This program, for 8 to 9 year olds, is to maximize the players’ soccer potential, while recognizing their different soccer backgrounds, techniques, and abilities. Our coaches will evaluate the children and will challenge them by grouping them with players of similar abilities.
The focus is on learning by doing. Children at this age are more able to reflect on their actions and learn from mistakes. The program is built on a large repertoire of soccer movements such as ball control, passing, dribbling, defending, and shooting.
The basic principles of play and tactical concepts are taught such as space, support, movement off the ball, and transition, in a fun and challenging environment.
60 minutes – Led by staff coaches. Parents must stay around the pitch.
