Our u10/11s Curriculum

At this age our squads are learning the basic rules of the game. The ‘Futsal theory’ needed to be learnt at this age includes:

  1. Where to play including positions and the court boundaries.
  2. What happens when the ball goes out of play (4 second rule, getting set, stop clock)
  3. Number of players and substitutions.
  4. Game length.
  5. How to play the ball.
  6. Behaviour towards the opposition.
  7. Sanctions including technical and discipline.

Players also need to cover the following elements which have been broken down under heading using the FAs four corner model for ease of understanding. Our coaches will deliver their sessions ensuring players cover all of this before moving onto the next stage of the curriculum. 


Team Tactics

There should be no specific team organisation, the game should be played with general instruction.

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.

Individual Tactics

Players should be constant and active at all times during the game.

Introduce the idea of attack & defence.

Attacking elements to learn including
1. Progress towards the oppositions goal
2. Help the player with the ball
3. Losing a marker
4. Finding space
5. Quick decision making when on the ball

Defensive elements to learn:
1. Introduce the concept of marking, frustrating/annoying opposition.
2. Ball interception


Attacking techniques to be learnt include:

  1. Shooting (power and accuracy)
  2. Biomechanics (Approaching the ball to pass or shoot)
  3. Fluidity of movement
  4. Correcting deficiencies in how players strike the ball
  5. Dribbling (using both feet)
  6. Passing & receiving 

Defensive techniques to be learnt include:

  1. Balance when marking opposition
  2. Body position to facilitate interception


Be reactive to the players at this age, let them tell you what they want to do at times, make sure learning is fun. Always promote:

  1. Good behaviour
  2. Respect for others

Physical Aspects

Drills and practices should ALWAYS incorporate a ball. Never use session time to train players on physical elements. Practices and drills should be designed to improve:

  1. General dynamic coordination
  2. Hand eye coordination
  3. Perception & spatial awareness
  4. Consolidation of static balance and development of dynamic balance
  5. Develop the dominant foot
  6. Consolidate general coordination and proprioception
  7. General overall physical ability
