Little Reds Foundation Program
Soccer has made great strides over the last 15 years especially at the Youth level. It has evolved in many areas of the U.S. Here at LFC we will provide and create a pathway for young players to grow and develop in a fun and professional environment and LFC is an ideal setting for this. LFC Little reds staff will be highly qualified and will provide great development these coaches will make a huge impact and become a big part of the development of future players at a much earlier age. LFC staff will offer high quality and consistent training throughout the year to enhance the product and retain players.
Program Overview Game -
U5 and U6 B&G
Here at LFC Little reds we will be playing 3v3 at this age , The staff are strongly in favor of what each player can learn from 3V3 through the understanding of this formation with little direction ( Guided discovery ) we will have kick-ins as a restart from any point on the field. LFCIA staff will also work closely with parent volunteers that will help in Game Day management as we feel at LFC it is important to help create a level of competence and understanding for the basic methods of coaching.
LFCIA are sensitive to these volunteers who are putting a footprint down for future LFC players to follow. Plus we create a mind set that in order to coach through various age groups coaching education is of the up-most importance.
U7/U8 Boys & Girls
At this age 5v5 will be played introducing a Goal Keeper role into the developmental stage . By creating G.K at an earlier age we feel it would not only make our G.K better but most importantly dilute the stigma of playing between the sticks, Allowing players to be exposed to this very important role within the game at an earlier age will enhance the G.K position.
Playing 5v5 at these age groups will allow more playing time for each individual it will also allow a diamond formation which is a key part of development in a individuals building blocks.
