Collingwood City FC (CCFC) seeks to offer a modern player development program through high-level and up to date coaching techniques. Coaches at CCFC specialise in children and junior training programs and their focus and passion is the development of boys and girls at this age. The training style and focus differs to Senior’s and requires great patience and understanding of the needs of this age to ensure full benefits are derived while maintaining fun and enjoyment.
The key focus is on participation in a fun filled environment that allows children to be active while learning new skills
The program introduces the basic fundamentals and builds on these as the players develop. At the end of each training the players are put into small teams and play in small sided games.
The smaller fields, modified rules and fewer players mean a more enjoyable game with more opportunities to touch the ball and more opportunities to score goals, once again increasing the likelihood of an overall positive experience.
The modified rules aim to promote inclusiveness, engagement and technical ability.
As your child progresses through the various age groups they will be introduced to playing environments that most suit their stage of development and prepare them for the transition to 11v11 football when the time comes.
