President’s Day – February 20, 2017
4v4 Challenge

“Play – unstructured, free range, loosely supervised play – is the birthright of every child.”

  • Many touches of the ball
  • Many opportunities for everyone to score goals
  • Lots of problem solving opportunities without coaches talking you through the game
  • Kids are not just a defender or an attacker but a footballer and have a much better all round understanding of the game

A study by the FA in England showed that 4v4 clinics generate (compared to 8v8 games):

  • Number of passes – increase of 135%
  • Scoring attempts – increase of 260%
  • Number of goals scored – increase of 500%
  • Number of 1v1 encounters – increase of 225%
  • Number of dribbling skills (tricks) – increase of 280%

Each game is 5-8 minutes long, and the players will play numerous games in the 2-hour period. Players will have many different teammates throughout the day, and will earn points when their team wins. Also, very importantly the children referee their own games. This allows them to take responsibility, communicate with the opposition and sort out any problems. This helps with their social development skills. The coaches also take a back seat and just encourage. This allows children to express themselves more, problem solve, and think for themselves.
