Football Academy Sessions For School Years 3-6 In Croydon & Sutton!

Our football sessions for School Year 3-6 can prepare your child for a football team or to simply develop their football Skillz. Catering for ALL abilities!


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


Technical Game

Your Super Star is given their own ball and works on ball manipulation, tricks & skill execution


Skill Game
/ 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 😬
