JPF; Just Play Futsal junior sessions.
WHAT ARE THE JPF SESSIONS?
These are sessions designed to give the players a chance to play regular futsal. No specific coaching, just games. Free from playing for a team or in a league; players can just go and enjoy and develop in an atmosphere of creativity and freedom.
WHY IS FREE PLAY BENEFICIAL?
In an age where kids can no longer play freely in the street, less opportunity to play informal games has led many in the coaching community to lament the passing of such a well worn trend. Look at the autobiographies of many top players; it is not the top class coaching session in plush surrounds that they credit; largely it's playing pick up street games, mixed age, variable surfaces, overloaded, often not even with a proper ball or on a conventional pitch. These sessions can provide the framework, the magic happens because the players will create it.
WHY IS FUTSAL SO GOOD?
It is long established that futsal has provided great players like Iniesta, Xavi, Neymar, Coutinho, Messi and Ronanldo an opportunity to improve these technical skills. However, the game also encourages players to develop their game in and out of possession with movement off the ball cited as a crucial factor in being an effective futsal player. Developing a talent for futsal will benefit players going onto play football but also now futsal is growing in the UK; there are so many opportunities for kids within the game.
