The Pro Football Academy is one of the leading football academies in the UK, coaching players between the ages of four and 16. In this course produced exclusively for CV Academy, head of football development Aidan Denver and head of coach development Mark Hoare introduce and explain a series of 20 key skills they look to develop in the players they work with.
The skills are split into a small number of categories: ball manipulation, forward moves, side moves and turns. Here, Denver speaks about the philosophy underpinning their focus on the 20 skills and, alongside special slow-motion training footage, Hoare explains each in clear and concise detail.
It’s a really interesting insight into the work coaches can do with players on the fundamental skills at grassroots level. We hope you find it useful!
