At S4K we strive to emulate and go beyond the best coaching methods from around the world. The S4K Way comes from the combination of the techniques of the world’s greatest footballing nations and their sporting philosophies.
• The Dutch with their Total football and Coerver method to build individual skills and confidence
•The Spanish with their Tika-Taka philosophy promoting control, pass, move techniques combined with constant, support, pressing the opposition and overall teamwork
• The Brazillian commitment to skills, rhythm, dribbling, shooting and creativity developed through the use of the indoor futsal ball and beach football.
• Montessori techniques - The S4K Child development and learning techniques are founded upon the Montessori education movement that focuses on the child and fellow children helping each other. The S4K Way is to design football coaching from the individuals perspective to create fun and gradual learning techniques to keep children engaged. To build the enthusiasm and passion from within each and every child.By combining these four philosophies you can create the finest football coaching programs for our children which we have called “The S4K Way.” Taking this further is the S4K passion for developing sports coaching from a child centric perspective. We break each skill and movement down to its most granular form and then teach the constituent skills in fun excercises. This helps create the ultimate sports experience for kids.
The enhanced skill levels combined with the gradual introduction to the joy of competing allows them to feel proud they can take on the World! The S4K Way combines all these elements into the S4K Player Pathway that develops your child at her or his own pace.
Our Player Pathway consists of 11 core pillars that are designed to provide an introduction to football, build confidence, develop skills and then use these skills within a low-pressure competetive and nurturing environment. After this, players move into our S4K Football Club and begin to use their skills against otehr venues in friendlies and other external teams.
