The Foundation Phase (FP) England DNA - Wednesday 22nd April

Mastering the basics - What is this workshop about?

In this workshop we explore the key principles of the Foundation Phase. We look at the best ways to engage younger players and how to help them develop their skills on the ball. Mastering the ball can be tough for younger players. Building confidence in possession is vital at this stage of a child’s development, we must give players as much time on the ball as we can in the foundation phase. This is a fundamental building block that all later development is built upon. However, before we start working with our players, we need to know our players. Why do they play? What do they enjoy? What is their relationship with sport? Once we know the answers to these questions we can introduce the right games and challenges for our team and tailor our sessions. During this workshop we will explore these ideas in the classroom and through practical activities and games with children on the pitch.

What are the learning outcomes?

• Understand the coaches role in creating a fun and engaging environment that ultimately leads to lifelong enjoyment of the game

• Discover a template of small sided games that help children learn how to make effective decisions

• Recognise the benefits of using a constraints based approach to help guide players in their decision making and technical development.

Venue - Cromwell Community College  

Time - 6:30pm-9:30pm
