What will you learn as a Junior Gunner?

We aim to produce players who want the ball and who are comfortable with it. The following technical topics will be a priority:

Dribbling. Using all surfaces of the foot, turning, cutting, escape and penetrative moves, running with the ball over distance.

Ball control. Receiving (with feet and other body surfaces) for close control, receiving on the turn, first touch with the purpose of getting beyond a defender.

Ball striking. Using different surfaces of the foot (inside, laces, outside), short and long passing, finishing.

Body control. Coordination, balance, fast footwork and changing direction.

Tactical knowledge. Decision-making with the ball in small-sided environments, spatial awareness, movement and risk assessment.

Small-sided games. 1v1, 2v1, 3v1, 3v2, 3v3.
