Premier Squad Holiday Camp
Our most Advanced and Technical Soccer Camp.
Our intensive program is for soccer players that want to be challenged and excelled.
We focus on Technical Drills and Skills to help develop young soccer players. We use the FFA curriculum to help guide their learning and give them an understanding of the game specific for their age.
U8 & U9
These 2 squads will be working in the Skill Acquisition Phase.
The foundation of the Skill Acquisition Phase is built upon:
The coach focusing extensively on providing a solid foundation of technical skill
If the player does not gain this skill foundation during this phase it will be very difficult to make it up later
No amount of fitness or competitive spirit will ever compensate for deficiencies in functional game skills
At this age, the children are ready for a more structured approach to training.
In every session the focus is on one of the core skills, from the beginning until the end of the session.
These 4 Core Skills are;
Running with the Ball
Striking the Ball
We will also be focusing on ‘the two constants’ that players need without the ball;
U10 & U11
These 2 squads will be continuing to work in the Skill Acquisition Phase.
An in depth look at the following will be put in to place;
First Touch - Controlling the ball with ALL body parts that are allowed
Running with the Ball - At Speed - Dribbling in tight areas. Protecting the ball and changing direction
Striking the Ball - Short and Long range passing. Shooting with pace and accuracy
1v1 - 2v1 - Avoiding opponents - decision making with the ball
We will also be looking at the crossover phase between the Skill Acquisition and Game Training Scenarios. Tactical Awareness and insight will help the players apply the Skill Acquisition learnt and apply them in a functional way.
