WELCOME TO MICA’S JUNIOR ACADEMY SESSIONS
FOR BOYS AND GIRLS AGED 5 – 11 YEARS OLD
The main focus of these fun and educational sessions is the long term development of your child.
Nurturing their talent at this key stage in their lives.
Our Junior Academy sessions will be based around:
Variation of turns, tricks and skill moves to ensure that your child gets lots of touches of the ball to help build confidence and self-esteem whilst developing spatial awareness and decision-making skills.
Passing & Receiving
Variation of passing and receiving techniques to help develop your child’s awareness of their own position on the pitch whilst enhancing their decision making and teamwork skills.
Attacking & Defending
1 vs 1’s and 2 vs 2’s moves encouraging dribbling, passing, shooting, tackling, blocking and decision making through individual and combination play, utilising the skills taught in ball mastery and passing and receiving.
Small sided games (group play)
3 vs 3’s games working up to 7 vs 7’s games using individual and team challenges. The emphasis of these games is on the development of each player NOT winning although healthy competitiveness is encouraged.
