Belfast Games Development Programme Membership

The value of a McDonald’s Small-Sided Games Development Programme is to provide children (6-12 years old) with an opportunity to showcase their newly acquired skills and creativity. The small-sided games model is an effective method for developing ball skills and game awareness because it increases opportunities for players to have contact with the ball and to both attack and defend without the tactical regimentation that can occur in 11 v 11 football.

Competition is a central element in a player’s development. However a competitive environment should not be a result-orientated environment. A competitive environment at this level should encourage decisions from players and coach alike that focus on performance rather than outcome (favouring ball skills and inventiveness).

Remember none of these children are professional football players. As such, they are out there because they love the competition and the game of football. Let them have fun and let the coaches do their jobs.

We would be grateful if all parents/ guardians do not coach from the sidelines and please view games from the opposite side of the pitch from the coaches and inside the designated spectator area.
