Try a free Saturday Strikers football session with NSSport

Categories: Children,East Sheen,East Sheen News,News,Sports

Does your child like playing football? Sign them up for a free Saturday Strikers session with NSSport at East Sheen Primary School.

The Saturday Strikers programme introduces football to both boys and girls aged 4-9 years. Children are divided into age groups and instructed by NSSport’s highly skilled FA qualified coaches. They recognise every child is different and engage all at levels and allow children to develop at a pace that suits them. The club creates a fun environment to learn and improve through structured practice, fun drills, skills and techniques.

Each week they will challenge the individual to build confidence and self-assurance, both on and off the pitch, by enhancing core skills through play and practice. The Saturday Strikers programme aims for all children to improve and build their basic footballing ability. How to shoot, pass, defend, attack, dribble and improve their speed and coordination. A child needs to establish a foundation of understanding and experience before they can move on to the more challenging techniques.

Sessions are held from 9:30 to 10:45am and always begin with a fun warm up which include ball control techniques. Technical and skill development will follow; and to finish, match play, giving children the opportunity to showcase their newly acquired skills!

At the end of all sessions ‘Player of the Day’, ‘Goal of the Day’ and ‘Goalkeeper of the day’ are awarded with a certificate; and once the term is concluded the coaches will look to award medals and trophies.

Here’s what parents say: 

“Saturday Strikers is absolutely brilliant. It’s a great introduction to football and will teach your child core football skills that are often ignored –control of the ball. The sessions are extremely well run and the coaches challenge the children in a fun, friendly and safe environment.”

And what children say: 

“I love Saturday Strikers! The coaches are really fun and we love playing matches to win the World Cup! I count the amount of sleeps till Football each week.”
