Evening and Weekend Football Coaching

Our UEFA and FA qualified coaches here at Foundation of Light are highly experienced in delivering evening and weekend coaching courses for youngsters of all ages and abilities.

Each session is delivered with an emphasis on fun and engagement, with the technical aspects being developed during small-sided games with age appropriate questions, demonstrations and challenges.

Little Dribblers

Little Dribblers is a fun introduction to football for 18 months to 5 year olds and an ideal choice for parents who want to give their children a healthy and active start in life.

Developed in partnership with Early Years professionals and teachers, and ran by our specialist coaches, this unique programme is also mapped to the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum. This ensures that your youngster develops interpersonal skills and more, as well as have fun with a football.

Little Skills

Little Skills (5 to 7 years) familiarises children with the building block techniques of football, such as dribbling, passing, receiving and shooting.

Game Play

From aged 8, players are encouraged to take the next step into Game Play. This reinforces technique through match-like games where youngsters can apply their football and decision-making skills in more challenging situations.
