The Tiny Timmy programme is designed to provide an age-appropriate family football experience for age groups U4-U5-U6.

Through fun games and activities, the programme develops balance, running, jumping, turning, hand-eye coordination and spatial awareness.

Each week the activities are based around a different theme eg: The Farm, Super Heros and the Sea. So the children are encouraged to use Imagination, develop core motor skills and learn social values such as friendship and teamwork.

Central to our style of play is the creation of diamonds and triangles.

The Foundation Programme allows us to embed this from the start. Players will rotate positions, including goalkeeper. Teams look to play out from the back using the goalkeeper and possession the ball with purpose.

Players will be encouraged to be confident in 1v1 situations, recognize when to pass and be comfortable receiving the ball.

The number of diamonds/triangles are increased to provide more passing options when in possession.

The focus on the central positioned player and their role will allow for more touches on the ball and increased decision making. Fundamental focus is given on ball mastery and technical proficiency in passing, receiving, dribbling and kicking the ball. Basic tactical information is given when in possession and to regain possession.

The aim is to dominate the ball in possession progressively through the thirds, be organized in attack, defence and transitions.

The system continues to allow position flexibility and movement within shape. Players define tactical and technical attributes in training and game. Ensuring players are prepared technically to carry out the tactical instruction.
