Why Choose Us

Loves Football coach hundreds of girls and boys each week.

I imagine that just like you, their parents are not expecting their kids to become the next Ronaldo!!! They just want them to have fun, be healthy, make friends and develop their football skills along the way.

We think there is too much pressure at grassroots level, and it’s a crying shame that so many kids are turning away from football because of it. But it’s not Football that they’re falling out of love with!!!

So, our sessions are fun, light-hearted and criticism-free 🙂

James, Founder

Which session suits you?

Join a Team

Find a Team, 6-8 years

Suits: Boys & girls of any level of ability, who are comfortable with competitive football and would like to join a grassroots team
Venue: 3G pitch
Expect: Grassroots football can be a challenge - parents struggle to find teams and managers struggle to find players! We invite local managers to take part in the session. Kids play without fear of being on ‘trial’ and might get invited to join a team! In 2020 we helped 25 players find new teams

Beginners

Beginners, 4-6 years

Suits: This our entry-level group, for boys and girls who are kicking a ball for the first time, upto about 12 months' of experience
Venue: Indoor sportshall
Expect: Playground games with a football twist, and small-sided matches so every player get lots of touches on the ball. Children learn to kick, pass and control the ball with both feet, but most of all to have fun and express themselves. The kids love the trophy presentation at the end! 🙂

Mixed

Mixed, 6-8 years

Suits: Boys & girls who have played some kind of football (about 12 months), even in a Beginners class or at the park with friends!
Venue: Indoor sportshall
Expect: Technical development, playground style games with a football twist, small-sided matches in a mini tournament. Kids learn about positions and working together, and these groups act as springboard into our more technical Futsal groups. We always finish the session with "trophy-time" 🙂

Girls Only

Girls-only, 5-11 years

Suits: Both groups (5-6yrs & 7yrs+) are a mix of abilities with girls who are total beginners to football, upto about 12 months experience
Venue: Indoor sportshall or 3G pitch
Expect: Slower pace of play and girls get plenty of time on the ball. Sessions include technical development, football-themed playground games, and small-sided matches in a mini-tournament. The girls are so friendly and they love competing for the end of session trophy!

Futsal

Futsal, 8-13 years

Suits: Boys & girls who enjoy fast-paced, non-stop football! We have three groups based on age/ability (Beginners, Junior, Futsal)
Venue: Indoor sportshall
Expect: This Brazilian version of football is THE best way to improve your technical ability and creativity! Futsal is played with a heavier ball so players learn how to use their body and space more effectively, whilst the extra weight on the ball means they develop their technique more quickly

5 A Side

5-a-side, 9-14 years

Suits: Boys & girls who enjoy fast-paced, competitive football! We have 3 pitches and divide the groups based on age and ability
Facilities: Outdoor astroturf
Expect: This session is pure football matches from start to finish and both parents and kids LOVE it! We mix the teams up each week to ensure it remains competitive and fun. The teams play each other in a mini-tournament, and at the end of the month we have an award for the Most Valuable Player

“THEY LOVE YOUR CLASSES”

Every week we coach boys and girls from 4-15yrs. We make sure that the groups are split by ability – some of our kids are total beginners, whilst others have been scouted by professional clubs.

Our younger groups play ‘football-themed’ playground games and small-sided matches, whilst our more experienced groups enjoy technical ball-mastery, Futsal, weekly 5-a-side matches and tactical development.

All our sessions are fun and enjoyable!

“I can see his confidence growing already!”

He is buzzing!!! The trophy was on his bed last night! He’s absolutely loving it thanks James. I can see his confidence growing already!!

Brilliantly run. Encourages happiness and builds confidence for all the players rather than just about playing the best players to win. It is so wonderful to find a coach that instils the right values.
