Football Coaching Masterclasses
Football Masterclass Series 2021/2022 - Juvenile Boys U14 to U16
Over the next 8-10 weeks, the senior men’s football team are delivering a series of weekly football masterclasses to our older juvenile male footballers, on the current under 14, 15 and 16 teams.
The senior team brought forward this exciting initiative, a series of progressive football coaching sessions, to help foster relationships with the juvenile section of the club, particularly with those who will shortly be adults themselves. Delivered by the senior footballers and management, there will also be involvement from external elite-level coaches, and the juvenile team mentors. The final week is an offsite full-day session, where the players and coaches will take part in a mix of class-based and pitch-based sessions covering subjects such as sports psychology and nutrition, and coaching from some special guests.
