The children who come to Shine Football Academy are split into age groups and ability.  If they don't have friends here yet, they will by the end of the day!.  The number one aim of our coaches are for the children to have a fun day doing a sport they love...

Typically, we have 3 parts to the day. Session 1 is between 10.00-11.15, sessions 2 is 11.45-12.30 and session 3 sessions is then 1.15-3.45.

Session 1 will be a technique session, Technique is the ability to perform a physical task. The children will practice loads of different techniques i.e. Passing, Receiving, Movement, Turning, Dribbling, Shooting, Defending and Attacking. All sessions are game related so the children can take the technique into a game situation.

 Session 2 will be a skills session. Skill is the ability to perform a task in a game setting. We will work on the principles of defending, principles of attacking and movement on and off the ball. The children will work in 1v1, 2v2, 2v1, 2v2, 3v2 etc. In the skills sessions, we will put the children in game setting so when it comes to the games they are ready as they have practiced their technique in the skills session.

 Session 3 is the longest session of the day. Matches! The most enjoyable part of the day for the children and the coaches, giving the children the chance to show off what they have learnt.

Football Academy is running every day from 24th July at Shine Community Sports Hall for Reception to Year 7.  Want to come?  Book online at
