Future Players Programme

Just Play, in partnership with It’s Just Football, delivers a tailored programme for future football stars. Our Future Players Programme consists of three different stages before joining our elite academy pathway: DIDSMIDS and, finally; BIGS. The Future Players Program is an environment created for your children to gain the confidence to express themselves as individuals, as well as mini footballers.

The sessions are all lead by FA qualified coaches and will incorporate various cognitive challenges, allowing for an educational aspect. All sessions are planned with a view to bettering children’s motor skills, as they quickly develop physically at such a young age.

DIDS

Ages: 1.5 – 3

DIDS SESSION

DIDS is the very start of the Just Play / IJF pathway where children are introduced to the game of football. The highly detailed sessions will enable children to practice dribbling, passing and, of course, scoring goals!

The fun, educational sessions enable your child to work at their own pace and within their own ability to develop physically and socially.

 

PRICE:

Only 700 AED per term (one 30-minute session per week). Try the first session for free – no obligation.

15% sibling discount available.

 

 

NOT READY TO COMMIT?

If your child is not yet ready for our fun DIDS sessions, or you need a little more flexibility – please come along to a Bounce & Balls session.

MIDS

Ages: 3 – 5

MIDS SESSION

MIDS sessions are planned to cater to the confident personalities and the high amount of energy the children will bring!

The games included begin to be more football related, as we start to bring in a competitive edge through the understanding of matches.

Despite the introduction of a competitive element, the sessions are still based around fun and education, meaning that any new members to the group are able to come in and work at their own pace to develop as individuals, whether this is socially, physically or cognitively.

 

PRICE:

Only 940 AED per term (one 45-minute session per week). Try the first session for free – no obligation.

15% sibling discount available.

BIGS

Ages: 5 – 7

BIGS SESSION

The final stage of the Future Players pathway prepares your child for our elite program. The more technical sessions enable your child to have more touches on the ball to develop the technique of the skills that have been learned.

The use of problem solving within games enables your child to still work on his/her cognitive skills while also enabling the player to improve on their motor skills.

The extended match time at the end of the session will start to give a better understanding of the game as well as enabling your child to work socially as a team, with a focus on sportsmanship. This also enables the child to have a better understanding of the rules to once again improve football knowledge.

 

PRICE:

Only 1,400 AED per term (one 60-minute session per week). Try the first session for free – no obligation.

15% sibling discount available.
