Germany Soccer School
During the 6 week holidays, Wolves Community Trust continued its 10 year long association with the Army Welfare Service by sending coaches out to deliver a soccer school at Sennerlager, Normandy Barracks in Germany.
The Wolves coaches worked alongside the Paderborn United coaches delivering a variety of football sessions.
Coaches Hayley Moulick, Gavin Jones and Tom Rann led a 5-day soccer school for 90 children of serving army personnel with support from volunteers provided by the AWS.
Wolves Community Trust focused on developing individual skills and match play. Wolves coaches adapted sessions for children of all ability levels with the aim to learn new and improve existing football skills in a fun and dynamic environment.
On the first day of the course the children were divided into groups (based on age) and assigned a coach who will assess each child's football skills, and monitored their progress throughout the week.
A Typical day consisted of a warm up and technical sessions working through core topics such as: Passing, Shooting, Turning, Speed, Tactics, Dribbling and Match Play. Upon completing the week, each child was awarded with a Wolves Soccer Schools completion certificate, medal and gifts.
