EASTER SOCCER SCHOOL BLUES

14th April 2016

The school holidays mean only one thing for Cardiff City FC Foundation, Soccer Schools!

 

Easter holidays proved to be extremely popular, with old and new faces attending over the two-week window.

 

Easter Experience Day 2

 

Easter Soccer Schools took place in Cardiff, Abercynon, Bridgend, Ystrad Mynach and Peter Lea Primary School, meaning that more and more children from across South Wales can get involved and be a part of the Bluebird family #CityAsOne

 

Our unique Soccer Schools mean that young fans can engage with First Team players during sessions, players will take part in small-sided games and often find themselves on the wrong end of some impressive trickery.

 

Easter Experience Day 1

 

Coaching sessions include:

 

  • Being dominant in 1v1 situations

 

  • Ball manipulation skills and tricks on the ball

 

  • Ariel ball skills such as heading, volleying and controlling the ball, using different parts of the body

 

  • Communication skills

 

  • Small sided game situations, improving decision making and creativity

 

  • Tournament situations with relevant age groups

 

  • Football Tennis

 

  • Introduction to football related fitness

 

A highlight of Cardiff’s Easter Experience had to be the press conference with Sammy Ameobi followed by a tour of the fantastic Cardiff City Stadium, whilst all those on our Goalkeepers Course had the privilege of developing their shot stopping skills in the world-class facilities of the House of Sport.

The sun was shining over our junior Bluebirds at Ystrad Mynach 3G and Y Dderwen Community College, they’ve proved to be the place to be over the school holidays so make sure you book early to avoid disappointment.

Coach Gazza, Coach Liam and Coach Marty led the sessions in Abercynon, which had a surprise visit from Icelandic International Aron Gunnarsson. For those unable to travel far from home, Soccer Schools are now branching out to local schools. This proved popular in Peter Lea Primary School and will be replicated during Whitsun Half Term at Gelli Primary School and again at Peter Lea Primary School.
