The Junior Framework ensures that every child entering the game will take part in training and games that are tailored to his or her stage of football development — physical, mental, emotional/social and technical/tactical. It draws on proven football development programmes from around the world. The Junior Framework provides children with a fun and rewarding experience at every stage, while developing their skills as football players.
There are three stages in the Junior Framework:
- First Kicks for 4-6 year olds
- Fun Football for 7-8 year olds
- Mini Football for 9-12 year olds
