In the methodology of training according to Soccer Skills Pro system we distinguish a following division of stages and age categories:

Stage 0 and 1

is characterised with a lot of spontaneity when it comes to playing football. Training is made mainly through fun games. Acquiring first technical elements connected with this sport discipline starts already in stage 1. Those are some simple elements resulting from child’s natural development and his willingness to possess the ball like for example dribbling or ball reception.

 

Stage 2

When children are 9-10 years old, their ability to focus increases and their movements become scarce and precise which has an impact on learning more complicated both technical and tactical elements. There is a progression of the intellectualization of activities (increased interest in the effects of the work, willingness to compete, satisfaction from having a  good training).

 

Stage 3 and 4 (11-14 years old)

Plenty of players are at the end of Stage 4 so their age 14 is a level of almost complete mastery of their technical skills. There is no doubt that the range of skills of the player should be on a very high level already allowing him at the same time to learn more and more complicated tactics issues. When it comes to physical preparation there is a more dynamic development of motor skills coordination. Additionally, this stage is characterised by high level of courage and activity, increasing ability of information receipt, unbelievable ease of learning even the most complicated movements.

Stage 5 and 6 (15-19 years old)

There is a continuous improvement of already learnt technical elements, more and more  tactics area plays even bigger role and the match determines the level of skills mastery by the players. Additionally, in this stage 6 appears a positional training which is targeted at tasks and expectations of each player playing on particular positions.  When it comes to physical preparation, greater emphasis is placed on special strength as well as mastering already learnt motor reactions.
