FUNino Coaching Clinic

Apr 17, 13 FUNino Coaching Clinic

FUNiño is the introductory module of Futbol a la medida del niño, the world famous “Youth Football Development Model” by Horst Wein which has been the official textbook of the Spanish Football Federation since 1993, and represents a significant breakthrough in youth football coaching.

The magic formula of playing 3v3 on 4 goals introduces width,  options, perception and decision-making –  laying a solid foundation for  Game Intelligence.


FUNiño is the fastest growing development game for kids in the world today. It has been used extensively all over Europe and South America, currently in use at 6 Bundesliga clubs and recommended by Arrigo Sacchi, Technical Director of the Italian Football Federation.
