Details of our courses offered outside of school hours.

As well as delivering some first class coaching into schools across the region, there are also additional great courses offered outside of school hours during term time

These sessions are held at Shrub End and the Weston Homes Community Stadium and provide fun and games for children from Reception through to school years 5 and 6.

Soccer Minis/Early Eagles 
For children aged four or in Reception/school years 1 or 2. It offers football coaching for the youngest players in two age groups. Sessions include skills coaching, fun games to reinforce the coaching points and small-sided games to give players a basic understanding of the rules of football.

Soccer Kids 
For children in school years 3, 4, 5 and 6. Coaching is split into two age groups. Sessions include a warm up, enabling children to re-visit and refine techniques whilst building confidence in game situations. 

Skills School

Soccer 4s
For children in school years 5 and 6. Soccer 4s includes lots of 4 v 4 games to develop technique, football insight and communication. Each session includes a conditioned small-sided game.

Match Nights
Match sessions for school years 3 – 6, with coaching support and guidance during small side games.

Grass-roots Goalkeeping
For aspiring goalkeepers. Techniques coached on the programme include ball-handling, shot-stopping, footwork, agility, distribution and positioning.

Futsal 
Our Futsal session will enable players to explore the exciting, fast-paced small sided game that is widely played across the world. The nature of the game places a large emphasis on technical skill and ability in situations of high pressure, and is subsequently an excellent breeding ground for football techniques that can be translated into the game. 

Many of the top world class footballers played Futsal in their youth and credit it with supporting their footballing development.
