Foundation Stage

Foundation Phase   Age 7-11

At the Foundation phase we will focus on developing each individual player’s ball mastery and technical skills so they have the freedom to be creative make their own decisions.  This will build on the foundations that were coaches during the FUNdamentals phase and players will be encouraged to develop a love the game.

Teams will train twice a week with games taking place at the weekend.  They will also represent Ballymena United in selected tournaments during the season.

In order to enhance the limited time coaches have with the teams, Ballymena United Youth Academy will also provide an 8 week online course to help players continue their learning at home.

The course is fun and will improve technical skills, football knowledge and all-round athletic ability.
