6-a-side league open to players in age groups, U12 - U16.
Secondary Sixes launched on Friday 24th February 2017 at Bracknell Town FC and encourages grassroots teams, school/house teams or simply groups of friends to team up and compete in a positive, competitive & enjoyable 6-a-side league every Friday evening on the brand-new 3G pitch at Bracknell Town FC.
Following straight on from our very popular Let Me Play youth night, Secondary Sixes has already proved to be a big hit for young children aged 12 - 16 with the inclusion of a variety of teams of all abilities. Throughout the mini-seasons that we offer, players get the vital opportunity to take control of team selections and tactics without the need of an adult manager and/or coach. Secondary Sixes allows young children to make decisions for themselves both on & off the pitch which ultimately helps teamwork and social skills, as well as decision-making in group discussions.
On the pitch, Secondary Sixes allows players to have the freedom to play football with their friends and team-mates in an enjoyable, non-pressurised environment. Through the 6 v 6 format, players are introduced to more touches on the ball in a tighter space which raises technical ability and decision-making in tight situations. Each fixture is 40 minutes long played on a brand-new 3G surface which raises the tempo and speed of the game, this can help players physical profile by working harder and running for longer periods in the game that can increase game endurance and fitness.
We believe our Secondary Sixes is an important development tool for the 4 key areas of development - Social, Technical, Physical & Psychological, and allows players to be creative in a positive environment with EPC coaches in attendance to support.
4 age group leagues are open for entries - U12s/U13s (Combined), U14s, U15s, and U16s with a maximum of 6 teams playing per league in a 10-week season.
