Current After School Clubs:

What to expect!
Our After School Clubs offer pupils the opportunity to enjoy professionally run training sessions delivered by our FA qualified coaches.
All training sessions cater for pupils of all abilities and are fully structured, with age related football drills and small sided games in line with FA guidelines designed to teach pupils the skills of football whilst improving co-ordination, agility, fitness, teamwork and confidence.

Our coaches take full responsibility for those pupils attending the sessions from collecting every child from a designated meeting area to ensuring all children have been collected at the end of each session.

After School Clubs take place weekly over a term and usually last an hour.

What to bring!
Participants will need to bring the following:
Football boots or astro trainers (depending on pitch conditions), shin pads, drink (non-fizzy), and clothing appropriate for the weather (change of clothes is advisable if wet).

Book a place!
To book a place on our After School Clubs you will need to collect an invite letter from the relevant school, complete the application slip and hand back to the relevant person (details on letter).
You will then be informed as to whether your child has been allocated a place or not.

Please note that our After School Clubs cater for limited numbers and run on a first come first served basis, therefore we cannot guarantee places to every application.
