Our Kickers & Junior Classes have proved to be a great success with the emphasis on teaching Soccer and Fundamental Movement Skills through using fun games. Each child has their own ball for the duration of the class. The more touches of the ball they can have the more their skills will improve.
At the Academy we understand that the coaching of 3,4,5 year old's needs to be done in a completely different way to coaching older children.
In the Mini and Big Kickers classes, Parental/Guardian involvement is key to its success. Parents/Guardians work alongside their child to help keep them engaged during the teaching element of our sessions! It is great fun for both Parent and Child. Our Junior Class uses the same teaching technique but without the Parental/Guardian involvement.
We do not play Matches in the Mini/Big Kickers or Junior classes.
In the Senior and Graduate classes we use a more structured but still a fun, approach to teaching soccer. Children are taught the values of soccer being a team game but are also encouraged to express their individual skills as often as possible. Children are encouraged to participate as much as possible and to the best of their ability. We play small sided matches in these classes.
If you are interested in registering your child or require any information please contact us.
The Academy is open on Sunday mornings from September to December and February to May. The Academy is closed for all School, Bank holidays and for Winter break Dec'20 to Feb'21.
