Pre-Academy Centre Review
Week Commencing: Monday 29th October 2018
Learning Block: Ball Mastery
Session Focus: Technical Carousel
As we come into the final two weeks of our Ball Mastery learning block, our Technical Carousel week gives our players the chance to experience a variety of different technical based challenges & games to be played competitively within their groups.
WHAT: For our Pre-Academy groups, we split our Technical Carousel into 3 different practices focusing on passing, receiving & dribbling - these are the key developmental areas for children in Reception - Year 2 as we start to lay the important foundations for our Pre-Academy players.
HOW: Each learning group spent 12-15 minutes in each technical practice before moving on to a new practice. Within the technical game, the emphasis is placed on ensuring each individual understands the technical outcomes of the practice & has the positive mindset of showing the effort needed to improve in that specific area.
WHY: There are many key areas of development for our Pre-Academy children & weeks like this are one of the most important within our syllabus as we really concentrate on improving the technical outcomes of our players in mini-practices & games.
Well done to our Players of the Week below who stood out within their groups.
Next session: 1v1 & 2v2 Competitions
We look forward to seeing all children this Wednesday and/or Saturday at our Bracknell Town & Berks County FC sessions.
If your son/daughter is interested in experiencing our Pre-Academy Centre, we offer a free two-week trial for all new players. To receive a Welcome Pack, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
