School Holiday Camp Program

The objective of Forest Killarney School Holiday Camps is to provide a fun and engaging opportunity for children to learn new football skills and techniques. The camps will focus on different techniques to help develop core skills. Our drills are fun based but progressively linked to the FFA 4 core factors of skill acquisition that improve ability to first touch, 1v1, running with and striking the ball.

In addition to the skills being learnt, participants will be provided with the opportunity to practice their skills in small-sided games. The day will generally include a number fun soccer related games.

Our task is to make sure that all players achieve even time on the ball and have fun in equal measure. We aim to balance the intensity of instruction and demonstrative coaching with less intensive periods of free play and fun based gameplay using skills learnt.
