Back to Basics

First touch in football is incredibly important and has been overlooked by fancy flicks and tricks. Were bringing back the emphasis on first touch by introducing a number of programmes which will be introduced in to your trianing routine and also homework challenges which are simple but very effective. Your training within the academy, no matter the age group, will include a warm up routine which WILL give you 1000+ touches of the ball.

We are looking for videos to be sent over to us showing YOUR child hitting a ball of a wall! So simple yet its so effective. We want to know the amount of times your child hits the wall/board/fence within the 2 minute period. Over the year we will increase the difficulty and challenge either by increasing time or aiming for X amount of touches. The winning entry with the most amount of touches off the wall in 2 minutes shall win a Gartcairn SKY BLUE hat. This is open to EVERY age group within the academy, young ones, old ones, girls, boys & aliens.

Entry is open and here is a few links to attempts already entered.
