Our academy is perfect for those aged between 5 and 11 who wish to learn and progress with football beyond normal school lessons and physical education. Led by former professional player Garry Haylock, our team coaches undergo stringent DBS checks, have FA approval and carry UEFA pro licenses.

All coaches play a key role in a child’s sporting development.

Playing football can literally set the ball rolling for a more active lifestyle, improving wellbeing and daily motivation. Of course, football is a team game, so it is ideal for children to learn and advance their key social and communication skills. We look to coach and nurture ability, technique and reading of the game, raising the platform for children to build their confidence and express themselves.

We believe that playing sport, particularly football, has a positive impact on all aspects of a child’s life. Irrespective of the venue, be it a school, your own chosen location or at one of our football holiday camps, our academy coaches still have an enthusiastic, almost childlike love for the game.
