Football 1st Academy
Football 1st Academy is about giving players of all abilities the chance to take their game to the next level. The Academy aims to give players the opportunity to improve their existing skills and techniques as well as introducing new ones, along with improving their knowledge and understanding of the game of football.
Understanding that players learn in different ways and develop at different stages, Football 1st Academy coaches are trained to deal with all levels of ability as well as all types of personalities so that all players can reach their maximum potential.
All activities are structured and aimed at the specific age of the participants. Activities will be challenging but achievable, ensuring that each individual leaves with raised self-esteem, better knowledge, greater experience and having made improvement on their overall game, as well as having fun and enjoyment.
Football 1st Academy hold development courses during the week as well as holiday courses when schools are closed, birthday parties and other school functions. Several of the courses are held here at St. Joseph’s, making use of our unique sports dome facility.
Holiday courses are open to boys and girls of all abilities aged 5-12 years of age. The football courses are an ideal opportunity for children to improve their co-ordination skills and techniques, as well as improving on their existing ones. The courses are run in a safe and fun learning environment where children can enjoy a full range of different football activities while using a wide range of equipment. Courses are also a great opportunity to enhance social skills and make lots of new friends.
