Curriculum

The spring Academy will use skill development training and small sided games to focus on the following areas:

    Passing & Receiving

Improving basic passing and how to receive a pass comfortably and effectively. Decision-making: Pass to feet versus pass to space.

    Dribbling & Foot Skills

Developing ‘moves and fakes’, encouraging players to be creative on the ball in one versus one situations.

    Speed & Agility

A focus on balance, reactions and coordination as essential qualities for an effective soccer player.

    The Finishing School

An emphasis shooting and different ways of scoring goals including power finishing, passing into the goal, using both feet and improvisation.

    Game Awareness

The use of small sided and conditioned games to enhance effectiveness in game situations.

The above curriculum is a ‘foundation' for player development and will be reinforced and refined in future seasons as this age group of players develops coordination, physical strength and a knowledge of the game.
