Sale United see players’ development as long term. The emphasis for our youngest players is on giving them confidence with a ball at their feet. We want them to express themselves, and even to make mistakes. We encourage them to make their own decisions, rather than be told what to do by the coach.
Our youngest players will learn from a 4 v 4 format, giving them lots of opportunities with a ball. As they progress through the club this will increase to 5v5, 7v7, 9v9 and 11v 11.
This section will also include helpful information which will help our players along the development journey.
