Premier Skills Academy
Hatfield Football Youth Teams
Run by professional FA qualified coaches. At our Hatfield Football Youth Club kids aged U6-U13 form teams, with cleverly designed Saturday coaching designed to improve skills and action-packed Sunday matches sure to cultivate their lifelong love of the game.
We’re not run by volunteers, instead we offer advanced coaching that’s fun and fresh. With two experienced, full time FA qualified coaches, dedicated to progressing the young footballers in our teams.
In addition to Saturday training, we also run Thursday night skills sessions. Perfect for kids who take their football seriously and want to focus on individual skill improvement. Or for those late to the sport, who have a little catching up to do.
For little ones brand new to football, our Hatfield Football Youth Club also offers FREE football coaching to welcome reception children.
Saturday training & Sunday matches included for just £6 per week. With additional Thursday Skills Training just £5 for members.
Pick and Mix
Join training sessions & play matches, or just train. It’s up to you and your child.
Led by FA Level 2 coach Dave Williams, each member of the Hounslow Youth League professional coaching team is FA accredited, DBS & CRB checked and first aid trained.
Training, and most matches take place on our excellent 3G Astroturf pitch, fewer cancellations due to bad weather!
Girls and boys of all abilities are welcome to join one of our U6 to U13s teams.
Fun & Fresh
Our Practice Play coaching style allows kids to play, minus the repetition of drills. With live matches developing their instinct and awareness, and small group work improving skills.
What's it all about?
From the essential basics to full game situations, your youngster will develop the skills that are key to playing fun, attacking football. Age-specific activities, live matches and FA accredited coaches give you the reassurance that your child is receiving the best possible start in football, learning their sport in a practical, realistic way.
But most importantly, at our Hatfield Football Club they’ll be having fun, making new friends and keeping fit in a safe, positive environment. Which we hope will be the start of a life-long love of football!
Dynamic Ball Mastery
Football is a great way for children to develop new skills, and we actively encourage home practice. To help, all our League players are given membership of the #1 individual football training programme (www.mypersonalfootballcoach.com). The clever App lets your child continue to practice ball skills at home through age appropriate interactive training in ball mastery, first touch, dribbling, passing, receiving, turning and more via smart phone or tablet.
Helping them to developing quick feet & coordination. And, as they get older to evolve and refine their technical game.
