AM Soccer Schools
“A unique and independent approach to developing young Scottish footballers ”
There are three venues for our Soccer Schools, Cupar, Dundee and St. Andrews .
Cupar Soccer School
Fridays 4:30pm to 6:30pm
Duffus Park Artificial Pitch, Cupar
Dundee Soccer School
Thursdays 4:00pm to 6:00pm
Riverside Artificial Pitch, Riverside Sports Ground
St. Andrews Soccer School
Sundays 10:00am to 12:00pm
St Andrews University, Astroturf Pitch, St Andrews
At the soccer schools, the ages of the children are between 6 and 12 years old. Children from AMafterschools showing good progress are encouraged to attend the soccer schools. All children are welcome at the soccer schools. Our aim is to develop players by focussing in greater detail on the technical and tactical aspects of our curriculum and develop this in small sided conditioned games.
Some of the most talented players from the soccer schools have progressed further into the Dundee Utd youth system. We have over 14 players with Dundee United and three of those were recognised by FC Barcelona in 2011 whilst in Spain on the Easter Barcelona Tour. Players can progress quickly here. AMsoccer heavily involves our dedicated coaches implementing our curriculum and finding the best way to explain its meaning in relation to game situations. The AMsoccer curriculum involves three aspects being taught each month. Two of these aspects will be a ‘Game Theme’, such as, ‘Receiving the ball on the back foot’ or ‘Awareness of Space in a Game’. The third aspect will be a skill to focus on. This skill will be reapplied and repeated so that the use of the skill in a game is more likely. Here we hope to fully develop your child to become the best they can be.
AM After Schools
“Enjoy learning technical skills and promoting positive behaviours”
The after school sessions run at many different primary schools in North East Fife. We currently run at:
Newburgh, St Columbas, Balmullo, Anstruther, Falkland, Leuchars, Greyfriars, Castlehill and Auchtermuchty.
All sessions run from 3pm to 5pm. You are only required to collect your child at 5pm from the school. We will take care of your child as soon as they finish their school day.
At the after schools, the ages of the children range between 5 and 12 years old. This is very often the first football experience that your child has and we acknowledge that.
We provide fun football coaching which recognises your child’s achievements as they happen during the session. We know it is a vital part of the learning process to reinforce when the child does anything well (even the smallest part of a skill). We hope to minimise any negative behaviours by focussing on the positives. We aim to provide a safe and enjoyable environment that encourages them to listen and follow instructions. This allows them to improve their concentration, their self-esteem and therefore their positive behaviours. This in turn allows them to improve their football skills, their ability to be part of a team and the ability to share the ball by learning our passing philosophy.
Many of our most talented players have attended an after school session and then gone on to be talent identified and recognised with Dundee United. Our coaches will ensure that if your child shows potential then the opportunity to follow a similar pathway can be realised. The pathway can start when you sign up to an after school venue.
To enrol your child for any of the above programmes, please call 01334 657790
