Oct. 8, 2011 - PRLog -- Abu Dhabi, UAE, 2 October, 2011: Aspiring footballers as young as three years old are getting a big kick out of a new coaching programme launched in Abu Dhabi.

The Dome@Rawdhat has become a magnet for players of all ages, currently hosting more than 12,000 footballers and their families every month to its indoor and outdoor pitches.

Now youngsters in the 3-4 and 5-6 year age groups have the chance to polish their skills following the launch of the ‘Mini-Kicker’ programme by The Dome Football Academy.  And judging by the reaction of the first group to enrol, the scheme will be a huge hit with both children and parents.

The programme encourages children to learn football in a fun way, with no emphasis on winning or losing, but on building self-confidence and gaining social skills as they listen and follow directions from coaches, cooperate and share with their team mates.  The techniques taught help these youngsters develop co-ordination and fine tune their motor skills as well as instil sense of fun from exercise.

“It’s wonderful to see the smile on the faces of the youngsters,” said Bambang Sugeng Bin Kajairi, CEO of Reem Investments, who built the Dome complex.  “They’re having a great time, and we’re getting a very positive response from parents so this can go from strength to strength.”

“We signed our daughter up to the programme because we were keen she participates in a team sport and she loves football,” said Richard Rose, a British expatriate living in Abu Dhabi whose five year old daughter Molly regularly wins player of the day.

“She has learnt multiple skills such as how to take instruction, how to interact with other young children, how to appreciate space and how to control, dribble, run with, pass and shoot the ball.  Most of all she is having fun and getting exercise.”

Reem Investments has built a vibrant sporting community around its Dome facility since opening it just under two years ago at Rawdhat, the residential and business district taking shape on Airport Road, Abu Dhabi.

The first of three ten-week ‘Mini-Kicker’ courses now under way runs until 26 November 2011, with others to follow from 7 January 2012 to 17 March 2012, and 6 April 2012 to 8 June 2012.  Enrolment costs AED550,
