At these ages the main focus is on developing and training a broad repertoire of motor skills (not just soccer: Climbing, jumping, throwing, simple games with a variety of balls, etc.) This way they develop movement skills applicable to any sport. We as a soccer club have a special responsibility, because many children start to participate in soccer and then might go on to other organized sports.

By age seven we shift our main focus on developing coordination. This is the foundation for the development of soccer-specific technical/tactical elements (ability to play). At the same time, players learn the rudiments of basic techniques like shooting, dribbling and passing. This is achieved through lots of small group games and competitions to make sure the kids have fun playing soccer.
