Football Skills School was established in 2014 as an environment for children to enjoy themselves and learn in a fun and controlled space. We believe in coaching children’s footballing ability in a positive and character-building environment, and that through football, we can get the best from children and encourage them to think for themselves.
Through enjoyable, contained, flexible activities, we can help children maintain a healthy lifestyle, while teaching fundamental life skills in the process. Skills like discipline, fair play and co-operation, all of which help children to realise their potential during their formative years.
At Football Skills School we have F.A. Licensed coaches that all have creative ideas to help and progress children in ways that will help every child’s needs and ambitions. All of the Football Skills School coaches are CRB/DBS checked regularly, in line with the strict guidelines put in place by governing bodies. All have safeguarding practices in place and there will also be qualified first aiders on site.
All of the Football Skills School family are devoted to expanding their knowledge and also to help children progress with football and embark on a journey together to achieve this. Football Skills School coaches have a collective footballing knowledge of over 50 years in the game in all levels of football.
Football Skills School loves children with the right attitude. Practice makes permanent! Instil correct habits: the more games you play, the more ingrained a habit becomes (good and bad). No matter how hard a situation, children are taught to play their way out of trouble and retain possession.
We realise children develop at different stages and are fully committed to the Long-Term Athlete Development Plan for each child. Every child will make mistakes, but learn, have fun and be creative!
