Girls Football Development

Tiny Tekkers are looking at starting up a girls only football session.   

These sessions will be put on to allow girls to participate in football sessions without fear of competing with “boisterous boys” and we have also found that on the whole girls tend to respond better to a different coaching style. Our sessions are open to girls aged between 5-10 years old.

Between the ages of 5 and 11 the Football Association (FA) calls this “The window of opportunity”.  95% of a child’s neuro development is within these 6 years.  To think we only improve by another 5% after 12 years old is a little scary – so you can see how important these early stages are! This is why we want to get more girls participating in football from an early age with the hope of them staying on to play through their teenage years and beyond.

Also by giving them a sound sporting foundation will set them up for whatever sport they decide to play in the later years? What and how you teach them at this stage is a decisive factor on their final ability level.

We teach the basic skills and then evolve, fine tune and set them on their way through our fun and challenging coaching programme. Using more in depth game related exercises & scenarios, we challenge them to improve their basic motor skills in game situations. SAQ drills are also an integral part of these session improving, speed, agility and quickness using fast feet ladders and hurdles.
