St Albans fun skills sessions


We are looking for new players to join our successful teams. Children in school year 1 - 3 please contact Dave 07905557535

In St Albans we run skills sessions for Reception-age children up to Year 5. This will change as the children grow older. 

We always keep the emphasis on fun, because that’s how kids learn best and grow to love football. In a structured but pressure-free environment, we use games and activities to reinforce coaching points and improve core skills.

For training sessions for other age groups, call head coach David Williams on 07905 557535.

About St Albans football training


Fridays are for children that want to play for a team, we may not have a space immediately, but as soon as one becomes available we can put your bidding footballer into the team. Beats joining a waiting list with no football. 

Sundays are for beginners and for those that just want to play without the hassle of joining a team. From the essential basics to game situations, your youngster will develop the skills that are key to playing fun, attacking football. Age-specific activities run by FA-accredited coaches ensure that your child is receiving the best possible football coaching. Most importantly, they’ll be having fun, making new friends and keeping fit in a safe, positive environment.
