The clinics run through term time and will follow a bespoke scheme of work that involves cycles to ensure development. The curriculum has been designed to include each of the core FA topics like first touch, striking the ball, defending, dribbling, and running with the ball. The sessions will be delivered, in an engaging, challenging, and safe environment; where the players are encouraged to play with freedom and creativity, solving on-going problems and making informed decisions; without the fear of failure.
All sessions allow the players to be experimental and try new things, this is also encouraged by all our coaches, and a philosophy we aim to run through all our delivery programmes.
Fantastic coach! Very enjoyable to see someone who understands the game and is able to teach those skills to young kids like my daughter. I highly recommend her.
Great passion for the game, really made my daughter feel at ease and made it fun. She was very accommodating to meeting us in the early morning at 6am to train. Fantastic!
Incredible training sessions! Outstanding coach.
Emily delivers a superb experience! She is a Grade-A coach. Highly recommend!
Small Sided Tournaments
Every scenario of football can be recreated in small-sided games, the stipulations of SSGs are the same as they are in large sided games. Decision making, technical execution, physical output are key elements to 2v2/4v4 as well as traditional 11v11. For younger players, these formats are essential to development, players receive the ball more regularly, more attacking and defending opportunities, encourages better shape and team-awareness and most importantly more goals!
With small-sided tournaments, any number of players can be involved meaning there are no subs. Even with odd numbers you can recreate under loaded and over loaded situations by having a floater that can move to any pitch at any time.
FFC would run these tournaments in order to replicate street football. Each week changing different factors like rules, age groups and team numbers to consistently challenge players and ultimately improve their decision making all through playing.
To add in competition players get individual points for winning games, at the end of the 10 week cycle we would have a ‘winning mentality‘ table showing one winner from each age group. The competition format is engaging and rewarding for all players.
Holiday camps are designed for players of all skill levels, if that’s just starting out or it’s a player’s main sport, everyone is welcome. Set in a fun, relaxed environment players days are planned around fun activities. Player will learn everything from basic skills to tactical concepts, as well as creating & denying space and leadership.
A typical day would include technical work and fun games in the morning, small sided games and small group exercises followed by an afternoon of tournaments and big sided games.
The main outcomes for players are enjoyment first and foremost, followed by learning and competitiveness. Striking the right balance of fun and learning keeps young players wanting more.
We aim to have all players actively participating in every activity throughout each session. Players can get over 1000 touches during camps, as well as enjoyment and learning to work with others.
