Foundation Phase

8-11-Year-old - At the foundation phase of coaching, you should focus on fun, engaging, competitive game-related exercises. We focus on making sure the coach has a plan and the players will learn and grow from the exercises.  Young players want the coach to care. We encourage you to plan your practices and design them to be related to game scenarios. Our practice sessions involve decision-making, fun game-related exercises, and skills that are essential at this young age. Our technical activities incorporate some pressure, whether that is a competition or 1v1, 2v2, 3v3.

Development Phase

Social

The exercises will nurture cognitive development. Your players will gain the capability and the confidence to play the game intelligently.
