The „Winter Football School of the Football Association of Serbia”, organized by the instructors’ section for players born in 2006 and in 2007, which was taking place in two shifts, from 1-5 February and 6-10 February 2020 at the FAS Sports Center in Stara Pazova, has now been completed.
In addition to control of existing selection, the camp served as an opportunity for additional selection of players, and the fact is that, for ten days of work and stay at FAS SC, there were more than one hundred boys in the training process.
The Instructors’ Services Co-ordinator Mr Dalibor Zorko and persons who were in charge for technical part of program of the FAS Instructors Services have, in co-operation with FAS Regional and County instructors and with assistance of guest coaches, implemented the plan and program made by the FAS Instructors’ Services.
Plan of Instructors’ Services was to define the Serbian school of football at youth age-categories level, which would be based on Serbian talent, tradition and identity. The goal is to create a unique work methodology to be implemented by the clubs, with an aim to jointly come up to the model of player for the future period, to the purpose of achieving the best results in club and representative football.
The code of representative football has been an integral part of this program, with a focus on raising awareness of the importance of education. The Coaches’ Organization is actively involved in this idea, and the leading clubs have shown openness for cooperation in the implementation of this program.
The camp was ran twice a day, whereby the morning training was General training (coordination, motor skills, speed, ball and no ball technique), and the afternoon training was Specific training based on game spaces and elements (1: 1, 1: 2, 2: 1, 2: 2, 3: 2, 2: 3, 3: 3, 4: 4).
– Respect the daily schedule of activities
-Monitoring and diagnosing the development of boys through training exercises and games
-Daily two training sessions of general and specific (situational) content
– Workshop (education and interaction).
In addition to the instructors, specialist coaches (goalkeeper coaches, physical training coaches, technical training, etc.) were involved in the work with the players. The guest of the camp was our former national team player and international player Bojan Jorgačević, who was in charge of work with goalkeepers.
The work of the school was conducted under the supervision of the expert medical team of the FSS.
In addition to football activities, the camp also featured workshops in the form of teaching and educational activities: nutrition of athletes, psychology, a spot quiz on the history of football. The lecture was also delivered by our renowned international referee Milovan Ristić, who tried to explain that we are all on the same mission to make our football game as beautiful and attractive as possible. We can achieve this if players and referees respect and understand each other.
– ‘Serbian football has a beautiful future’ – said Instructors’ Services Coordinator Dalibor Zorko.- A new wave of talented boys is coming, and it is our task to enable them to develop well and help them in their football maturation. Of course, we will not talk about names yet, but Serbia always was, and will be a birth country of talented kids.
