We deliver our weekly football training sessions around a carefully crafted age-appropriate program. Each week we aim to develop the core fundamentals of dribbling, passing, shooting, receiving, defending and team play. The sessions are delivered by our experienced coaches in superb facilities and in a fun, safe and welcoming environment.
We have two age-specific group sessions
At the early stage of football development we look at building both confidence and a foundation of skills such as dribbling, passing, receiving, and shooting. We use fun activities that build fundamental movement skills such as agility, balance, coordination, and speed.
Sessions develop decision-making, creativity and resilience through small sided games.
Depending on ability and experience we start to develop tactical understanding such as creating space and decision making in game realistic scenarios.
“It is first-rate training, terrific value for money and most important of all my son loves every minute..!”
Christian – Parent
For this age group we aim to improve understanding through bigger game-relevant scenarios. Here we master dribbling, passing, receiving, and shooting - with engaging activities specifically designed to develop the thinking of ‘When’, ‘Where’ and ‘How’ to perform skills, and to understand attacking and defending principles.
These sessions are designed to build decision-making, problem-solving and to boost confidence.
GIRLS ONLY SESSIONS
SkillsCoach offers professional coaching sessions for girls of all abilities aged 5-11 year old.
Our Girls Only Programmes vary from Holiday Camps to our weekly Girls only After School Clubs. Our weekly sessions are run in collaboration with Barnes Eagles FC and funded by The FA through the Wildcats Programme. Our sessions are run by a mixture of female and male coaches who are fully qualified FA coaches. Many of our female coaches have played pro!
Our Wildcats programme is for girls aged 5-11 who want to get involved with football for the very first time or want the opportunity to play with other girls their own age. At Wildcats, girls can play football in a fun and friendly environment which provides the perfect setting for girls to meet new friends, build confidence and stay active.
For Girls who are more advanced and need more of a challenge we provide an excellent pathway to our local grassroots Football Club – Barnes Eagles FC. We also have strong links with QPR and Chelsea academies where girls who have shown great ability have gone on to play within these professional youth teams.
With our Wildcats programme completely free there is nothing to lose!
