Hi Super Parents 🙂
Our small group sessions are arriving from Monday 6th July - Friday 24th July (3 weeks)!
We've done our research and worked out how we will be able to make these sessions awesome, safe and football filled, so I'm delighted to announce the start of these. It's been way too long since we've seen you 😊
These spaces are very limited (genuinely we can only take 10 children per session with two coaches so they are super tight!), so please do not delay booking via the link below. I have also included further details for you below including a little FAQ. Should you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to ask ⚽️
These sessions will be for 3.5 years old - 11 years. The timings of the class will be dependant on the age group:
3.5 year old old Tots - School Year 1 = 30 minute sessions
School Year 2 - School Year 6 = 50 minute sessions
As we have weekly classes in our usual schedule all across Croydon and Sutton, we have tried to accommodate as many families as possible by using places that are local to your regular sessions. We will be using local parks to deliver the sessions across the two towns. Where possible, we have also tried to use the same day that you attend your weekly class with us, so that it slots right back in to your weekly routine 😊
Our venues we will be using:
- Rotary Park Purley
- Beddington Park, Beddington / Carshalton / Wallington area
- Purley Way Playing Fields, Croydon / South Croydon / Central Croydon area
- Roundshaw Park, Wallington / Roundshaw
- Lloyd Park, Selsdon / South Croydon / Central Croydon area
Having fun and safe sessions is the most important thing whilst lockdown restrictions are still in place. The FA have released guidance for football coaches on the best way to deliver sessions, which we will be adhering to at all times. See below for full details:
How many children in a group to 1 coach?
We are allowed 5 children to every one coach. We will always have 2 coaches present, meaning we can run sessions with 10 children
How will social distancing work?
All children must stay 2 meters apart at all times. Each child will be provided with their own equipment to use during the session, and where games involve using other children as defenders or goalkeepers, social distancing will be adhered to - we are clever and creative with our session plans, you know that already though right? 😬
What will a session look like?
Sessions will incorporate fast paced and Super fun movement games, plus dribbling, target practice and shooting games too. There will be tonnes of challenges for all to complete ⚽️
Will sessions run in the rain?
It's July so lets hope there's no rain, but yes. We do not have the facility of using indoors yet, so sessions will be on come rain or shine 😉
How will you keep the sessions hygienic?
At the start and end of all sessions, all equipment used will be wiped down and cleaned with anti-bacterial sprays. There are 10 minute gaps in-between back to back sessions where we will use this to clean and prepare for the next 🧼
I've missed out on the spaces, will there be more?☹️
If there is a higher demand for spaces than we currently have the capacity for, yes, we will open up more sessions! You just need to join the waiting list and we will build a new session / add in another coach!
Who will be leading on the sessions?
Coach Ash, Dan and some of the team will be involved with the sessions! We only have a small team, so you will know the coach whoever is there 💙
