WE MAKE FOOTBALLERS
Helping 4-12 year old boys and girls, of all abilities, become the best they can be!
About we make footballers
We Make Footballers® have been running for the past 9 years. Having had great success in Middlesex, Surrey and West London, We Make Footballers have now become a football coaching franchise.
We Make Footballers have a simple philosophy. To provide best in class professional football coaching for boys and girls of all abilities. Our unique coaching methodology, common sense and passion for football enables us to create the perfect environment for a child to learn and develop. Through our network we provide pathways for our players to join professional academies and local grassroots clubs. We’re making football fun!
Our coaches are professional highly trained people who have a talent and passion for coaching and teaching! We are constantly recruiting the best young coaches in the country.
We have developed the perfect formula for sessions which ensure children are always left challenged, inspired and wanting more!
WMF have been running for 10 years and have become experts at giving children the best football experience available.
Our Facilities and Equipment
We take great pride in the facilities we rent and always ensure we have access to indoor and outdoor facilities during the winter months, which means our training is rarely cancelled!
Health and Safety
At We Make Footballers, we take Health and Safety extremely seriously. All of our staff members go through an extensive training programme which ensures you know your children are 100% safe in our care.
Our founders and some of our Academy Coaches have played and/or coached at the highest level for clubs such as Chelsea, Manchester United, Arsenal and Manchester City. We have coaches who have represented their country and have been instrumental in helping some of the top academy players in the country achieve success.
At We Make Footballers® we recruit good people and train them to be great coaches.
However it is essential they meet our strict criteria before they beign our training programme.
Our coaches must be bursting with enthusiasm and energy. They will be dealing with young children, who need high energy levels to equal their own. We are looking for the type of coaches who could also be children’s television presenters!
Our senior coaches must understand the game to a high level. Some of our players will be going to play at professional academies and the children will only have as much knowledge as they are given from their coaches.
The majority of our coaches have played at a very high level. We believe it is much harder to be a top coach if you haven’t played the game to a reasonable standard yourself. Because our coaches have played at top academies and professional clubs themselves, they are able to demonstrate all technical aspects of the game and advise on the game from a player’s point of view.
Our coaches have wonderful creative imaginations, which means they can come down to the children’s level and create amazing, fun experiences for the players. Young children are far more likely to learn if the coach is tapping into their world with pirates, aliens and monsters!
Our academy managers are, at minimum, FA level 3 qualified, with younger coaches Level 1 and 2 qualified. We also hold our own WMF exams which coaches must complete.
Coaches and staff members working for We Make Footballers must hold a valid DBS check before they can being working with any children.
To become a senior coach with We Make Footballers, a coach will need to have coached for a period of 2 years before they will have gained enough experience to lead sessions. This policy means our coaches are always experienced enough to ensure sessions continue at the highest level.
