Football & Football Tricks workshop
Learn from an FA approved football coach, enhance your skills, passing techniques and shooting abilities. When enough people take part, finish with a five-a-side tournament!
Skills and techniques will be expertly and fully displayed at the beginning of each session as well as used to encourage during individual coaching. Learn ball control, co-ordination, passing techniques and improve your shooting abilities. Learn fitness and game-related exercises to improve your agility and skills. Many young people have shown an interest in starting up a football team or looking in to other career aspects of the industry, such as football management, coaching, grounds-person etc. following this workshop. It's an excellent workshop that can offer a taster of pro skills or be spread out into a whole day of activities including a tournament and prize-giving.
