Youth Under 13’s
Our team is managed and coached by two FA qualified coaches. Training takes place on a Thursday evening and matches are played on a Sunday. The coaching sessions follow the FA coaching ethos where the emphasis is on teaching technical skills in a fun, safe environment where all players are free to express themselves and experiment with new skills and ideas.
The training sessions are designed to involve as many players as possible at the same time to maximise time spent with the ball and increase the number of touches everyone has (you won’t see players hanging around waiting for “their turn” at an activity). The coaching sessions are designed around different themes which change regularly to keep the players interested and motivated and ensure a comprehensive range of skills are taught. By teaching sound technical skills the players become experienced in, and enjoy playing in, the modern way embracing concepts such as: playing out from the back, pressing, passing and moving etc.
The majority of the squad have been together since we started out as an U8 team and, we think, this shows just how much the players enjoy being part of the squad and have developed strong friendships as a result of this. We have welcomed new players to the squad every season and the players, coaches and other parents always make new families feel welcome.
We now play competitive football which the players really enjoy. As well as the regular training sessions and football matches we try to get the squad together outside of this and have organised activities such as a stadium tour at Norwich City FC, entering a penalty competition held at the Norwich City Fan Zone and having a family summer football/beach day.
