Development Phase (U14/U15/U16)
Welcome to Game Sense United, a football club committed to the holistic development of each and every player.
Our "Development Phase" practice sessions currently run up to 44 weeks per year for players in School Year 9 (U14s). U14s is the first year that players step into the 11 a-side format of the game. The final increase of the number of players on the pitch and a larger playing surface.
During these years the competitive nature of the game changes with the introduction of league tables and additonal cup competitions to play for.
Our qualified team put together a training programme aimed to improve the abilities of each participant, but also to provide fun filled football experience.
The program uses the latest coaching techniques and set itself apart from any other provision for young players in the island. The program focuses its teaching on the "holistic" player developing upon the fundamental techniques by way of introducing a more detailed 'tactical understanding' to approach the 9 aside format of the game that now includes the 'Offside and Back Pass' laws of the game giving your child the best coaching and opportunity they can receive to become the best player and person they can be.
For our 11 a-side squads we aim to register 16 participants ensuring each player receives the quality interaction required
from our coaches to help our young players progress.
