First Kicks | Under six years

First Kicks | Under six years

For FC Players born in 2016 to 2018. 

For FC players born in 2014 or 2015, please refer to our Fun Football information.  For FC players born 2013 or earlier, please refer to our Junior Football information.

The First Kicks programme is designed to provide a fun and enjoyable experience for both new and experienced junior players. In those grades we are offering to our members a programme based on the four school terms. You may register your child for any of the terms you like at any time during the term and pay ONLY for the remaining of the programme when you join.

Our programmes are run by our Development Officers Dennise, Tobi and Jacob supervised by our Director of Football – Tsetso and assisted by Youth players and Volunteer Parent Coaches.

Providing Children a safe, fun and rewarding environment to learn Football
It is essential that our young players are exposed to a high quality experience that’s designed to meet their needs. This will be their first experience of playing Football in an organised environment, which can be the deciding factor for whether they fall in love with sport or not. This initiation phase allows children to discover the game at their own speed and creates a positive experience with an emphasis on fun and enjoyment.

First Kicks is for our players aged 4, 5 and 6 (the age they turn during the year).

We offer three sessions.

Training Session – at each training players are divided in small groups by the coaches. This programme is based around the FUNdamentals of Football. In every training we focus on FUN games which develop some of the basic motor skills such as running, jumping, change of direction, alongside dribbling and shooting games.  There is also a set of 1v1 and 2v2 activities and small sided Games designed to boost the confidence of the young Footballers.

Game Day – Here players are divided in groups between 16-20 players in the beginning of each term. This programme purely focuses on the Game. After a short warm up mainly with balls, we use a few different game activity to put the players in situations where they have Fun, but they will also get challenged and forced to make their own football decisions. At the end of every game day in the last game we play “Golden Gol” – which means regardless of the score whoever team scores the “Golden Gol” – wins the game and more importantly the Goal scorer is the “Super Hero”

Futsal  – This programme is aimed at providing a different feel for the game of Football. These trainings will be never cancelled due to the weather or sports ground closures. We will be using a Futsal specific ball and players will foster their skills due to the smaller court size compared to outdoors. The trainings are designed to play a lot of fun games in order to improve players feeling for the ball and their first touch. This programme will start in Term 2 and will be held at St Thomas’s College Gym.

If it’s raining…

If we need to cancel training or a game day due to bad weather, we will update our Facebook page 2 hours prior the event. Normally with light rain we let the session go ahead (unless parks are closed by CCC)

How to best support your child and their team
The best way to help your child is to

  • have them attend training  and/or game day and be on time
  • teach your child to play by the rules, respect game officials and respect others
  • provide lots of positive encouragement from the sidelines because it is the best way to support the team and your child

 

What Your Child Will Need

  • Shin pads are essential – no shin pads, no game
  • FC Twenty 11 Playing Shirt – can be purchased through our online shop
  • FC Twenty 11 Playing Shorts – can be purchased through our online shop
  • Red Socks – can be purchased through our online shop
  • Adequate footwear – football boots or training shoes are preferred (no gum boots or open toed shoes)
  • A hat for the sunny days or a beanie for the cold days
  • Water bottle – a full drink bottle is an essential
  • Warm clothing for after the session

 

Loss of Interest
Kids will occasionally lose interest and not want to take part. This is OK; it happens to all of us at some stage. If this does occur let them come back in their own time or have a quiet word to the coach who can help slowly re-integrate the child back into the game.

Slipped Halos
Every now and again kids will become upset and disruptive. If this does occur the coach will intervene to address the behaviour, as a parent we would ask you to support your coaches’ actions.
