Football-crazed boys and girls can brush up on their skills from the comfort of their own sitting rooms during the period of lockdown and learn from experts online. Are your little kickers missing their weekly football sessions? If your football club for kids seems like a distant memory, make sure you tune into these simple training sessions for home-training with Dad-of-four Robert and his family. Robert aims to improve ball mastery until we can all get back to play the game!
So, what can you expect from the class? During this 30 minute football for kids session, Robert will explain the exercises whilst eldest brother Luke demonstrates the drills, helped out by his younger brother Finley. The exercises have been devised to be safe for indoor play, so you don't have to worry about replacing the television just yet! This awesome football tutorial takes the format of typical kids' football classes, with warmups and lots of fun exercises. Robert also uses a clever technique to encourage children to keep looking ahead, rather than at the ball, while carrying out the drills.
Expect plenty of exercises to improve your skill with the ball. As you progress, your child will be able to speed up and get a little bit quicker with their footballing ability. Parents and siblings are encouraged, and sometimes asked to step in, to help out and be part of the team. The ideal indoor football training class! If you're not bothered about catching interactive live sessions, there are loads more football training videos online.
These sessions are recommended for slightly older kids, but if you've got younger children, they'd love the weekly Little Kickers classes instead.
