Little Winners Football Challenge

What does the challenge involve?

To celebrate all things football and the start of the UEFA Euro’s 2020/1 this June, we are kicking off with a challenge for all those budding footballers.

Before you start make sure you warm up with some light jogging and lots of stretches like the professionals do. Warming up is not just about warming up your muscles, but also warming up your mind allowing you to focus on the football.

Who are you supporting? Have you made some flags and banners?

Why don't you see how many of these tasks you can do throughout the challenge month:

1. Technical Practice - 5 or more 'Kick-Ups'. Learning how the ball will move and bounce off different parts of your trainers or boots is fundamental to all aspects of football.

2. Target Practice - Find a post or something to aim at. Start close to it, and see how far back you can work while still hitting the target

3. Control Practice - Mark out a course with cones to dribble in and around. See how quick you can get throughout the month. Control is key though, never let the ball get more than a few inches from your foot. (Little Winners Hint: try lots of smaller touches to keep the ball as close to your feet as possible).

4. Passing Practice - Pass the ball with a friend, family member, or just against a wall (with permission of course). Practice passing with both your left and right feet. Practice one touch passing, focussing on control and accuracy over speed. Try controlling the ball and then passing, keeping the ball as close and controlled as possible. Remember that while you have the ball, the opposition do not.

5. Heading Practice - Ask a friend or family member to throw the ball gently for you to head. Keep your eye on the ball, and try to head it back to the person who threw it for you. If you feel capable, why not try a game of head tennis between you and a partner and see how many headers you can do before the ball falls to the floor.

6. Penalty Practice - Would you be brave enough to take a penalty for your Country in a big game? Mark out some goal posts and see how many penalties you can score out of 5. Try it without a goalie, try it with a static goalie, and try it with a proper goalie. (Little Winners Hint: you have already done Target Practice. Imagine your target is in one of the corners of the goal and aim for your imaginary target).
