My son went to the football coaching in the main holidays, he totally loved it and was gutted when it ended! The staff were lovely, very professional, would certainly recommend!

Took my 5yrs old for the half term camp. Wasn't sure whether he will like it with being the youngest in the class. But must say...he loves it! He keeps talking about it and really enjoy the variety of excercises they do at every session! I would recommend to everybody!!!! Great fun!

Here's an outline of what the typical day looks like



Registration and arrival activities-

On arrival parents will sign in their children and there will be 1v1, 2v2, and 3v3 pitches set up to make sure the children have something to do the moment they register.


Activity 1-

Once registration is complete and all children have arrived they will be given an overview of what the day will include. At this point the children will be given the opportunity to request any games that they want to play or mention any particular skills or techniques that they would like to work on.

After the overview the children will move onto activity 1 which will introduce the football skill for the day. The coaches will show that children the skill and give them an opportunity to have a go at it. The skill chosen will be something that can be broken down and simplified and also something that can be made more complex which means, no matter the ability of the child they coach will ensure that they have success.



After activity 1 the children will be given a 15 minute break. This will be for them to get a little bit of rest and reflect on the football skill of the day and  games they have just played.


Activity 2-

After the break activity 2 will start and this will involve a range of games that create plenty of opportunities to work in teams, problem solve and score plenty of goals. Children will have opportunities to work towards individual, group or team challenges.

11:45am- 12:15pm


At around 12pm the children will break for lunch. The children will be taken over to the dining hall in the main building and will have lunch with children from our other activities that are running on site that day. This is great if you have a child on each of our different camps as they will be able to come together at lunch time and catch up on the fun the have had.


Free Play-

After lunch the children will have an opportunity for some supervised free play. They will be allowed to play with all of the equipment and just play. If they are not sure what to do our coaches will help them and give them some ideas. During this time children generally play head tennis, american penalties, penalties, mini match's, football cricket and many more games...


Activity 3

After free-play children will focus on individual techniques and developing them in opposed and unopposed situations, this will include mastering 1v1 situations, finishing, passing, attacking and defending. These activities will give children a chance to improve their decision making and a chance to practice different techniques in a fun, challenging environment no matter their ability.



After activity 3 there will be another 15 minute break where children will get a chance to look over some of the filming we have been doing throughout the day and play back some of the goals they have scored and skills they have used.


Activity 4-

After the break the children will move onto activity 4 which is the final activity. Activity 4 will be mini-matches, so 3v3's, 4v4's and 5v5s . This will give them the chance to apply everything they have learnt throughout the day, work as a team applying some tactics when defneding and attacking, and hopefully score lots of goals.

3:25pm - 3:30pm

Parent Pick up-

This will bring us to the end of the day when we will do player of the day awards and then final signout with the parents.

3:30pm - 5:30pmFor children who want to stay till 5:30pm there will be a range of games and additional coaching provided.
