Coaching Opportunities and Development Pathways in the Kingston Area

We Make Footballers
10 October 2022

We Make Footballers are the UK's number 1 football academy for children, offering weekly training, coaching sessions and holiday camps for 4-12 year olds, both girls and boys. Our coaches are highly trained and experts in their field with a large majority involved in playing the game themselves too. 

Our Kingston and Surbiton locations make up 2 of the 60 venues across England. 

Our values are passion, safety and development all branching under the overarching and most important value of fun. Each session runs with an underlying theme which is sent to the coaches prior to the session to ensure complete understanding and comprehension of the most effective delivery styles.

We are currently looking for motivated and passionate coaches to join our team and deliver sessions each week. We currently have 6 training days and hope to expand this over the coming months to offer our coaching team more opportunities and development in their careers.

We are looking for volunteers, Junior Coaches, Senior Coaches and Academy Manages to join the team and bring their expertise to our sessions for players ages 4-12.

Suitable candidates will have an enthusiasm for coaching children and have a passion for the sport. They must have excellent communication skills, display initiative under pressure and have the ability to adapt.

Development pathways:

We work hard to offer a development pathway to our players but this doesn’t end there. We are dedicated to helping our coaches progress within their career and gain higher status within the company. 

We value our volunteers, junior and senior coaches in the highest regard and offer frequent continuous professional development to enhance their skills including our very own Coach Learning App and qualifications. 

We Make Footballers is the perfect place to propel your career into football coaching and make your mark on the future of football.
