W pierwszych latach przygody z piłką nożną, dużo ważniejsze jest zrozumienie samych dzieci niż futbolu!

Football Club Koziolek Poznan has been established in April 2009. Our idea is based on Scottish and English Football Asocciation's Coaching and Football Developement. Polish football is in a very poor condition. Out national team and clubs play on a low level. Non of Polish clubs has got through to the Champions League since 1998. Poland's team wont go to the World Cup in 2010.

Too often, the focus within children's football has been the result of the game and the winning of the tournament, cup or medal. An ethos which promotes fun and learning and measures success in terms of enjoyment as well as the fostering of skill development, is more likely to interest and motivate a young player and enhance his/her progress.

All research into how young people learn about sport, confirms that the wellbeing of the child, and the good of the game, are served best by the use of modified games and, a sensible approach to competition. That's our goal.

Small sided games are designed to meet the needs of children aged between five and twelve years. These games are the preferred method of training by professional players and are the most appropriate way of acquiring skills and developing young players.

Skills Development

Reduced numbers and more appropriate size of pitch, lead to more contact, and to a greater chance to develop skills.

More Activity

The ball is more often in the vicinity of the players, which leads to greater involvement, and improved fitness levels.

All Involved

Nobody can improve from the sideline. 'Today's child star' seldom becomes 'tomorrow's star'. So let them all play.

Less Categorisation of Players

Youngsters are learning about the game. They don't yet have a "best position'. Allow them to try different positions.

Less Tactical Regimentation

Small sided games are simple. Rules are kept to a minimum - all children should be encouraged to play.


Winning should not be over-emphasised. Success at this age should be determined by the fun gained through participation.


Many children can lose interest and concentration in an eleven-a-side game, because the ball is too far away. Keep it small.

Decision Making

Because of the reduced numbers and pitch size, decision making for the children is easier. Game situations are also repeated regularly (eg attacking and defending) - this leads to a quicker understanding of the game.

Easy to Organise

Any grass area can be adapted quickly to accommodate a large number of youngsters.

Developing Awareness

Children are not young adults. The game must be tailored to meet their needs. Small-sided games help them develop a better awareness of the full game at their own pace.

At the moment we have two teams - U9 and U7. We are about to start with a recruitment for another two. We want to build a football team based on a scheme taken from Great Britan.

Do not hesitate to contact us if you need to get more information about FC Koziolek Poznan. We are looking for club partners abroad.

Football is an easy game - good sessions for kids between 5 and 12 years old are the base for developing creative player.
