DEVELOPING THE PLAYER

At Elite Football Coaching, all sessions are professionally designed & delivered to offer a player focused approach & develop players on an individual basis, while allowing them to progress at their own speed in a low pressure but testing environment.

FOUNDATION PHASE PHILOSOPHY

During the Foundation Phase, our sessions are designed & delivered with a heavy focus on individual player development

Sessions are designed for players to develop a mastery of the ball & all players are encouraged to be exciting & positive in possession

Our Foundation Phase sessions promote a holistic approach based upon the FA’s four-corner model for long- term player development

The FA four corner model encompasses four key attributes that are vital for any developing young footballer:

 

Physical, Technical, Psychological & Social elements

WHAT TO EXPECT FROM A FOUNDATION PHASE SESSION

A PROFESSIONAL & PRESSURE FREE, PLAYER FOCUSED ENVIRONMENT

WE AIM FOR A MINIMUM 70% BALL ROLLING TIME IN ALL SESSIONS

INTERACTION & PLAYER REFLECTION AFTER EACH SESSION

At Elite Football Coaching we believe that players learn the most when they have a ball at their feet.

Because of this, our Foundation Phase sessions incorporate lots os small sided games.

Statistics back up the benefits of small-sided football compared with 11- a-side football.

Some of these statistics show that:

Players touch the ball five times more often in 4-a-side football and 50% more in 7-a-side

Players are three times more often in one-against-one situations in 4-a-side football and twice more often in 7-a-side

Goals are scored every two minutes in 4-a-side football on average and every four minutes in 7-a-side

The ball is out of play 8% of the time in 4-a-side football, 14% in 7- a-side and 34% in 11-a-side
