Individual Age Breakdown & Curriculum

The practices are designed to get the players familiar with the basic and complex movements in soccer, while giving them plenty of opportunities to gain confidence whilst dribbling the soccer ball. A very heavy importance of confident dribblers will be the main premise of the course. All activities will be designed to promote these facets of learning soccer in a safe, organized, and fun way.

U4 & U5
For ages 4 and 5 this program is intended to promote constant movement with and without a soccer ball, also this age is promoted by incorporating some ball skill included within a variety of games to keep the players constantly moving and getting touches on the ball.

Training's will typically include:
- Brief directions; repeated when necessary
- Lots of varied movement with and without ball
- Many Activities of short duration
- Lots of Water Breaks
- About 45 minute sessions
- Emphasis on familiarity and confidence with a soccer ball

U6 & U7
Ages 6 and 7 will focus on soccer-nastics (movements in every direction) and promotion of continued confidence with a soccer ball. This will be done through techniques such as "individual discovery" and "guided discovery". At this age the focal points of trainings will be ball mastery.

 Trainings will typically include:
- Brief direction, and brief player discovery
- A mixture of maze and target style games and activities
- Sessions running for about an hour
- Emphasizing ball mastery and individual discovery

At the ages of 8 and 9 players begin to start showing improved locomotive kills, so a less emphasis of "soccer-nastics" however; movement will still 
be a point of recognition. Also at these ages players have basic technical skills and cognitive recognition for the game. Focal points for ages 8 and 9
will include ball mastery as well as improved understanding of team skills. A large focus of individual discovery will be set for a higher level of cognitive ability from the players.

Trainings will typically include -
- Slightly more complex activities
- Mixture of individual and partner/team activities
- Sessions which run about an hour
- Emphasis on ball mastery and improved team skills
