Having spent many years coaching children’s football in all the different age groups, we're still amazed at how much time and attention some coaches give to their best players.
Often resulting in the players who need the extra help receiving the least.
Whilst it's great to have talented children on your team, often they only need minor tweaks to their gameplay.
The children that really lose out in these types of situation are the quieter, less technically gifted ones.
They're often overlooked during drills, get less playing time during games, and lose confidence when they make a bad pass or miss an easy chance at goal.
A lot of parents would love to see their child become the next Christiano Ronaldo or Lionel Messi but unfortunately for 99.9% of kids, that's just not what the future holds for them.
Each child develops physically and mentally at their own pace, and something that might be easy for one, may be near impossible for another.
But don't worry, there's good news…
While your child is young, they are able pick up new skills and techniques remarkably fast and, once mastered, they become second nature.
That's why it's so important to work on four main core areas alongside the match specifics.
Our football drills focus on improving your child’s:
Mini Tekkers offer private football coaching sessions which consist of fun games and activities that subtly focus on these four areas. They also improve things like control, passing, dribbling and shooting.
We're always happy to welcome new children on a 1-to-1, 1-to-2 or 1-to-3 basis. Meaning your child will develop the skills and confidence to shine and can potentially do this alongside a friend or two.
All sessions last for 60 minutes and will be tailored for each child's particulr needs depending on where our coach feels they need the most improvement.
We also ask that you make a commitment to attend at least four lessons in order for our coach to be able to fully assess your child's weaker areas and help us build more tailored sessions for them in the future.
Currently we are only offering sessions to a very small number of children so if you are interested in discussing private football coaching further, please get in touch by completing the form below or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
