Our Skill Centre involves one training per 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 sign up individually, and this programme runs separately to your team trainings.
