Here at Prolific Striker Academy, our football training specialists run a core skills program for all boys and girls aged 7-11 regardless of “position”. Our goal is to offer the most comprehensive children’s football training program for children in the Bromley area. This program is all about embedding the key fundamentals and good habits to provide our players with a solid foundation for future progress.
Who can benefit from our core skills sessions? Do goalkeepers need to attend? Shouldn’t young strikers be practicing scoring goals? The fact is that, while every young player has their own interests and ambitions, they all need good foundations if they want to play the game competitively. The technique learned on our program can be applied to any role within a team, and regular sessions prepare each child to play wherever they want on the pitch and achieve their dreams.
Core Skill football training program includes:
Ball Mastery – The ball is the tool of a footballer’s trade and being able to use that tool properly is fundamental to an effective performance. Whether they are protecting the ball in tight areas or trying to create a shooting opportunity on goal, when a young player can confidently make the ball do what they need it to, they will have the edge over their opposition.
Technical Repetitions – A key element of our program is to practice and repeat set actions and patterns so that the move becomes second nature, allowing the player to think forward about what they are going to do next.
Receiving Skills – Being able to receive the ball correctly allows players to dictate where they want to go next, putting them in control.
1V1 – No matter how good a team is at working together, there will always be moments when it comes down to players facing each other one on one. To be able to confidently face an opponent and take them on in 1v1 situations will raise a player to the next level.
Ball Striking – striking the ball isn’t just about taking shots on goal. Players in all positions need to be able to “strike” the ball correctly with the right technique at all times, whether that be through a pass to a teammate, a clearance away from goal or a shot on goal. The right technique will allow you to deliver actions accurately and with power.
S&C – our Strength and conditioning (S&C) training drills incorporate the movement patterns which players are going to experience when playing football. Our drills typically cover agility, balance, co-ordination, speed and footwork.
