 The FAI has developed 2 new coaching workshops - Small Sided Games (SSGs), which will be delivered on a nationwide basis, and there will be a number of free places on each course offered to clubs that are involved in the programme.

Similar to the Future Football programme, this is also the first year of these new workshops, and all other clubs/ coaches will have to pay for their attendance.

The reason for the development of these workshops concentrating on the utilisation of SSGs is to promote a more inclusive style of football whereby all players get plenty of touches of the ball (i.e. technical development), 

whilst also developing tactically as they encounter more instances in a game to attack and defend.

The utilisation of SSGs also means that more players can be involved more often, more of the time i.e. a full-sized pitch would allow 22 players to play 11v11, 

but on the same playing area, a minimum of 64 children can play 4v4 or 56 children If playing 7v7.
