7th - 9th Grade

Fun Football: 7 - 9 Years

Mastering the Ball via Playful Technical Training.

Fun Football continues the fun theme incorporating small sided games (5 aside for 7th and 8th grades and 7 a side for 9th grade) with minimal interference from parents and game leaders.

Players can be taught basic techniques through exposure to small games that have specific technical outcomes whilst still allowing the freedom of flair and creativity to develop. It is important here to keep the adult pressure of ‘winning’ out of Fun Football, to encourage skill development.

We run "Girls Only" teams (a mixture of 8th and 9th Grade players) in our 8th Grade session.
