The under 9s

Head Coach

At this age our squads are learning ball mastery skills, the basics of Futsal technique. The ‘Futsal theory’ needed to be learnt at this age is very limited and the focus is on creating players who are capable both in offensive and defensive 1v1 situations. As such we employ a man marking approach in defence and have a big focus on freedom on the ball and working in pairs around the court. 

Our coaches will deliver their sessions ensuring players have a good technical basis and a real enjoyment of scoring and preventing goals.

Our club has a its own style of play. Every CFC coach follows our Clubs own coaching curriculum and in the foundation stage (age 5-11) it is designed to ensure players are equipped with the necessary technical skills to allow them to develop down our elite pathway from age 12 onwards.

Our curriculum

Team Tactics

We introduce the idea of working in pairs for the benefit of the team and translate this into basic tactical formation ideas for match play. All other team tactics at this age are ignored. At this is age it is still about the individual.

Game are played with general instruction only. Instructions by coaches are given at breaks in play only never during the game. In attack focus on moving the ball towards the oppositions goal to find a suitable shooting position.

In defence the aim is to prevent a goal and recovering possession of the ball with individual responsibility.
