IMPROVE THE GRASSROOTS LEVEL OF SOCCER IN THE KITCHENER, WATERLOO, CAMBRIDGE & GUELPH/ERAMOSA AREA

Our aim is to train and improve the likes of soccer players of all levels to enable them to achieve and compete at a higher standard. FFTW Development works with boys and girls aged 6-12 years old from all different soccer skill levels and soccer backgrounds. Our program looks to improve your childs soccer IQ and overall performance on the pitch through an individual level alongside being able to function in a team environment. This program is for any player who truly loves the game of soccer and who wants to improve in all aspects of the game in a fun and challenging environment.

 

FFTW DEVELOPMENT IS A ONE OF A KIND PROGRAM WHERE YOUR CHILD WILL DEVELOP IN TWO KEY AREAS, TECHNICALLY (AS AN INDIVIDUAL) AND TACTICALLY (AS A MEMBER OF A TEAM)

 

KICKING TECHNIQUE (PASS & SHOOT)

Players will learn how to pass and strike the ball with all different parts of their feet. A focus is put on when to use which technique at any given time in a match scenario. Practicing and mastering the ability to pass with both feet is also a key element in this section.

 

CONTROL ABILITY (GROUND & AERIAL)

 

Players will learn how to control the ball both on the ground and in the air. Players will learn which type of control to use depending on whether they are being marked or not. The three key elements of this section include how to cushion, protect and travel with the ball.

 

DRIBBLING SKILLS (SPEED SKILLS & TURNS)

Players will learn a variety of different speed skills and turning techniques. Speed skills can be used to beat a defender and turning techniques will help your child get that little bit of extra space on the pitch to make something happen.

 

ATTACK VS. DEFENSE

This area will focus on ‘transition play’. Players will learn how to react when losing or gaining the ball in relation to where they, their teammates and the opponents are. Key elements include when to counter attack and how to recover when losing the ball.

 

POSITIONAL PLAY

Players will learn where they should be on the pitch in relation to the ball, where their teammates and where the opposition is. They will be given the opportunity to try different positions and roles and have a better understanding of what is expected in each position without limiting creativity.

 

POSSESSION

The camps will place an emphasis on how to keep possession of the ball. Through gaining confidence in your abilities and becoming more relaxed on the ball this can be achieved. Players will gain an understanding of finding the best option as opposed to just kicking the ball without looking
