Mighty Moas - 8th Grade Boys & U7/U8 Girls

Our 8th grade programme is dedicated to Fun Football and is open to boys born in 2015 & Girls born in 2015 & 2016.  Fun Football continues the journey of the five part structure incorporating the general movement, technique and coordination skills learned in the Mini Moas programme, but spending some more time in the small sided game space to start the cognitive function of making decisions quickly and learning the basic rules of the game.  

The players will again follow the Papamoa FC framework designed for 8th grade football.  It will concentrate on multiple group drills in 2v1, 3v1 or 4v1 scenarios, skill techniques, decision making and will incorporate safe zones to provide players the opportunity to assess their next moves.  These skills will provide them key learnings to move to the next grade.
