This stage of the LTPD model is Learning To Train and is also known as 'The Golden Age of Learning’. This stage introduces players to disciplined training and begins to develop understanding of principles of play alongside their skills practice. Repetitions are important to develop technical excellence but creating a fun and challenging environment is still paramount to stimulate learning and promoting a love of the game.
Players want to learn imaginative skills so skill development is very important as players learn best by “seeing and doing.” At this age players are placed into ability groups to maximize their training environment. Every Player develops at their own pace and therefore movement is essential in creating a successful development program.
*NUFC is trying something new for the Winter indoor program. We are incorperating game play Friday evenings which will increase the program from 18 sessions to 27 sessions. This will be a league, with teams and standings. This is a trial to see if we can increase the number of players in this age group . Most iimportantly, it will be at no extra cost to our members*
As we are currently still in Phase 1, there will be no game play Friday evenings until there are less restrictions and we have reached Phase 2 with BC Soccer.
