PLAYER DEVELOPMENT IS OUR GOAL​


COACHES
Work to understand individual players, and the areas in which they require support and the best methods for helping them develop and learn.​

All coaching is age and ability appropriate so that each player develops in the best way possible. 

Our coaches have experience, knowledge and skills to work effectively with specific age-groups

Coaches have un-wavered technical knowledge and have an appreciation of the effect that age, stage and level of development have on a youth player

All coaches will refrain from imposing unrealistic expectations.

WE TRAIN AS WE PLAY
Skill set, technical ability and tactical understanding will all be covered. This will help each player be comfortable in possession of the ball in any position on the field. Speed of play, and playing styles will be coached within high tempo enjoyable sessions. 

IN POSSESSION
A possession-based approach played through the three-thirds of the field.
Quality passing and intelligent movement and support off the ball.
Penetrative, incisive and varied attacking play, allied to good finishing.
Counter-attacking whenever opportunities arise.

Additionally, the playing philosophy actively encourages the individualistic player. Players with varied and unique dribbling skills and the dexterity to go past defenders, particularly in the final-third.

OUT OF POSSESSION
A tactical approach to defending, in which all players contribute.
A controlled, calculated and assertive approach when and where necessary.​​
