Football Games Booklet, 5-7 years old

Football Games Booklet, 5-7 years old

As part of the #WePlayStrong initiative, this booklet with training sessions for 5 to 7 year olds has been issued.

The booklet contains 12 fun games, which have been designed to help everyone to create their own training sessions. All the activities reflect the spirit of Together #WePlayStrong, and will enable parents, educators and coaches alike to organise well-structured, fun and effective training sessions for girls.

The ethos is that each coaching session should contain one game from  each category, in the following order:

  • Arrival Game: ideal as a warm-up (about 10 mins)
  • Multi-directional Game: maximising each players’ contact with the  ball and encouraging multi-directional movement (about 15 mins)
  • Directional Game: honing skills in exercises related to actual match situations (about 15 mins)
  • Together Game: used as a closing game, to bring the girls together  and emphasise teamwork at the end of the session (about 10 mins)

The session templates at the end of the booklet can be printed in order to  take notes and construct your own training sessions according to own specific needs, number of players, equipment, etc.
While delivering sessions, the most important thing is to create a safe,  positive and rewarding environment for your players.
A love of football  comes from the fun of playing it, so maximise participation by ensuring  that all players are included and participate at all times, touching the ball as often as possible.

The Together #WePlayStrong games have been specifically designed to heighten learning and skills acquisition through match-related activities, allowing the players themselves to be the decision-makers.

“ We want every girl to feel she belongs and is part of a team, because Together #WePlayStrong”
