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.

One-to-one football coaching – locations
121 coaching can take place at any of our normal training areas across Hertfordshire and Essex, and we can just as easily come to a location that suits you.
We have portable floodlights to light up whole field areas, so it’s no problem if you want evening sessions during the winter.
Places we travel to include, Hitchin, Stevenage, Bishop’s Stortford, Potters Bar, Rickmansworth, Watford and St Albans. If your town’s not on the list, call us on 07905 557535 to find out if we can come to you.
121 coaching costs £30 per 60- to 90-minute session. You can pay for each session in cash or by bank transfer. Book as many sessions as you want up front, although booking ahead guarantees availability.
We don’t offer free taster sessions for 121 coaching. But if you didn’t enjoy your first session for any reason, you don’t need to pay.
