SUPERGYM'S STREET SOCCER AND FUTSAL ACADEMY



AGE GROUP: Boys & Girls 6-18 Years Old


SUPERGYM'S Soccer and Futsal Academy teaches some of the most up to date skills of the game. Educating young players in personal development themes required to achieve long lasting results on and off the playing field.

Technique and strategy are the key element to playing a good game. Our program is about allowing players to develop exciting, fresh, new, functional skills which will not only be effective, but will blow people away.

SUPERGYM'S Soccer and Futsal Academy differs from the more conventional approach to developing skill. It is based on the player being just as important as the coach in the learning process. Every young player learning to play has an inherent desire to express him or herself through the game, but all too often they are denied this right because of an 'authoritarian' coaching approach where coaches believe they have all the answers. Our Soccer and Futsal program will allow players to become themselves, to develop their own moves as well as learn from others around them. Soccer is also about showing players how they can unlock qualities in themselves and allow them to play more naturally and successfully. Players will be allowed to gradually find out things for themselves, make their own 'mistakes', experiment and try their own ways of approaching challenges in the game. They will be encouraged to set their own goals and expectations.

Children who train at SUPERGYM'S Soccer and Futsal Academy will benefit in a number of ways. Physically they will 'free-up', start to move fluently and become technically proficient. They will become better decision-makers, deal with pressure and learn to express themselves positively. The players will become accomplished learners and learn how to think for themselves. Last but not least they will enjoy playing the game.

"For a young person, playing football should be one of the most wonderful experiences of their lives, but sadly/regrettably many young players don't find it an enjoyable or pleasurable activity because too many adults (parents/coaches) are getting in the way by over coaching, shouting, screaming and raving, and having a win at all costs philosophy. Unless we adults (who have the power) get our act together on behalf of our young players, we will not have any football at all because young people simply won't want to play - and who could blame them!"
