The Community Programme courses delieverd at Springfield Stadium 3G are a great way to help children boys and girls of all abilities to participate in football. We also pass on local football clubs contacts to help further children's enjoyment and development in football.
All Jersey FA sessions are based on a unique FA coaching model that helps boys and girls of all abilities to grow, develop their skills and reach their full potential. The model we follow is the FA four corner model that includes four key attributes that are vital for any developing young footballer: Physical, Technical, Psychological and Social Elements. By using this model we will not only aim to help the children develop their football skills we will also aim to help them gain confidence, build self-esteem, learn to work as a team and improve on their decision making. As well as concentrating on the learning and development of the young footballers we are also aware that any sessions need to be fun and enjoyable to all ability levels and with this in mind our coaches will plan out their sessions accordingly.
