Helping Young Players Succeed
Many children don’t initially take to a team sport like soccer. It may be due to shyness, lack of experience, poor coordination or some other reasons. Whatever it is, this sets children up for less success, less enjoyment and ultimately they may leave the sport before they receive the benefits the sport has to offer.
These circumstances were the motivation behind establishing Kids FC in 2007. An opportunity to apply a non traditional and creative approach to soccer development to help more children succeed and in the end, fall in love with the game.
One of the key ingredients was to eliminate many of the negative aspects of junior soccer and give children an energetic program full of opportunities and possibilities.
The young modern child generally has poor coordination and movement skills. This is a consequence of their modern life, with computers, TV etc… Sport is not the default activity any more.
To address these issues, we wrote a program to improve players by addressing the gaps in their development. The mainstream philosophy of ‘just let them play’ isn’t enough for the modern child. Poor functional skills easily lead to compensatory actions and poor skill habits at a time when young players are forming the basis of their future sporting potential.
Next, we created, from 1st principles, a ‘game playing’ development program that has beginners achieving playing success in the shortest possible time. Many children don’t practice every day so the traditional approach doesn’t suit them. After coaching 1000’s of children, we know our development method is fool proof and works for everyone… guaranteed.
What You Can Expect
Kids Football Club sessions cover the critical aspects of gameplay, technical skill and the ABC’s of athleticism (agility, balance, and coordination).
We take the principles of small team games and combine them with the other equally important elements of the development puzzle for delivery in every session. Our approach is progressive and our methods ensure the correct development at the correct time without the team or competitive pressures in their early development years.
Of course, there’s plenty of opportunities to play games as we know every kid loves to do so.
