Fun Fours

The conditions that created players such as Kenny Dalglish and DenisLaw are brought back to life in the form of Fun Fours football.

 

Fun Fours programmes for five to eight year-olds are run by the Scottish FA, in partnership with local authorities, in sports centres around the country.

 

Children very rarely play street football these days, but with small-sided games vital skills picked up on the streets can now be developed within a new environment.

 

In this format, children have more touches of the ball, greater chances for 1 v 1s, opportunities to make important on-field decisions – and it's great fun.


Fun Fours isn’t just for children – Sir Alex Ferguson uses the same format in training at Manchester United.

 

Coaching tips for attacking include: changing pace, direction, disguise, raising awareness of players around you and how to go for goal.

 

Defending tips include: trying to win the ball back quickly, finding space to help the defending player and how to deny space.
