Community

Fun and inclusive, we know that the social interaction involved in our program is just as important as any one ball skill. Children will learn how to interact and communicate in a social, stress-free environment, learning how to share, take turns, listen to instructions and work as a team.

Our Philosophy

Our program focuses on the core principles of football, being the Skill Acquisition Phase, with an emphasis on having fun but also on developing a player’s technical ability.

To best achieve this, a player’s technical development is broken down into 4 core game skills:

  1. First Touch – controlling and receiving a pass.
  2. Striking the Ball – passing and finishing.
  3. Running with the Ball – changing direction and running at speed.
  4. 1v1 – deception and defending.

The Football Focus program will offer opportunities for players to repeatedly carry out one of the above skills in a session, supporting players to use a certain skill in a variety of situations.

The emphasis of the program being how critical to a player’s learning that repetition of particular skill in varying situations will allow them to perform more effectively during a match
