Fundamentals: 6 - 7 Years Old

 

This program strives to guide the technical development of young players as they continue to be introduced to the game. At this stage of development there is a strong focus on dribbling skills with the ball, so we try to keep a high ball to player ratio allowing for lots of contact time with the ball and opportunities to develop. The inclusion of structured small-sided games (1v1 to 5v5) allows young players to begin the process of transferring skills into game scenarios.
