It is that time of the season where as a club we continue our focus on the basics of football and getting better as players!
Our Skills Session's will be based on our Football Philosophy and FFA Curriculum of helping our Children to be exciting and attacking players who are comfortable with the ball at their feet.
This year we will be doing things slightly differently to the previous years. We have been able to get access to a unique online coaching platform that will form part of the work outside of the sessions.
We will be running the skills sessions on a Monday night, and there will be two groups.
These sessions will be taken by Director of Player and Coaching Development, Yanek Pearce and Assistant Head Coach and NPL Women's Player Scottie Walker.
We will be utilising the age groups that are described in the FFA Curriculum.
Sessions will be limited to 20 players per coach, therefore 40 players per hour.
Monday at Samford Parklands
6:30 - 7:30 Discovery Age Groups (U6 - U9)
7:30 - 8:30 Skill Acquisition (U10 - U13) + Game Training Phase (U14 - U18).

Once we have seen the attendance numbers and the ability of the Children taking part we may change how the groups are structured and divided so that we can make sure our Children are getting the attention they need. This may include moving Children between groups and changing the age groups of the sessions.
We have been able to get access to an exciting online coaching resource which all players who sign up for the skills sessions will get access too.
mypersonalfootballcoach.com has been designed by a leading Children Skills Coach, Saul Isaakson Hurst and ex colleague of Yanek from his time at Tottenham. Saul has worked as Head of U9 - U12 Skills coaching at both Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspurs. Once signed up we will give each kid access to the platform where Yanek and Scottie will be able to see how the Children are progressing and also give specific feedback and set goals for Children where needed.
The Skills Sessions will cost $25 for the term and will run for 7 weeks up till the June/July school holidays.'
Pre-registration is required.
