Our Skill Centre involves a training each week, with each training incorporating a mixture of small sided football games and skill building activities. These games and activities are designed to be enjoyable, while also helping players to develop their football technique, game understanding, and general movement and coordination skills.

The programme is open to boys and girls aged between 9 and 12, of all abilities. Players may sign up individually, and will be grouped by age and ability, or you can sign up as a team.

about the programme

The Skill Centre programme is open entry for all players wishing to take part.

Our ideal is teams sign up for the skill centre as a team. This allows teams to attend and train together as a team. It also allows the teams to cost share to ensure all players can attend.

Individuals can sign up if their team opts not to.
