stretching into all this, btw. When they look like they've warmed up we increase tempo and I have them execute moves and explode away.
Once we are good and warmed up individually we play quick games 1v1s or 1 big goal/2 small goals or simply a 5v5 on our half field. For older kids we'll play some keep away.
Then 3-5 minutes for quick instructions (usually a quick reminder of 3Gs) and positions and water.
Another variation is to just go through the Coerver Ball Mastery routines. Simply getting them moving, getting their core temperature up, getting the bad touches out of their system.

maybe its just me but the purpose of the warm up is to get the players ready to play the game. To make them physically, technically and tactically ready. The best way to do that is by playing ssg's. We do a little tag game, maybe a 1v1 or rondos then we play. Works wonder kids love it.
