Crusader Soccer Academy for Girls camps have an emphasis on ball mastery, attacking and defending in 1’s, 2’s and 3’s, TEAM efficient tactics, and scoring goals! “Fun-Dribble-Finish,” though, is uniquely designed to be a narrower age-appropriate focus, specifically fun, dribbling and shooting on goal! This is important for several reasons 1) Mostly younger kids don't see space, don't understand spacing between players which is why they don't see other players for passing and can’t support teammates for passing 2) At the younger ages is when we develop our core dribbling skills, comfort on the ball. The inability to handle pressure on the ball is the biggest limiter in a player's potential as they get older.
There are exceptions, but the overriding rule is simply, "You can teach a dribbler how to pass later in life, but you cannot teach a passer how to dribble later in life, which means they have trouble improvising which is the first and most decisive principle of attack. Parents should provide their toddler a size 3 ball for play in the house but do not allow them to kick it, only dribble. If you have 2nd child, get a second ball so they don't share, they can play with their soccer ball toy with their feet. No kicking, no passing, only dribbling, ball mastery touches on the ball. This has been tested and proven over and over. Trust me.
