The Football Football programme runs every week at 21 locations nationwide. Players can join at the start or part way through a programme. Everyone is welcomed and players of all abilities can get involved.
The "Play like a Champion" programme starts on Saturday 5th March
The "Play like Champions" programme starts on Saturday 5th March and offers a new, fun programme with lots of new skills for the players to learn.
The programme offers something a little different with weekly sessions focusing on developing skills and techniques such as using two feet, being a team captain, volleys and how to take a penalty.
The basic skills such as dribbling, passing, finishing on goal, attacking and defending will also be explored in a fun way and in a way that is appropriate for the ages of the children.
All the games are in a 5-a-side format which means players are always involved with more touches, more passes, more shots and more goals!

As the number of players is strictly limited to 10 players per session all 7 sessions need to be booked in advance to guarantee your place. Each session is designed to be age appropriate to match the needs of the players and are run for players within 2 year age bands: 5/6, 7/8, 9/10, 11/12.
The emphasis will be on the needs of the children. For the younger age groups the priority will be basic physical literacy skills such as agility, balance and co-ordination with many touches of the ball with technical football skills and decision making introduced as children move into the older age groups.
Specific skills and techniques will be introduced each week and an adapted game will allow these skills to be developed. Each session will include ‘the match’ where the coach will encourage the skills to be used in a free play situation.
