SOCCER SKILLS

AN AFTER-SCHOOL CLUB PROGRAMME FOR YOUNG FOOTBALLERS, BEGINNERS & ADVANCED

The EPC deliver our ‘Soccer Skills’ clubs to Primary Schools as part of our School Sports Partnership. Soccer Skills was launched by the EPC for Boys & Girls aged between 4 – 11 as a perfect chance for them to play football after school whatever the age & ability.

 

During our Soccer Skills sessions, we aim to:

  • Make every session that we deliver to be Fun, Safe & Enjoyable for all.

  • Help every single child that attends our sessions – treating all players as an individual which will offer assistance & guidance whenever a child needs/asks for it.

  • Deliver every session in a positive learning environment with learning objectives set for each group. We will ensure that players come and enjoy themselves after school as well as learning something new and different each week.

  • Open Soccer Skills to everyone - whether you’re an advanced player that wants to play After School for some additional training or a beginner that wants to learn the basics of the game, Soccer Skills is open to everyone and is committed to players learning at their own individual speed.

  • Offer variety on our Soccer Skills sessions – each week players will be taught a different coaching focus that promotes a variety of fun-based games that aid learning & enjoyment as part of our termly programme.

  • To promote behaviour & discipline strategies within our sessions, ‘Football Stars’ are on offer to pupils that show good behaviour during our games & we aim to liaise closely with the school to update them on individual behaviour reports.

  • Help players build confidence, self-esteem and to introduce them to new friends. We put social skills at the top of our priorities during Soccer Skills & is featured heavily on our SSP Philosophy.

  • To make every session look professional, safe & engaging for all.

  • Lastly, and most importantly, we want all players to have as much football time as possible and for each child to have plenty of FUN!

 

Soccer Skills is a termly programme that includes 1 x 60 minute session per week that starts at a time to suit your school. Each session that we deliver includes a fun based Warm Up that will concentrate on players ABCs in games that are enjoyable & safe for all.

Following this, each week the group will be taught a different coaching topic that can include Dribbling, Passing, Ball Control, Goalkeeping & Shooting, these skill topics are delivered in fun-based games that enhance pupils motivation & enjoyment for the game.

To finish each session, players are placed in mini-tournaments to work within a small group, therefore showing how they can socially work with others during games. The players can decide what tournaments they would like to play, with the options to include World Cup, Champions League, Premier League & much more! Individual challenges & rewards are on offer to players who show positive learning outcomes during our fun games & matchplay.

 

To help with positive sportsmanship & attitudes throughout the sessions, a ‘Player of the Day’ is awarded to pupils that show these important characteristics throughout & reasons for this award will be explained to the others in the group to highlight the importance of good behaviour. Our coaching staff are CRB/DBS checked, hold FA/UEFA qualifications & are First Aid trained. EPC are very committed to ensuring each member of the coaching staff is regularly trained to the highest level.

 

EPC believe our Soccer Skills can play a very important step in our player pathway with a number of players now playing for Professional Clubs, these players have shown how valuable Soccer Skills can be to the development of each player that attends our sessions. For more information about the players who used Soccer Skills as their first step, please see our Success Stories page.
