Football is an important game in children’s lives. It is widely considered that biological maturity influences physical performance. Relationships between body size and performance are partly confounded by age. In fact, age is positively associated to strength and motor performance, even when height and weight are controlled. Studies on young footballers have began considering the potential impact of variation on growth and biological maturity status upon sport-specific football skills. Skill, in all forms of manifestation, can develop along the whole year of preparation, of course with different weights, depending on the workout periods.Specific skill develops in particular by working specifically with the ball and by other means of movement on the ground, without the ball. The most effective mean is the game, in all its forms of organization: games and races with theme, games on low land, games in the numerical inferiority or superiority, training games with different rules and conditions or normal game of football. Between the ages of 8 and 12 years old, a child is mature enough to learn skills (and knowledge). By learning the right skills at this time, the child will become a physically gifted adult. If they are wrongly taught, it would cost a great deal to produce optimum performance. Closely related to the variety in training is another principle which should stand at the base of the skill development, namely the versatility on motrics; this is because skill is, by definition, a large motrical experience, accomplishments and advanced skills. Versality in training ensures, at the same time, the variety and the transfer of skills, leading in this way to the raising of skills’ development level. In the methodology of skills development both methods of analytical work, but also global ones are used. Furthermore, nowadays global training is used, and so, skill development is made according to the other motrical qualities. Personally, I think that is a good thing, because skill manifests in the game in correlation with speed, strength or resistance. It can be said that the development of skills can be achieved in training along with solving other tasks. At the same time, however, it should emphasize more the analytical development of this capacity in special training or at least in the individualized training.
