Community Football Coaching Programmes
The Academy runs community coaching sessions on a weekly basis, classes are structured in the first instance by age. Sessions run for approximately 1-2 hours, the older classes run for 2 hours. Sessions includes football skills, development of physical skills and personal and social development.
An initial assessment of the participant’s general capabilities is made; this enables the coach to benchmark the young person and measure any subsequent development in their performance. Individual support is given to enable the participants to progress at their own pace; through the various levels to the academies excellence centres.
Furthermore these sessions divert young people away from the streets and possible involvement in anti-social behaviour, crime, etc and look to channel their energy in a positive and healthy manner.
