Our aim is to ensure every child that enters our programme will reach their full footballing potential (whatever potential that may be) by the time they exit our programme. Our coaches achieve this through our positive and fun approach to every session as well as our age specific, in-depth curriculum.
All of our classes focus on physical development (gross-motor and fine-motor skills), cognitive development (thoughts, reasoning, imagination, problem solving and decision-making), and social-emotional development (friendship, trust, bonding, confidence, pride and humour). This is evident in our practices, games and excellent coaching throughout our programme.
Our aim is to not only develop technically accomplished players but also to make sure every class promotes positive experiences that create well-rounded children who are confident, full of self-worth and think outside the box.
"Experience is the chief architect of the Brain"
Physical Development occurs through the direct avenue of football activities and games. We focus on children's gross-motor development (running, skipping, jumping, hopping) and fine-motor development (small touches, skills, turns, balance and co-ordination).
Cognitive Development is evident in our classes through their imagination. We all know a child's imagination is a powerful tool and we let it loose in our adventure classes where problem-solving and decision making occurs through colours, actions and adventure scenarios.
The children problem solve through scenarios generated in the different adventures, learning new skills and making decisions when best to use them. We also actively encourage children to use their imagination to perform these skills to beat opponents.
Social-Emotional Development in our classes foster an environment of positivity which allows confidence, trust and pride to grow. It create a sense of self-worth and self-esteem which helps to develop positive relationships. This sense of self-worth and confidence can be transferable and improve other aspects of the child's life, including school work and behaviour.
