Harpenden Football Training
Friendly football training for beginners. At our Harpenden football club kids from reception to year 4 attend weekly training sessions, with action packed games and coaching activities cleverly designed to improve skills and develop their lifelong love of the game.
Our mini footballers get to play regular, fun mini matches against each other designed to see how they are performing. As well as taking part in their first competitive matches as part of the West Herts Youth League.
Plus, if your little one is football crazy, they can also be entered for a place in Harpenden Colts U7 team. However, please note a place is not guaranteed, and children entering must be registered with us before Christmas.
Action packed training and matches! Reception, Year 1 & Year 2 Sunday mornings. Year 3 & Year 4 Monday after school.
Led by FA Level 2 coach Dave Williams, each member of the Hounslow Youth League professional coaching team is FA accredited, DBS & CRB checked and first aid trained.
Girls and boys football that’s designed for beginners, with exciting skills games and friendly matches.
Fun & Fresh
Our Practice Play coaching style allows kids to play, minus the repetition of drills. With live matches developing their instinct and awareness, and small group work improving skills.
What's it all about?
From the essential basics to full game situations, your youngster will develop the skills that are key to playing fun, attacking football. Age-specific activities, live matches and FA accredited coaches give you the reassurance that your child is receiving the best possible start in football, learning their sport in a practical, realistic way.
But most importantly, at our Harpenden Football Training sessions they’ll be having fun, making new friends and keeping fit in a safe, positive environment. Which we hope will be the start of a life-long love of football!
Dynamic Ball Mastery
Football is a great way for children to develop new skills, and we actively encourage home practice. To help, all our League players are given membership of the #1 individual football training programme (www.mypersonalfootballcoach.com). The clever App lets your child continue to practice ball skills at home through age appropriate interactive training in ball mastery, first touch, dribbling, passing, receiving, turning and more via smart phone or tablet.
Helping them to developing quick feet & coordination. And, as they get older to evolve and refine their technical game.
