Our FC Academy sessions are based on the Mini Soccer philosophy, a scaled down version of association football, smaller pitches and fewer players. Skills that will be taught include dribbling, turning, passing, heading, shooting, co-ordination amongst many others.
Why small sided? A very simple answer – small sided games mean more football and more involvement in the game. It maximises involvement in real football situations. More goals, shots, saves, passes, dribbles, tricks and tackles.
It makes it easier for coaches to observe where players are in their development. All players attack and defend in a game rather than being stuck in one position. More freedom to explore the game and ultimately MORE FUN!
