Football classes for kids in Twickenham
Tue 29 October 2019
No matter how old your child is or their footballing ability level, there will be a football class that suits them in the Twickenham area. West London is a huge sporting hub with clubs, sessions, classes and live sports so there are so many options to get your young ones involved in.
From toddlers taking their first steps to kids entering the last year of school who dream of making it as professionals, here are three of the best football academies in the west of London which can help them to develop their skills and foster a deeper love of the game.
You’re never too young to start playing football and that is something that Sports 4 Kids are setting out to prove with their youngest classes, catering for children agreed between 18 months and three years old.
S4K base their coaching on Montessori learning methods and the Dutch Coever, Spanish Tiki-Taka and Brazilian Futsal coaching techniques, helping kids become immersed in the ways of the game via the teaching ideas of three of the finest nations ever to play the sport.
The basic premise is to help kids obtain early development of eye and ball co-ordination as well as learning how to kick a ball correctly, the two most crucial skills a child can learn in their early footballing lives.
Toddlers can join in as soon as they can walk and parents are encouraged to play too, which is a great excuse for mums and dads to show off their skills as well.
We Make Footballers is London’s leading coaching academy for children aged between four and 12 and they run after school and weekend sessions in Twickenham and across the west of Capital.
Each of their academies is run by fully qualified FA coaches and the focus is on playing football in a fun and safe environment. They cater for all abilities, helping beginners to master the basics and grow in confidence and the more advanced to fine tune their games.
For those hoping to make it into a professional academy, We Make Footballers can even help with that. Most of their coaches have links with professional clubs and if a player is good enough, they can recommend they go forward for a trial. If a player isn’t quite at that level yet, then the coaches can help to work on the areas that need improvement to get them there.
Again, the first session is free and with three different age grades, if a child loves We Make Footballers then they can stay with the programme for up to eight years.
Little Kickers provides the perfect introduction to football and delivers fun sessions across West London that take place in Church halls, sports centres and community centres. There training model is focused on getting kids active, involved in the sport and developing fundamental skills.
With excellent coaches who understand the importance of child management in the early years for those who are just getting started in football, Little Kickers ensure that sessions are always fun and safe.
As your child progresses they will move through different age groups, be given a kit and even stickers at the sessions!
