When the Youth Development Review was implemented in 2012 it fundamentally changed youth football, improving the enjoyment and development of young players by allowing more touches, on a better proportioned pitch, with an increase of involvement in the game as a whole.
The introduction of 5, 7 and 9-a-side football enabled young players to:
• Have more touches of the ball to develop technique
• Have more dribbling opportunities and 1v1s
• Have more involvement in the game
Put simply, more involvement means more enjoyment.
The following Youth Football Guide will provide parents, coaches and volunteers with a greater understanding of what youth football is now all about, whilst explaining how we can all work together to create a positive, player centered environment.
