At Field End Infant School all children are lucky enough to have football sessions throughout the year led by qualified FA coaches and professionals. A positive introduction to sport and a healthy lifestyle. In addition to this we offer football clubs after school for beginners and improvers which are tailored to different age groups.
School footballers, playground footballers, team footballers and professional footballers all understand the importance of skills. They are the object of fascination for many children and players as they see idols like Ronaldo dribble past defenders, skill and drive their way to scoring goals.
Skills in football take practice, hard work, creativity and self-confidence and are generally perfected through time and repetition.
In KS1 your child will focus on skills such as:
· Ball manipulation
· Turns and skills to beat other players.
· Working as a team
These are all fun to learn and can be practiced at home, but best learnt in a professional environment. In no time your child will be out-skilling you and speeding through the back garden or pitch!
