Mini Kicker Foundation Football – The early years.

Foundation football is an essential component to any club wishing to create the perfect football environment for children.

UC recognise the importance of creating the appropriate activity structures, and to help educate clubs with the correct methodology & attitude when it comes to U4 – U6 football. We also recognise the impact a coach can have with young players, ensure both the practice and activity is fun, engaging, challenging and stimulating.

Girls Football

One of our leading priorities is girls sport, and in particular girls football.  Whilst we recognise the differences when it comes to coaching & teaching boys & girls, the company strives to strengthen opportunities within both educational and club environments. Our team of coaches work in partnership with schools and clubs to introduce a host of exciting initiatives that will help encourage girls to take up sport and football outside of school;

  • Introduce girls specific programmes at schools
  • Support clubs with community outreach programmes to provide new opportunities for girls
  • Manage and deliver girls festivals in partnership with schools or clubs
  • Help develop girls technical training models at clubs
  • Help create pathways for girls in the game
  • Ensure the social elements and benefits are always a paramount feature

Observations:

  • We recognise that many girls are not always inspired by many sports within school environments.
  • UC understands that girl’s motivations and expectations are different to boys. We feel girls drop out of football and team sports largely due to the way coaches choose to coach girls.
  • Therefore, we recognise that some girls thrive within gender specific environments, and are more likely to embrace the experience and challenges presented.
  • Girls have more intrinsic motivations and have a different perception to team sport than boys.
