Each session is focused on progressing 1 key football skill, while maintaining game realism
Feedback is used to encourage finding the best way to succeed, rather than identifying mistakes
Appreciation for when required skills, decisions and behaviours are executed
Fundamental movement skills are the foundation for players’ physical development which include the ability to run, jump, and change direction. Our main focus for physical development is body control which consists of :
Speed & Agility
Balance & co-ordination
Our technical curriculum ensures the opportunity for improvement in key technical football skills through both unopposed and opposed learning focusing on both consistent quality and adaptability in high pressure situations. Within a 6 week cycle, each player will have two sessions dedicated to improving :
Creating space and receiving
Shooting on goal
Tactical knowledge improves application of technical skills into a match situation, this includes individual decisions making such as which technique to use and when to use it, as well as knowing formations and positional roles and how to use these to execute a style of play or game plan.
Our teams look to play using simple and effective application of the key football skills learnt in sessions, while exhibiting the essential mental abilities of the typical Gameday Academy player.
“Football is a simple game based on the giving and taking of passes, of controlling the ball and of making yourself available to receive a pass.”
- Bill Shankly, Fmr Liverpool Manager
In addition, our teams will attempt to uphold the fundamental principles of a football match, where we look to typically exemplify a style of football which is :
POSSSESSION BASED : If our team has the ball, we want to keep the ball and use it with positive intent.
FOCUSSED ON BALL RECOVERY : If our team doesn’t have the ball, we want to get the ball back as quickly and effectively as possible.
