Our Coaching Philosophy
The coaching staff and officials of FURNGATE YOUTH FC understand that children participate in football to have fun. If children don't have fun playing football then they soon loose interest and stop playing the beautiful game.
We never forget that a game of football is just that- a game, it's not about how many wins and losses are accumulated and it is surely not about how many trophies are collected and it's not about how many goals we score or concede. It's all about enjoying the game and at the same time learning and developing football and skills.
Proper football development requires that children play age appropriate activities so they are able to experience, comprehend, and execute the game as it relates to where they are at their own stage of physical and mental development.
It is about playing in different positions so the player learns all the skills necessary to develop in the game.
It's about receiving equal playing time, so the players are all given equal opportunity to learn.
It's about learning the techniques of the game through a variety of fun games where players have as much contact with the ball as possible and learn at their own rates.
