Program: U4 (2021) Bumblebees
Engaging children in a safe, fun and rewarding environment
It is essential that young players are exposed to a high quality experience that is designed to meet their needs. This will be their first experience of playing soccer in an organized 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.
What does the player need at this stage?
The key to providing a high quality experience is understanding the needs of 4-6 year old children. Through understanding the stage of development they are at, and how they see the world, we can create a positive coaching and playing environment. Remember, we are developing the person and not just the player.
