FUNdamentals Festivals – Preferred Training Model

fun-festivalAlberta Soccer is supporting the hosting of 5 NEW and 5 Returning FUNdamentals Soccer Festivals during the Spring/Summer of 2017. The Festivals teach the Preferred Training Model which is promoted by FIFA, for grassroots soccer players will help to provide a positive springboard from which communities may develop their grassroots soccer program. The model focuses on teaching technical skills in a FUN atmosphere.

Alberta Soccer Licensed Coaches will teach the preferred training model to community coaches who will gain the skills to run the preferred training model on their own with U9 players.

The deadline to apply for a 2017 Festival has now passed. For more information on the Festival Format, please contact John Clubb
