Starting with the Pulcini category, the eight-year-old child from the Small Friends category, where comparisons take place only in the form of events that include confrontational games, looks for a “real” match for the first time. At this time so delicate and particularly conducive to learning (the so-called “golden age”), we will never tire of repeating the importance of playing ALL CHILDREN available to every single team, just because it is their right Participate and have fun. For this purpose, the Federation stipulates that the matches must be of three times, specifying that all the members of the list participating in the match must play at least one full time of the first two, with the possibility of using the so-called “flying gear” in the third fraction Of playing, playing two thirds of the race. Going into the field is an extremely important element for the formation of the child, even those, as I call them, “less prepared for football.” These will first and foremost feel part of the team and somehow like all of their companions, with a psychological benefit that will increase their self-esteem and their intrinsic motivation (that is, the inner push that supports engagement in a ‘Activity that brings satisfaction from what you do). All this will trigger the desire to learn all the gestures and situations related to football, as the child becomes aware of what he has learned and what he needs to do to improve it further.
