During February Half- Term, Morecambe FC Community Sports hosted a 4 day soccer school. Here's a round up of everything that happened.
Morecambe FC Community Sports' recent half term Soccer School, which took place for a week in the February Half Term, had a great turnout where it was held at Mossgate Sports Centre.
The Soccer School offers children aged 4-14 years the chance to participate in a weeks footballing fun where they learn many different aspects of the game including ball control, dribbling, passing accuracy, shooting and also getting the chance to play fun skill games and penalty shootouts.
The attendees of the Soccer School where split into separate groups based on their age and footballing ability. The younger group spent the time focusing on their ball control, dribbling technique and shooting ability.
Whereas the older age groups focused on advanced shooting techniques, first touch on the ball, different dribbling techniques and then putting these skills into practise in 6-a-side matches.
Each day of the Soccer School ran in a planned format to keep the children learning new things and building upon the current ability that they had. As usual, the last day was the World Cup competition were each group participates in a big penalty shootout and then matches. Overall the coaches were impressed by the effort and good behaviour that the children showed throughout the week.
On the last day we also had the main presentation where all attendees received a medal and a ticket to a Morecambe FC First team home game. Player of the week received a new pair of football boots and the penalty shootout winners won trophies.
There will be another Community Sports Soccer School running for two weeks in April (Dates to be confirmed).
We would like to thank all those that attended the February Half- Term Soccer School and hope to see some of you again in April.
