Grassroots (Aldo Mini Roos) Certificate

“Discovery phase”

For coaches training 5-9 year old players

The 3 hour course is fully practical and encourages the coach to develop practices that are based on FUN. The emphasis is on natural development i.e. learning by PLAYING football. No coaching but organising FUN football exercises is the key to helping players build a love for the game. Another highlight of the course is that the coaches are exposed to basic rules of the game as well as tips and hints on building a football culture in a completely practical setting.

Skill Training Certificate 

For coaches training 9-13 year old players

In the Skill Acquisition Phase the coach MUST focus on building a solid foundation of Technical Skill. The course is conducted over 14 hours, is fully practical and deals with the development of the 4 Functional Game Skills:

  • First Touch
  • Striking the Ball
  • Running with the Ball
  • 1 v 1

These four Core Skills make up 95% of the actions of any outfield player during a game of football which is why it is critical to train these actions repeatedly so that the players have the opportunity to develop their ability to perform them more effectively during a game.
