S4K Football Academy


Academy 5 SmallOur S4K Academy (7+ years) focusses on small sided games, developing fun trick skills to excite and grab the imagination of our budding superstars. Small sided games that are focused on both emphasizing the practice of skills learned but also introducing specific skills such as one touch passing, flicks, drag backs and roll overs are ideal punctuation for drills around general team play and positioning.
We use some Futsal games and drills that are aimed at developing close control, close teamwork and passing. We use the lessons from the Brazillians to bring street football into the mix encouraging creativity, individual creativity and to allow the kids to dream achieve things beyond their own expectation. A strong sense of teamwork, building great confidence and reliability on each other is a natural progression for the Seniors.

There is a good mix of internal skills and external games on both Astro turf and real grass to bring on specific skills, techniques and physical development. The kids are now developing speed, power and athleticism aligned to their growing vault of skills and ball control techniques.  We encourage our S4K Academy members to join our S4K Football Club, where we play against other local sides as well as our other development centres, and enter into our S4K Tournament.
