The Modern Day Defender

Modern Day Defender

Football Flick’s defender of the week was Ben Chilwell, who has now scored in each of his last 4 successive games. Thomas Tuchel has put faith in his young left back and he is certainly delivering the goods, helping to keep Chelsea at the top of the league.

Gone are the days when the defender’s job was simply to stop the opposition and clear the ball from danger. The new modern-day defender has evolved into a ball playing footballer who is encouraged to play the ball out from the back with superb accuracy and control.  The best form of defence is attack, using accurate through balls from deep to generate counter attacking opportunities.  The defender’s skill set is vast, not only are they expected to be strong, but they also need the complete package of strength, agility, speed and accuracy and if you get your name on the score sheet, like Ben Chilwell then that is a bonus!

Children no longer just want to be the striker in the team, they want to be like their superhero defenders.

Here at Flick, the Hero! team defender makes sure that he is one of the best passers in the game, leading the team from the back.  He uses the Hero mini skills trainer to focus on passing and control to make sure that he improves his accuracy. The Hero trainer allows you to pass and then receive the ball as it rebounds back to you, replicating game play.  The Hero! trainer features the famous football flick curved ramp which is scientifically proven to improve core skills.  As the ball is returned to children, they are free to practice their superhero skills in the garden on their own for hours upon end.  The Hero trainer is a three in one compact skills trainer for younger players with an interchangeable rear rebounder and goal. Once practice with the rebounders is over, it can be turned into a goal for a quick game or shooting practice.  It comes with a specifically designed ball making the Hero! trainer appropriate for indoors or outdoors. So, it is the perfect all year-round training product.  No need to stop playing for the rain!

The trainer can be used alone to practice or can be set up to be used with friends. Your child will instantly feel like a superhero ready to take on anyone that stands in their way. Developing children’s footballing superhero powers from a young age will improve your child’s motor skills and coordination, whilst they are simply having fun.
