SATURDAY MORNING DEVELOPMENT SESSIONS

Our 90-minute Saturday morning development sessions are based at Roan School Playing Fields, Kidbrooke Park Road, London.

Sessions are open to players from the Under 5 (school year reception) to the Under 14 (school year 9) age groups.

 

All sessions begin with a football specific warm-up, followed by a variety of drills and small sided games aimed at improving technical and tactical application and understanding. Competitive matches are also incorporated where possible in order to provide players with a further opportunity to develop learnt skills and techniques.

 

The theme of each session changes weekly so that players are able to improve different aspects of their game.

 

Sessions are run on a pay-as-you-play basis. A player’s first session is FREE and then just £8 per session thereafter.
