Our smartfootball School provides an excellent introduction to football for excited youngsters who are bursting to play! Focusing on the fundamental skills, and a style of coaching designed to improve football intelligence, our sessions are designed to ensure learning takes place in a fun and safe environment.
What the program offers
We ensure that players from ages 3 to 12 years old are given an enjoyable introduction to football, at a level that is appropriate for each individual player. Our smartfootball methodology is incorporated into every 90 minute session. This Spanish style of coaching not only teaches players to think technically but also enforces their understanding of the game.
For 3 to 5 year olds, our 45-minute ‘Mini Dribblers’ session is a fun-filled way to get your child playing from an early age. The focus of these sessions is pure enjoyment as players learn basic skills and start to familiarize themselves with the ball. Our Mini Dribblers will focus on agility, balance & coordination (ABCs).
Once the Mini-Dribbler turns 5, we eventually phase them into the 90-minute smartfootball School sessions, which incorporate mainstream methodologies. Enjoyment continues to be at the forefront of these sessions as we begin to introduce more advanced and age-appropriate training drills to continue our players’ development.
Beyond the smartfootball School
Although our smartfootball School only accommodates children up to the age of 12, players can transition up to our smartfootball Academy
once they have reached the appropriate level. Our academy is for players aged U8 + and focuses on both the practical & theory elements of the smartfootball methodology.
Furthermore, our Futsal program is for U5s up to adults, allowing players to continue their development with Go4Goal. Find out more about our futsal program here
