Last week saw the start of our Futsal Development Programme at Edgebarrow Sports Centre for children in U7 & U8 age groups.
Last week's learning focus was the first in the Ball Mastery phase of our syllabus and revolved around our 3 key words for the day; 'HIDE - MANOEUVRE - SHOW'. The players participated in a variety of activities that tested their abilities to manipulate the ball under intense pressure from an opponent and their abilities to attack space.
Next weeks topic sees us continue with our Ball Mastery phase and will take the players on a journey through 'Manipulating The Ball To Play Forward'. This will build on from this week's topic because as players become more comfortable keeping the ball under pressure and attacking space with the ball, we can begin to add a positive end product to their dribbling.
Keep on eye out for more updates, reviews/previews, home learning videos and from next week, player of the week photos!
Our U7 & U8 session is currently full, however your son/daughter can join a waiting list if they are interested in joining our programme. We will soon be announcing a start date for our U9 - U11 programme at Edgebarrow on a Thursday evening.
