Football for Years 4-6

The year starts with learning the essential basics: ball control, passing, dribbling and shooting.  This is a time for assessment and for building our squad.  We look to develop the players and move onto more technical aspects, such as set pieces, tackling, heading and team tactics throughout the season.

Pupils have the opportunity to represent Airthrie and play in our Football Team when fixtures are arranged with other local schools.

Pick-up is from the front door.  Please ensure that your child wears their Airthrie sport kit and shin-pads.
