Petit Elite ProgramAt Elite Football Training Facilities we believe in children play-based learning. It is for that reason that Petit Elite Football program is designed to meet the Early Years Learning Framework (EYLF). Petit Elite Football program recognises the importance of physical play in the early years to develop a strong sense of wellbeing in young children.
It takes a holistic approach by paying attention not only to children’s physical but personal, social and emotional by teaching them independence skills, positive interactions with other children and how to behave confidently within a large group with care, empathy and respect.
Our main focus is to create an awareness about football in young children from 2 to 5 years old and to allow them to get involved and progressively learn the basic skills of the sport.
Through the journey children will be embedded into the passion that Elite Football believes in about Football and children will experience their physical development alongside learning with fun. This development is divided into gross motor (the development and coordination of large muscles such as those in the arms, legs, chest and abdominal); fine motor (the development and coordination of small muscles such as those in the fingers, hands, toes, eyes and the face); and perceptual motor (the ability to receive, interpret and respond successfully to sensory information).
The children will gain a variety of skills including flexibility, agility, dexterity, spatial awareness, strength, body control, hand eye and foot-eye coordination, balancing, stability, rhythm, orientation, reaction and specific ball skills.
