Footy School launched in 2016 in Bedfordshire and before long had no room for any more players or sessions :( (sad face)
However, Footy School worked with some very special people-and together-helped create many teams in grass roots football along the way-which we continue to do so today :) (happy face!)
Footy School is now developing in to new counties across the U.K. to deliver it's special football programme. Batten down the hatches, there's a Footy School storm of lots of fun sessions coming your way ! :) :) :) :) :) :) :) (lots of happy faces!)
Welcome to Footy School-where your child continues their learning and development on the football pitch!
Founders Chris & Michelle have been involved with football for many years. Chris had spells at youth level with Chelsea and Stuttgart before getting involved with coaching at an early age.
Chris did his first F.A. coaching course over 2 decades ago and was soon presented with a great opportunity to work full time in the U.S.A. as a young coach-with subsequent coaching roles in Europe and then returning to the U.K. to coach at Luton Town in their youth development programme.
Michelle has been involved with football for many years and has developed an excellent array of skills in the industry including extremely important and vital roles in safeguarding, supporting grass roots clubs and dealing with the effective operations of running a football business.
Footy School offers the opportunity for all ability levels to play football.
Every player can take their game to the next level with our FUNdamental learning and development approach to football.
We don't just coach at Footy School-we inspire.
To deliver fun, exciting football sessions in 4 specific age groups/development phases.
We are focused on growing our Footy School programme to be as accessible to as many children as possible throughout the U.K. and beyond!
What We Value
We have a focus on fundamental skills like dribbling, passing, shooting, tackling and basic game rules tailored for the youngest participants.
Introduction to Football
Sessions aimed at specific individual skills and development such as shooting, ball control and defensive techniques.
Skill Development Sessions
Organising mini-matches and small-sided games to introduce the concepts of teamwork, positioning, and game strategy in a fun environment.
Age-appropriate exercises and drills to enhance fitness-with healthy activity, agility, and coordination-crucial for young athlete's overall development.
Our sessions provide a comprehensive focus on team ethics and development. We look to improve every player individually while improving the teamwork of the group.
Our Reef shark sessions (2-3 years old) involve grown ups and they get actively involved with our fun sessions. This helps to educate all about football basics-including positive encouragement and support.
