Over the course of the weekend we had so many sessions running, creating so many amazing moments and memories! We had over 50 sessions running as well as all of our teams could finally play again as the weather was lovely! At Pro Elite we always want to remember all the wonderful things we do each week and this way we can show you all what we get up to!
In our 18 months – 3 class this weeks focus was dribbling. We want all of our toddlers to be confident when the football is at their feet, this way they can start to be more independent and confident during sessions when we have to do our “little kicks”. We made this fun though by adding in the opportunity to score a goal on each turn. This allowed us to praise them a lot during the activity which is very important for a child’s confidence.
Our 3-5 class this week were focusing on skills, such as drag backs, toe taps and step-overs. These skills are quite advanced for this age, but as we try to work with each individual superstar, it allows us to take them through each individual element of the skill. We saw so many of our superstars able to complete these challenging skills. We are extremely proud of all of them.
During our 5-7 class, dribbling in pairs was our main focus. This focus allowed each child to dribble but do so under pressure, which makes it more match realistic. This will not only enhance confidence but also their ability during matches. When we moved into our matches you could see the improvements in so many of our superstars when they were dribbling.
See what we got up to this weekend here!
Our Development sessions are very important to us at Pro Elite, as we get our superstars ready to play for our teams. The theme this week was 1v1’s attacking. As this is so common during matches, we feel it is very important to get our children used to doing this. We had 2 different drills that incorporate different 1v1 scenarios. We then implemented this into the matches and gave them an incentive to use the 1v1 skills they have learned to score goals.
