Academy / Underage Coaching in Corinthians
Over seventy coaches involved in schoolboy / schoolgirl coaching in Corinthians
Club coaching is focused on teaching children the basic skills of the game and on developing a child's general athletic ability, agility and flexibility. Each coaching session caters for a particular age group and this group is further broken down into smaller more manageable numbers where the kids are encouraged to learn at their own pace and to have fun.
The Club has over seventy coaches involved in the schoolboy / schoolgirls sections all of whom have achieved different levels of F.A.I Coaching qualifications. The Club also has in place it's own Schoolboy coaching Manual which together with the F.A.I Kick Start One and Kick Start Two Modules forms the basis for our Underage Coaching programme.
A typical Underage coaching session in Corinthians will involve 15 minutes on each of the following drills
SAQ – Speed , Agility, Flexibility
Small Sided Game
As the children get older the drills become more demanding but the emphasis will always remain on developing and enhancing the basic skills of a player.
