Fun Football (7 - 8)

The fun football season kicks off Saturday, May 7th @Neale Park, starting at 10 am. 

Welcome, all to the 2022 season. We are excited to get our youngest members started in their football journey through FC Nelson. 5 aside teams, no GK’s, discourage goal hanging, Non-competitive grade – no scores/tables recorded.
'Fun football' is part of New Zealand's Football junior framework. The players learn new skills in a fun and friendly environment, taking part in weekly sessions that provide wide-ranging benefits.

  • Social & Emotional – lots of interaction, enjoyment
  • Technical & Tactical – lots of touches, 1v1s, attacking & defending
  • Physical – develop Functional Movement Patterns, more active
  • Mental – lots of opportunities for success and for decision making

Each Saturday is divided into 4 components:

  • 20% General movement
  • 20% Football coordination
  • 20% Football Technique
  • 40% Small sided football games
