Our Grassroots Plus training programme allows players to learn the basic skills needed to start a football journey, be that with with a team on a Sunday, School teams or playing with mates.

With over 15 years experience in developing players to improve, work as a team, maker firiends and pick up hte odd trophy, we think we know a thing or two about the Grassroots of football.

Our sessions work on different aspects of the game at this level, building on each area of the game.

Sessions are based around warm up drills, followed by planned sessions. to work on the specific areas of passing, finding space, defending, attacking, shooting.

Sessions normally finish with a game, where, players are encouraged to “put into practice” the specific areas they have worked on within the session.

The beauty of this training is, that it builds a core experience base in specific areas associated with organised football. This is both a benefit to non players who want to join a team and existing Grassroots players

We also have extensive resources with our team of University trained coaches from Leeds Beckett, the university involved in designing the FA England DNA programme.

Coaching at this level requires an understanding of the balance of fun and learning, to ensure our players understand that enjoying the game of football should always come first.
