What’s great about 121 coaching with Premier Skills Academy


Developing individual skills is too often overlooked in team training, where the focus is mainly on team results.

Knowing what to look for and how to over come any issues players may face is a sign of a great coach.

We have over 22 years of football training and coaching experience, working with both amateur and professional players. We’re perfectly placed to progress beginners, aspiring youth academy players and adults, by focusing on individual skill improvement across their attacking, defending or midfield game.

Benefits of 121 coaching


MINDSET Making improvements, setting goals and bouncing back from failure, resulting in improved self-esteem and confidence
MENTAL SKILLS Enhanced concentration, decision making, communication and determination
MENTAL RESILIENCE Enjoying pushing yourself – and performing well – out of your comfort zone
BALANCE, STABILITY & COORDINATION Improved balance and muscle group coordination, which increase your body's ability to deal with challenging tasks. In football this leads to better agility, quicker reaction times and improved overall performance.
BALL SKILLS Kicking variations, first touch, dribbling, turns, heading, shielding, scanning
OFF-BALL SKILLS Finding space, creating space, body shape, tackling, scanning
AGILITY Being nimble on your feet and able to move quickly from one movement pattern to another. Agility training improves flexibility and control, helping you to maintain proper alignment and posture.
MOBILITY Flexibility in the range of motion through muscles and joints. Vital in reducing the risk of injuries, plus improving technique and range of movement.
AEROBIC CAPACITY The ability to exercise for extended periods without tiring. Aerobic exercise reduces the risk of many conditions, including heart disease, high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes and stroke.
ANAEROBIC CAPACITY The key factor behind intense efforts, like sprinting. Anaerobic exercise helps boost metabolism as it builds and maintains lean muscle.
ATHLETICISM Physical strength and fitness, combining all of the above factors, leading to improved self-confidence and better performance in football.
