Our class format is developed to give our budding soccer stars a familiar framework in which they can excel from class to class. Our classes begin with a welcome, incorporating a song for the early stages age groups (2 – 5 year olds) and a cheer for the independent stages (5 – 16 year olds). The classes then kick off with a dynamic warm-up followed by muscle-warming stretches to get everyone ready for action.
The bulk of each class focuses on skill development activities and games which include progression, pressure and direction with an ending point (i.e. goal or end line). Skill development is the central piece of the class, focusing on the basic skills which are integral to the game of soccer (i.e. dribbling, passing, shooting, and defending) to optimise the experience for each child. Every session culminates in a match-based game (adapted variations for younger age groups) to familiarise each child with the structure of a game setting, while always encouraging our players with positive reinforcement.
