The implementation of the suggested teaching program lasted for ten weeks, one teaching unit for each week which lasted for (90) minutes. The researchers used the statistical tools.

The researchers concluded the following:                                                            

-          They proved the validity of using the individual teaching method in the development of all the basic skills of football game which are under discussion.
