Advanced Coaching Centre

FDP BannerSaints Foundation delivers an Advanced Coaching Centre for boys and girls at Goals Soccer Centre in Southampton.

The one hour sessions are split into the following age groups:

  • 6.00-7.00pm for players aged between 6 to 9 years
  • 7.00-8.00pm for players aged between 10-13 years

This centre offer’s players between 6 to 13 years of age the opportunity to improve, enhance and hone their on-field skills and confidence. Our team of outstanding coaches encourage players to be more active and help them develop to be the best football player they possibly can be. Alongside practical sessions we also encourage the all-important ‘soft’ social elements of fun, gaining confidence and progressing to the next level of our player progression pathway.

The sessions are delivered by experienced and UEFA/ FA qualified coaches and will follow a similar curriculum to the one used in the world renowned Southampton FC Academy. Each session will encompass the FA Four Corner Model and will focus on a Technical and Tactical theme, encouraging players to work on different techniques and apply them into a range of tactical situations, helping them to develop and improve game understanding.

Each player will receive a certificate of attendance and individualised feedback from the coaches at the end of each term. Players will then be re-invited back to the Advanced Coaching Centre or offered alternative player pathways within one of our programmes at Saints Foundation.

The centre is strictly invitation only and players will be recommended to attend the centre by Saints Foundation coaches who have identified them during sessions within the PL School Sport, Weekend, School Holiday and the Football Development Programme.
