We focus purely on learning with a ball, with sessions structured around fun.
Familiarisation with small sided games and some gentle development work in training. Time spent on the pitch in a game is not based on ability.
Skill levels and experience start to show (for some, not all). Technical development comes more to the fore, to work towards improving skills and ability.
