The Aztec Foundation Academy U10 Lions and Tigers played their first 9v9 friendly matches versus St Martins and Rangers year 6 teams on Sunday.
The key learning objectives were
- To understand the increased space on a larger pitch
- To work as a 9 man team always involved
- To make the best decisions possible
- To physically compete
On all the above every player involved achieved some success and will certainly have had a positive experience.
There was notable trust to use the goalkeepers as the tenth outfield player able to re-distribute the ball and keep possession. This is an excellent decision and step by all concerned.
Smiles, learning, goals, tackles and lots of hard work. A great morning.
