The Minions division focuses on introducing young players to the beautiful game. Through fundamentals sessions players learn the basic techniques required to play soccer while being encouraged to have fun. The Minions division is based on FUNdamental sessions and the opportunity for small-sided game sessions:
FUNdamentals—Sessions offer a fun environment for skill development, placing an emphasis on individual soccer skills that are integral to children’s development at these ages. Training is conducted in small groups with a coach to player ratio of 1:4. Within this program the players are taught the fundamental components of the beautiful game. Players learn the proper mechanics for passing, dribbling, control, and shooting.
Game—Our small-sided games offer an opportunity for players to demonstrate the skills and capabilities they have gained through the FUNdamentals sessions in an environment that does not elicit the anxiety or the pressure which often occurs in game situations. Occurring as a 4 vs. 4 or 5 vs. 5 with the winning team staying on, it is a friendly competition-like atmosphere where players can relax and have fun!

“Futsal requires you to think and play fast. It makes everything easier when you later switch to football.” – Pele
“In futsal, you see whether a player is really talented… you notice the small details in quality, class and tactical understanding.” – Xavi (Spain & Barcelona star)
