For coaches training 9-13 year old players
In the Skill Acquisition Phase the coach MUST focus on building a solid foundation of technical skill.
The course is conducted over 14 hours, is fully practical and deals with the development of the 4 Functional Game Skills:
First Touch, Striking the Ball, Running with the Ball, 1 v 1
These four Core Skills make up 95% of the actions of any outfield player during a game of football which is why it is critical to train these actions repeatedly so that the players have the opportunity to develop their ability to perform them more effectively during a game.
