It does not matter how young they are, although they do need to be able to walk and run, so usually, they start with us around 3 years of age. We have however had as young as 2 years old training with this group.
As an inclusive football club, we’re happy to integrate boys and girls at a very young age to start learning the beautiful game.
Usually, they would stay with the Mini Football Aces up to the age of 6. Then depending on their ability levels and confidence, the individual the players push on and move into training sessions with U7’s.
So the Mini Football Aces sessions are all based on dribbling, passing, shooting, tackling and basic goalkeeper position.
Parents joining in is a massive help to the players and the coach as children in this group lose focus easily and parents can help keep that focus.
It helps to show their child what to do when really it is all about fun and encouragement in this group.
