Most football coaching programmes you will come across such as the Pro Clubs Football Development Centres will split their blocks into 6 weeks of the same focus for example 6 weeks of passing focus followed by 6 weeks of dribbling etc. At PSFA we approach it differently. Each block will follow this pattern: We believe this is much more engaging for young players!
Week 1: Dribbling Focus
Week 2: Focus on Turning with the ball
Week 3: Passing & Receiving the ball
Week 4: Shooting & Finishing
Week 5: Group Play- Attack vs Defence - Explore the Principles
Week 6: Match Night- Internal or external
This approach will be repeated for each block throughout the season, sometimes sessions may be repeated if the PSD Coach feels necessary dependent on individual and group needs.
