Following last years success, Perth and Kinross Youth FA in partnership with the Scottish FA East Region,will again be offering a 4 v 4 event programme for boys and girls in Perth and Kinross. The 4 v 4 football initiative allows the teams and players to come together on a weekly basis where they can play numerous games in the small sided format.

There has been a gradual reduction of street football over many years and this natural play experience was vital in producing talented footballers in Scotland. The Developmental Fours and Soccer Sevens game is an opportunity to introduce a small-sided game that will replicate some of the experiences from the playground and street games. The children will have more touches of the ball, more 1 v 1’s, goals, decision making opportunities and more fun.  The 4 v 4s is the first step on the Scottish FA’s National Player Pathway.

 This year’s programme will kick off:

*Sunday 4th March, 2012*

*North Inch, Perth*

*10am - 11am *

*Cost: £1*
