Football

Our football development team provide a number of opportunities for players of all abilities to participate and develop a love for the game. From Mini Kickers to walking football our skilled and interactive sessions that develop your skills and stay active.

Mini Kickers 3-4yrs

Remember, as soon as your child reaches 3yrs, he/she should be more than ready to start there football/sporting journey . Classes consist of an infectiously enthusiastic coach inviting you and your child to join forces for a first foray into all things football – nothing too clever just full-on footy fun.

As your wee one is starting to reach the age of 5 its time to look forward to a new challenge and moving into our technique centres where the parents will retreat to the side-lines for a well-earned breather.

Touch and Technique Centre 5-7yrs

As the name implies is the point where most kids now choose to go it alone. However this welcome demonstration of independence doesn’t mean they won’t want their No.1 fan supporting them from the sidelines.

Street Games 8-11yrs

Game related small sided games which encourage players to problem solve make effective decisions and improvise more. Better still, the games are designed as activities players will be eager to be involved in, due to their attacking and goal-scoring nature. This allows coaches the opportunity to pass more control of the sessions onto the kids therefore making a stimulating, challenging and dynamic environment much easier to create.
