We are delighted to team up with Gold Coast based coaching company Soccer X Pty Ltd to provide a professional coaching programme for U5-7 players. all sessions/matches will take place at our state of the art facility in Robina, meaning a safe and enjoyable experience for all.
For many children, these years will be their first taste of playing Soccer. At this age it will all be about creating a fun learning environment for the young players to develop basic skills such as dribbling, starting with the ball and turning. All sessions will be designed to ensure that the players are kept captivated and motivated throughout, ensuring each player has fun and feels part of the group.
As well as preparing the player for the next step along the Soccer X Pathway
these sessions will help develop and improve the following attributes:
- Passing & Moving
- Individual ball skills
- Basic understanding of special awareness
- Basic team work skills
We believe these ages provide a great opportunity to introduce good habits from a young age. The programme is all about giving players maximum contact time and involvement with the ball.
Players will be split into groups according to age and ability.
Each week the children will attend two sessions;
Skills/technique work teaching the children the basic fundamentals of the game and encouraging them to use good habits from an early age. Each week will cover a different theme with the aim of creating well rounded players by the end of the season.
Small sided matches – the 2nd
session of the week is all about putting the new skills/techniques learnt in the previous session into practice during a small sided match. The children will be guided through the games by our coaches with the main emphasis on encouraging each player to have maximum involvement resulting in maximum improvement and most importantly enjoyment.
All sessions will be designed to ensure that the players are kept captivated and motivated throughout, ensuring each player has fun and feels part of the group.
We would anticipate by the time the players reach the U8’s age group they will be ready to join one of our Development teams and play against other local teams across the Gold Coast.
