A Big Hello From Us ⚽️👋
So your Super Star is football mad – Great! You are taking the first steps to help fulfil their football passion and you can get one of our last remaining spaces for your most suited class this term below!
We are sure you can relate to one of the below statements:
– “My child plays football now but is not getting the attention or quality needed….”
– “My child wants to be challenged…”
– “My child is falling behind her / his friends at football…”
- "My child wants to join a football team but I do not know how to get them started...."
The good news is no matter the football situation you find your Super Star in, our football academy sessions will kick start, or restart their football journey!
Our advanced coaching sessions at our football academy are designed to prepare your Super Star with the necessary techniques, skill and game understanding to take their football to the next level. Whether your child is interested in joining a team, plays for a team, or simply wants to have fun and develop – our football academy is the right choice for them.
⚽️ Football Academy Session Structure! ⚽️
Check out what you can expect to happen at our weekly football sessions for school years 3-6 in Croydon & Sutton
Arrival & Free Play
The first 5minutes of our class are FREE PLAY! Each Super Star is given their own ball to play with where they can experiment and have fun before the class officially kicks off!
Warm Up Game
After your Super Coach has told the group what they will be focusing on and the theme, the warm ups begin! High tempo agility, speed and coordination games are used
Your Super Star is given their own ball and works on ball manipulation, tricks & skill execution
/ Decision Making Practices
This part is where the Skillz are put to the test! Linked to the technical game but now practicing with pressure from defenders / other players
Matches and Tournaments
It's the big kick off time! We create 2-4 teams to play in a match where they will express themselves and show what they have learnt from the class! We encourage lots of celebrating and team work!
Player Of The Week
At the end of the class after we have had our debrief, our Super Coach will choose 1-2 children from their group to be "player of the week"! What happens here? You will have to find out 😬

About Skillz UK Football Classes and Parties!
Skillz UK was founded in 2012 by Ashley Thomas. Our first ever class started with just 10 children attending.
The goal has been simple! To create football classes centered around CHILDREN (or our Superstars as we like to call them ⚽️🙂). That means lots of energy, themed games and tonnes of smiles!
To date, we now have over 500 weekly members within Croydon and Sutton at our children's football classes, teaching an additional 350 per in our local nurseries and schools.
