This is the second step of our Academy structure and is designed for children aged between 5-6 years old. At this early stage of their development stimulating their imagination is a major key for their continued enjoyment. These years in a child’s life are full of excitement and energy so when they attend Junior Shooters we ensure to have an environment that is more than ready to meet their needs and will allow them to throw themselves wholeheartedly into the sport they love to play.

At Junior Shooters we begin to focus on the learning of different individual skill moves and ball mastery techniques in order to continue to develop the players skills based around moving with the ball. Dribbling along with scoring goals is the biggest enjoyment for young players so by building these fundamental moves and creating a foundation of skills, we will create technically accomplished players and give them a great platform to build on once the they reach 7 years old and graduate into our main Academy.

It is now that the concept of 1v1 is brought into action giving our players more understanding of direction, spacial awareness and players around them.

Some of our core principles:

  • Ball Mastery
  • Dribbling
  • Skill Moves
  • Shooting
  • Finishing

  • Co-ordination
  • Speed
  • Balance
  • Knowledge
