Scottish Soccer Academy Skill Center & Small Sided Games League
This is open only to U8/U9 players on a first come first served basis.
We work on 1 skill per week, we build it up to 'match speed' and then play our small sided games league.
The semi finals and finals in the past have been AMAZING.
Don't miss this one!
This training program is one that Simon developed and coached in Scotland.
Each player will work closely on a particular aspect of skill development. That skill will be brought into the warm up and developed until the player is doing it naturally at full pace.
"It drives me mad to see a training session where 4, 5 or even more different skills are introduced. By the end of the session these players may have been shown the tricks and tried them out however, they will not have learned them, they will not be ready to beat an opponent with the skill and I can guarantee they will not be ready to execute the trick at the correct time or pace in a game."
So we will use these winter weeks of soccer downtime to home in on some skills and work on them properly, build them up to match level and move on to the next one only when the player can naturally perform the skill in a game.
The players will also be encouraged throughout this 11 hour program to become creative players by motivating and stimulating confidence in players to develop skills and game sense.
The games will bring FUTSAL & 4v4 Soccer together.
Both these games are renowned for skill development and are great fun.
When the winter comes this program will keep the players playing and developing their soccer and fitness.
We have found the perfect venue that gives us the Futsal fast play and the width for 4v4.
The teams will play every other team and from there the results will determine the league table. Every team will play in a final championship game.
The team who wins in the final '1st v 2nd' game will be the champions.
