All U6s will be given the opportunity to join our foundation programme (U7s-U9s) at the end of the season.
During the pre-foundation programme all players have the possibility to be recruited for our development squad(s)
In the pre foundation groups we focus on making learning fun and playing numerous games with a hidden agenda. Lots of touches on the ball with ball manipulation on a weekly basis. Children at these age groups are naturally selfish with the ball so we hone in on this to encourage dribbling techniques, skills, running with the ball effectively and turn this into a powerful attribute for them to use and gain confidence on the ball.
