The under 14s

Head Coach

Our club has a its own style of play. Every CFC coach follows our Clubs own coaching curriculum. At this age players emerge from the foundation phase and should be equipped with the necessary technical skills and Futsal knowledge to allow them to develop down our elite pathway.

Our curriculum

At this age Futsal techniques should be engrained. There is a real focus on the ‘Futsal theory’ to be learnt at this age. All players should be proficient in 1v1 situations so that the focus can shift to working in pairs, 3 in a line around the court and roatation of position. Various systems of attack and defence are explored as we aim to expand Futsal knowledge in the players.

At this age we begin to move towards more specific Futsal training. The aim is to improve the knowledge of the rules, introduce training for a sport as an idea and not just learning through play and we begin to analyse mistakes to motivate players to train and improve.

Elements to learn include:

1. Counter attack after winning the ball back – speed of transition.
2. Creating lines of defence (Depth)
3. Attacking against lines of defence (Depth, width, penetration)
