AGE APPROPRIATE FOOTBALL COACHING GROUPS
THE 2-4 YEAR OLDS
The youngest group (2-4 year olds) will be coached by ALAN but we appreciate parental participation so your child can enjoy the session more with your involvement. We will guide the children (and parent) on what the game is and we’ll demonstrate with the help of one/two of the children. The coaches will then move around each of the children to assist and play with each child. You will find that we like to use ‘humour’ as our medium for teaching children, they love it and so do we!
If your child does not want to follow the game we demonstrate, don’t worry, let them breathe and see what game they want to play. I have in the past actually changed the game to what a child wanted to play because it was better. There’s lots of equipment around that can entertain your little one, just help yourself and have fun.
THE YEAR FOUNDATION GROUP
This group will be coached by EOIN. Again, fun games is key to teaching the children but with a hint of more structure towards skill development. Children in this group will not require parental participation, if they do then the younger group would be more suitable for the child. The last 15 minutes of the session will be a small sided football match where we will introduce the game.
THE YEAR 1 GROUP
This group will be coached by JAKE. Football Coaching in this group will be strongly focused towards individual ball skill: receiving the ball, passing, dribbling, shooting and finding space. The last 20 minutes of the session will be a small sided football match where we will introduce teamwork. All our coaches are educated in understanding the how children learn, and that ‘FUN’ is a priority!
THE YEAR 2 & 3 GROUP
This group will be coached by ADAM. Football Coaching in this group will be evenly focused between individual ball skill and playing as a team. The last 25 minutes of the session will be a small sided football match where we will develop teamworking . All our coaches are educated in understanding the how children learn, and that ‘FUN’ is a priority!
Football coaching will take place indoors for the younger groups. Please ensure that your child wears appropriate clothing/football kit (Westpro Teamwear available), and brings a drinks bottle.
The oldest group will be coached outdoors on the astro-turf. So please ensure that your child wears appropriate outdoor clothing/football kit (Westpro Teamwear available), and brings a drinks bottle. Football Trainers/Astro trainers/Football boots Moulded studs/blades are acceptable on the Astro-turf BUT NOT FOOTBALL BOOTS WITH SCREW-IN STUDS.
Please don’t forget shin-pads because it doesn’t half hurt when studs scrape down your shins, oooouch!!!!
