The season, like all of It's a Goal!, is based around football metaphor and comprises eleven sessions or matches. Eleven being the number of players in a football team, also fits the analogy and is broken down into a classic 4-4-2 formation as follows:
Goalkeeper 1st match - An introductory session where players sign up for the team, get to know each other and set their first goals.
Defence 4 matches - The defence sessions are based, naturally enough, on sound principles of teamwork, support, roles and includes the concept of change.
Midfield 4 matches - These sessions concentrate heavily on creativity and linking up, looking at relaxation, visualisation, communication, motivation, assertiveness and posture.
Attack 2 matches - The attack sessions provide, as all good strikers should, a great finish. They focus on taking opportunities and delivery through behaviour, practice, perspectives, evaluation and also look at aspects of good fortune and "luck".
Matches are completely flexible and allow for changes substitutions if appropriate. There is also a degree of flexibility as regards match times and days. Generally matches are held during the day, but seasons of evening floodlit matches have been run as well, to suit the individual needs of the players. Supporters Clubs follow up groups run as well to provide extra support once the season is over and also take place within the football club.
