In the beginning, children are introduced to the rules of the game, taught how to kick the ball correctly, and they are given exposure to different soccer positions. Through fun, non-competitive games, children are taught how to turn the ball, dribble, shoot, and play simple games. After a few weeks, children are introduced to the fundamentals of the different tactics, such as passing the ball, attack and defense moves, and keeping the ball away from and taking the ball from the opposing team. Children learn to score and prevent goals. Physical endurance and fitness is emphasized while touching the ball. At this age, the focus starts to change from simple games to organized, tactical, competitive games. Hollywood Soccer Academy believes that roper coaching techniques enhance the soccer IQ of the player and we feel that this is a tremendous step for their development. Each training session is designed to help players achieve their maximum potential through progressive exercises that are age appropriate and individually and developmentally challenging.
