This weekend we had so many superstars turn up to sessions across the whole weekend! Unfortunately due to the bad weather our internal league had to be postponed this weekend, but that didn’t stop us from still having an incredible weekend at Pro Elite!
This week in our toddler class, the main focus we had was on dribbling. This allows our youngest superstars to become comfortable on the football whilst having fun and making the activity very engaging. During the activity coaches ensured that each child was going “little kicks” getting them used to close control dribbling.
In our 3-5 class the main focus again was dribbling but inputting skills into this. The activity consisted of them doing “little kicks” but before they were allowed to score they had to do specific skills. Whether that was toe taps, ball rolls or even step overs. We wanted to test them as much as we can so that they persevere and become more confident in their skills.
The 5-7 classes focus this week was close control dribbling. We wanted to focus on dribbling to ensure each superstar becomes more confident on the ball. To make it more match realistic and competitive we made it a race, this ensured it was quick dribbling under pressure, to make them more confident to do it during any matches that they play.
Development Centre Sessions
This week during our development sessions our focus was 1v1’s both defending and attacking. This helps each individual with their confidence to beat players individually using their dribbling and skills. The session was overloaded with different scenarios going 1v1 to improve their confidence to do so during matches. Preparing them for when they eventually move onto our teams!
External League Teams
We had both our U11 and U12’s playing matches this weekend. Both teams playing very well and battling hard against very good opponents. Our U11’s won their match, playing incredible football throughout! Our U12’s unfortunately lost their match, but not through not working hard and playing some fantastic football during the match, showing what they have learned during training.
Overall it was another fantastic weekend for Pro Elite where we saw so many superstars flourishing and growing as individuals. We love seeing how much each child grows with each passing week. Hopefully our internal league returns next week so we can have even more incredible moments.
