DURING THE FOUNDATION PHASE SESSIONS WILL FOCUS HEAVILY ON TEACHING ALL PLAYERS TO BECOME COMFORTABLE WITH 

A FOOTBALL AT THEIR FEET. SESSIONS WILL ALSO INCORPORATE LOTS OF SMALL SIDED GAMES AND BALL MASTERY.

AT THE END OF EACH 16 WEEK BLOCK, PLAYERS COMPETE IN SMALL SIDED FIXTURES IN AN IN-HOUSE GAMES WEEK.

GOALS ARE SCORED EVERY 2 MINUTES IN 4 A-SIDE FOOTBALL ON AVERAGE AND EVERY 4 MINUTES IN 7 A-SIDE FOOTBALL

GOALKEEPERS ARE INVOLVED IN THE ACTION 2 TO 4 TIMES MORE OFTEN IN 7 A-SIDE FOOTBALL THAN IN 11 A-SIDE FOOTBALL

THE BALL IS OUT OF PLAY 8% OF THE TIME IN 4 A-SIDE FOOTBALL, 14% IN 7 A-SIDE FOOTBALL AND 34% OF THE TIME IN 11 A-SIDE FOOTBALL
