Elk Grove Soccer is keen to take advantage of the benefits in developing players for the bigger game. Individual close ball skills are developed through an increased number of touches during the game, whilst players are nearly always placed in reduced space situations and are constantly forced to make decisions demanding speed of thought and quick reflexes.
‘I think the best way to improve your skills is to play football on a smaller pitch. I didn’t play 11-a-side football until I was 13. In Brazil most kids play what we call futebol de salao, which is similar to five-a-side. On a small pitch you need to have good control and move the ball around quickly. There isn't much space so you need to be skillful. That is why Brazil always produces players with great skill’.
