term time coaching programme

22 October 2005 09:00

The Dons in the Community Term Time Coaching Programme is underway. The programme is comprised of AfterSchools, Skills Centres, Mini-Kickers and Goal Keeping courses. Each course is explained in further detail below.

The successful Shell DonsLink programme now includes 19 individual AfterSchool football centres across Aberdeen City, Aberdeenshire and Moray with further centres planned throughout the region. Each AfterSchool centre provides an hour long session that includes practices that are intrinsic to the game of football. Each week our SFA accredited team of coaches introduces a different theme including passing, dribbling and shooting.. All sessions also include the opportunity to take part in friendly small sided games. The centres are fun, football orientated and suitable for 5-14 year old boys and girls of all abilities.

Skills Centres
The Dons in the Community now run 9 Soccer Skills Centres throughout the Aberdeen City and Aberdeenshire. These Skills Centres are open to boys and girls of Primary School age and are all delivered by SFA accredited coaches.The coaching covers all aspects of football, with individual skill development being the main objective. Each week participants will learn a specific skill be it ball mastery; passing and receiving; combination play; finishing on goal. Participants are then encouraged to practice the skill at home and perfect what they have learned which will help to develop their skill and ability.

Aberdeen Football Club's Dons in the Community Team have recently launched Mini-Kickers. Mini-Kickers is essentially a fun introduction to football for boys and girls aged from 3-5 years old. All sessions will be delivered by certified SFA coaches in a safe and secure environment. The sessions involve various fun activities improving running, jumping, balance and co-ordination. The use of specialised equipment within fun games also allows the development of football skills such as kicking, dribbling and catching.

Goalkeeping Clinics
The Dons in the Community Team are also running 4 Goalkeeping clinics in the area. We feel that the clinics are important to most clubs as, due to time constraints, goalkeepers tend to be overlooked, therefore additional quality coaching and encouragement can only assist in their development. Goalkeeping is a specialised skill therefore all goalkeepers will be coached by our excellent SFA qualified coaches. Skills covered include catching and distribution; mobility; shape; handling; goalkeeping routines.
