Grass Roots Football Development School

Promoting the enjoyment of football at all levels

 

MONDAY NIGHT DEVELOPMENT SCHOOL'S VISION


For children of all abilities from the complete beginner to club level player, to be able to enjoy developing the art of playing football in a fun and friendly environment. Football can be enjoyed by children playing at the Development School without the pressure of performing in a match situation as part of team.  As children develop their football skills and become more confident they will also be developing their social, emotional and personal skills.
My role as a football coach is to promote football within a positive manner and to acknowledge children's individual abilities and needs in order to enhance their understanding and respect for the game of football and others involved.

Some children will gain in confidence and ability and want to progress to playing competitive football within a team environment and I will help families to find appropriate FA affiliated clubs that will be suitable for their individual child when the time arises.  Currently (2013) the Development School accommodates several children who now play for local FA affiliated clubs as introduced by Grassroots FDS but also continue to attend the Development School to enhance personal technical ability and skills.

Ages

The Development School caters for boys and girls from 5 years old upwards. 

FIRST SESSION IS ALWAYS FREE.

THURSDAY NIGHT ADVANCED DEVELOPMENT SCHOOL

As numbers attending Monday night sessions have increased it was decided in 2014 to start up a Thursday night session for those members whose ability and progressed and developed to a more advanced level in order to provide them with the knowledge of match play, positional play and to further advance their only individual skills.  Thursday night sessions are offered to existing members and also to those wishing to join the Development School who are already playing football to a high standard.

FIRST SESSION IS ALWAYS FREE

I provide football coaching for children both within curriculum time and during after school hours.  Currently (2013) I deliver football coaching sessions to both boys and girls at local schools in Worcestershire and also in Birmingham.
