Recreation U7-U11

The Recreation Program is designed for beginners and juniors interested in playing football in a less competitive environment. Basic football skills are taught and reinforced. Inter Africa Football Academy supports South African Football Association’s teaching philosophy with respect to small-sided football. This philosophy allows the game to be the teacher by maximizing each player’s touches on the ball and encourages all the players to develop their skills in all positions.

Our Recreational Program currently consists of players from the age of 6 through the age of 11. Please take note that there is no skill level requirement at any age, i.e. we will have children of all levels participating on each team in our program. We have developed a system that provides both a fun and productive environment for players at all levels. Although our focus is predominantly on the enjoyment of playing the game, we would also like to utilize our time effectively with the players by teaching them as much as possible about the game and the skills needed to excel in the sport.
