Football for fun

In a 2014 study conducted at George Washington University, young athletes were asked why they played sport. The overwhelming response (90%) was for fun!

Of course fun is subjective, but typical responses for their interpretation of fun included trying their best and being treated respectfully by coaches and teammates.

Here at footballbydesign we understand the need to ensure that the environment children learn in is fun, as well as being challenging and engaging. If fun is their primary motivation behind playing sport, you can be sure that if that stops, so will their participation, irrespective of their ability.

All of our sessions are designed to ensure each participant is intrinsically rewarded by maintaining an element of fun, so check out our sessions to see which one will suit your child.

Starting the football journey…

It doesn’t take an extensive Google search to find studies which show a positive relationship between young children playing sport and the benefits it provides now and in later life. Sport provides a platform for people to thrive physically, mentally and socially, and the younger the person, the sooner these benefits can be reaped.

Whether it’s developing motor skills with basic hand-eye or hand-foot coordination, mixing, mingling and making new friends in their team or helping to develop positive self esteem, sport’s beneficial impact should not be underestimated.

footballbydesign are committed to enabling children to learn and develop these important life skills whilst providing a fun and safe environment to do so. Head over to our relevant Football Programmes section to find a suitable class for you and your child.
