Our Skill Builders programme runs in terms 1,2 & 3. Skill Builders training sessions focus on technical skill acquisition and development activities, and incorporate fun small-sided games so players can use their skills in a game context. Our sessions are designed to help our players develop their game further in all of the fundamental areas - ball mastery, dribbling, passing, finishing and outplaying (1v1s etc.) These activities are designed to be enjoyable, while also helping players to develop their football technique, game understanding, general movement and coordination skills.

The programme is open to boys and girls aged between 9 and 13, of all abilities. We offer both Mixed and Girls Only programmes. Players sign up individually, and this programme runs separately to your team trainings.

We also offer Goalkeeper specific sessions. Find out more information below on all of our Skill Builder programmes.
