Motspur Park FC’s Mini-Soccer Academy is aimed at players currently in school year 1 (and reception pupils born early in the school year) regardless of their footballing ability. These sessions focus on improving the players Agility, Balance, Coordination, and Speed by primarily working on close ball control entwined with fun, small competitions and games. We believe that every child should have a ball at their feet for at least 70% of the time. This soccer school greatly enhances the players close control and range of ball skills, as the season progresses the sessions begin to focus more on passing and movement with spatial awareness on the field (provided that the group is ready to progress). As well as improving players technical and physical aspects of the game we press great emphasise on the social and fun side of football.
This soccer school is designed to prepare players for joining an U7 team in the following season. We follow a curriculum designed by our specialist foundation phase coaches that is designed to develop players technique and enhance their understanding of the game by encompassing all four aspects of the FA player development model.
This is all reinforced with fun weekly homework tasks designed to consolidate learning and improve technical aspects of their game. Whilst we aim to improve players we place great emphasise on the social and fun side of football through the utilisation of fun themed activities.
These training sessions are for Year 1 male pupils (as of September 2020) only. Shin Pads and a Water Bottle will be required to participate. Please ensure appropriate clothing is worn in the winter months.
Despite coaches being trained in Emergency Aid and Safeguarding of Children, all with enhanced CRB checks at least one parent/guardian must be present at all times.
