U9 - U11

Foundation Phase Programme

Cardiff Met FC has devised a long term player development plan that offers talented individuals a clear development pathway. Our comprehensive curriculum has been designed by experts in coaching, child development, sports science and teaching. The programme ensures we deliver the appropriate type and amount of training depending on a player's age, position, preferred learning style and ability. The emphasis at this young age is on mastering techniques, developing good physical literacy and making decisions.


Our Curriculum

Players train twice a week with fixtures at the weekends. The sessions will offer enjoyment but are designed to challenge the players. Our youngest players will be given the opportunity to develop in a variety of positions with the aim of giving them all round ball mastery. The curriculum covers our four corner model which include developing the players; technically, tactically, physically and psychologically.
