Clear instructions for clarity prior to drills

Our training sessions for age groups 8-16 are open to both development and advanced players with an emphasis on age appropriate training. Each level of training is split into an age group of 5-7 year olds, 8 to 12-year-olds and 12 to 16-year-olds.

Development Group – Our view is that all children should be allowed the opportunity to learn regardless of their ability. These sessions are for any children that want to play football and may have only played at School or at home with friends and family. Our focus is to develop the initial skills and confidence to perform basic skill sets with an emphasis on movement, receipt and distribution of the ball. While hard work is a core value for us, there is also a fun element to our sessions.

Advanced Group – These players will have grasped techniques that we call ball mastery and will now want to progress to the more technical and tactical side of the game of football. With a combination of drills and games based scenarios, we provide the link to making an all rounded football player, capable of understanding the requirements of each player position within a team framework.

One to One Sessions – An hour long session that is dedicated to working on areas of the game that require improvement on a personal basis. With a dedicated coach, the player can discuss the areas that they feel need improvement and together they can build up a comprehensive training plan.

As places are limited, to confirm your interest, please contact us via telephone on 07719 374139 or via email and we can then forward you joining instructions for the session.
