As one of the best summer camps we have run to date draws to a close, we’re pleased to confirm more spaces are available for future summer camps in Fife! Pitreavie Sports Centre have confirmed more space at their facility will be made available to increase the playing numbers we can take on.
Coming to end today has been the first World Cup themed camp which has been a massive success, aligning daily sessions to moments and players from this exciting and unpredictable World Cup.
At the start of the week, players were given coaching cards that related to each day’s session and asked to fill them in at home based on what they had learned.
It’s amazing how much the youngsters hand-writing improved throughout the week! On a more serious note, the learning of football-related skills and development over the week was clear to see.
Day one saw us work on how players in the positions of Sergio Ramos and Luka Modric linkup, we also worked on a # 7 work which is performed often by Paul Pogba.
Day two was all about the Neymar step-over for the younger kids. The older group focused on how players like Neymar and Marcelo show perfectly how a full back and a player coming in from a wide area influence a game.
As the middle of the week arrived, there was no let up in learning! The younger groups looked at the Ronaldo chop perfecting the move but also importantly where and when to perform the skill. Older groups worked on playing like Messi between the lines and also how a defensive player like Kyle Walker can link the play. We also found time for favourite games like Jailbreak, Braveheart, Football Tennis and small-sided games in the afternoon.
Day four was one of the best and all about Harry Kane and Antoine Griezmann – Goals Goals Goals! We looked at their strengths and how the striker links with his attacking midfield player allowing the midfielder to get up in support and go beyond.
As the incredible sunshine of days one to four was replaced with the Fife rain, player enthusiasm showed no signs of being diminished as games day began!
It has been a pleasure for the coaching staff to have run this camp and seen first hand the development of players and had such fun along the way doing so! Thanks to all the parents, grandparents, friends and all other dropper offs and pickers up for bringing our players to Pitreavie.
