The Discovery Phase of Football is the first chapter of a players’ football journey, where young boys and girls aged 5-8 years old are introduced to the game of football.
At Sydney FC, the objective of the Discovery Phase is to grow a love for the game, while at the same time learning the basic fundamental skills of football.
Fun and enjoyment is crucial in this phase, and at Sydney FC we want to help nurture a passion for football to develop lifelong players and fans of the game.
We’ve published a few skills below to get practising that will help kids in their discovery phase.
