FC Santa Coloma Youth Development System
There are different stages in grassroots football but the important thing is that in each of them we are responsible for the children enjoying what they do.
Basic training must be educational and fun but linked to values that make the little footballer grow in every way.
At FC Santa Coloma we have qualified and licensed coaches, many of them footballers, who perfectly understand the needs and feelings of the boys at every moment.
The essential thing is that the footballer acquires solid foundations on which to base his football-personal maturity process, which must be related to the improvements that allow him, little by little, to become a competitive footballer in all levels: decision, psychological and physical.
Everyone prefers to win and there is no greater reward after a week of training, but we prioritize the child’s growth as a footballer over the result they get when playing the match, but without losing sight of competitiveness.
Compete to practice what has been learned, evolve through the competition and gradually adapt to the real situations that football proposes.
Next to this competitive function is that of training young talents who can play in the first team and who knows if in a few years they will become part of the future of world football.

The concept of attack, that is to say, explain to young people what it is to attack and why it is useful. For example , explain that attacking is when they go to the other goal to score a goal. Positioning, telling the kids how to position themselves on the field, explaining that there are places for each player and telling them what they are.
DEFENSIVE PRINCIPLES: The concept of defense, that is, tell the little ones that you have to defend so they don’t score and explain to them how they should position themselves so that doesn’t happen. Proportional distribution of the spaces, so that they know where they must be placed in the field so that they are not all in the same place and leave free spaces unoccupied.
CONCLUSION: It is the first stage of the footballer, in which he still does not assimilate the concepts well so it is necessary to give them minimal notions of tactics since at this age it is very difficult to make them understand a system. The ideal system at this age is: 1-3-3
