MORE THAN JUST FOOTBALL FOR KIDS
BSS: Ages 11+
By the time children have reached the oldest age group, their technical foundation has been laid. Therefore we are ready to open up new chapters in the programme addressing players’ tactical, physical and mental development. At these ages they will have an increased intelligence and physical profile, which will enhance their understanding of these chapters. Players will not be limited to one position but encouraged to gain a full appreciation of the experiences that come with participating all over the field of play. With this we introduce team play techniques – we play in various combinations: from 1 vs 1 to 11 vs 11 using FDS footballs well as the introduction of more conventional Size 4 and 5 balls. We strengthen players’ general fitness and diet, focusing more on competition using elements of both Futebol de Salão and conventional gameplay in practice, whilst continuing to reinforce all the techniques introduced earlier in the programme.
