At We Make Footballers Sydenham, we aim to develop children in their football journey through a fun, passionate and safe program. Everyone gets an average of 500 touches on the ball each session. Each drill is designed to stimulate and challenge players of all abilities, and our ratio of 1 coach for every 10 players, allows us to focus on all of them and take any action needed to improve them. Whatever your child's ability, whether a beginner or an already more experienced or talented player, at We Make Footballers Sydenham, we will be able to help. For the more advanced ones, we can help create links with various Premier League Academies.

Over the years, more than 300 young players have signed with professional Academies through our Company, and the next could be your child. Nevertheless, we believe that every child has potential, and through football, they can improve their social skills, their confidence, and their resilience. Our mission is simply to dedicate ourselves to them and help them become the best
they can be, in football and life.

Why do Children & Parents in Sydenham Love our Training?

Improved football technique

We break down the football fundamentals in a simple and engaging way. Then, our 1-on-1 drills give your child the time to reinforce what they've learnt at their own pace.

Teammates to mates

We only have 10 children per coach to ensure high quality training and the chance for your child to build friendships. We also have strict anti-bullying policies so they will always feel safe.

Healthy children are happier children

Exercise is best when it doesn't feel like exercise. Our weekly football training and holiday development camps are fun, but also boost your child's fitness, speed, movement, and agility too.

A real brain booster (that's smart!)

It's not just physical and social skills, our unique sessions help with cognitive function too. You will see your child develop better concentration, learning, listening, and decision-making skills week after week.

We Make Footballers is fantastic. Our daughter has enjoyed many hours of football training on Saturday mornings and in the holidays. What a great way to motivate kids with sport, teach them to win, to lose, to support others and to strive to be the best they can.

Frequently asked questions

Are you looking for a football training academy to partner with?

How it works: We provide players and teams for local grassroot teams to compete at a competitive grassroots level. The partnered club recommend WMF to players who aren’t quite ready to play at a grassroots level side (players may be too young or new to football).

What safety procedures are in place and are your coaches DBS checked?

All of our coaches are fully DBS checked and at least one member of staff on site will be first aid trained.
