5Ways Saturday Soccer School prides itself on it’s family friendly atmosphere.  We offer gentle and professional, age appropriate coaching in an environment of positive encouragement.  We believe that every child has the right to enjoy playing The Beautiful Game.

Our unique, flexible coaching structure is designed to allow all children to get everything they can out of the game.  Whilst slower developers have the opportunity to play with children of similar ability, those who want a stiffer challenge can find it in the advanced groups.  Certificates and medals at the end of each course then serve as a special reminder of what the children have achieved.

Whether introducing football for the first time to a group of 4-year-olds or explaining a complicated passing drill to the advanced group, our experienced FA qualified coaches will bring the game to life.  Small class sizes and inventive, game orientated coaching sessions ensure all children have the maximum amount of time on the ball.  So whether your child is the next Pele or just wants somewhere to run around and have fun on the weekends, Saturday Soccer will help give them a love of football that will stay with them into adulthood.  Our mission is to give the game back to the children and to put the fun back into football.

Session Time: 9:15am – 10:15am

Price: £31.00 (price for 5 week course*)

A gentle one-hour course filled with lots of fun and exciting football games that are designed to introduce the basic principles of dribbling, passing and shooting to children with no previous experience.  Upon starting, children will go into the first of the mini groups and coaches will assume no previous knowledge of the game.  A typical session will include 45 minutes of conceptual football games designed to catch the imagination of young children (Shark Attack, How Long Left Ref? Stuck in the Football Mud, Traffic Lights etc) and then for the final 15 minutes children will play in a mini shooting/tackling game we call ‘The Numbers Game’

Two hours of lively instruction for children who have either outgrown Mini Soccer or for beginners who want to take part in a longer course.  During the first hour, the coaches teach the children skills through fun games that build on what they may have learnt in Mini Soccer.  Then after a short break, supervised mini matches take place with a tournament at the end of the course.

Session Time: 10:30am – 12.30pm

Price: £47.00 (price for 5 week course*)

Two hours.  This course is for those who are either beginners or intermediate as there are 5 separate groups and children are organised according to friendship and experience.  Each week coaches focus on teaching a different skill for 1 hour and 15 minutes (turning, dribbling, shooting, passing, heading etc).  After a short lunch break children then pick teams and take part in 6 or 7-a-side matches.



Session Time: 9am – 10:45am + 11am-12.45pm

Price: £47.00 (price for 5 week course*)

This course is 1 hour and 45 mins in length.  It is aimed at children who have a bit more footballing experience as the focus is on practising more advanced skills (passing and moving, volleying, shooting from distance, long passes  etc) and developing team related match play in 9-a-side matches.  A typical session in Juniors Plus will include 1 hour and 10 minutes of drills and advanced football games followed by a short break and a 30 minute match or a mini tournament in mini soccer goals.

5WAYS ADVANCED (age 11-14)

Session Time:  1 hour 45 mins between 9:00am – 12.45pm – Start times vary so please contact us so we can discuss the right group for your child.

Price: £47.00 (price for a 5 week course)

5 Ways Advanced provides a platform for continued learning in football. It is the natural progression for players who have graduated from 7-a-side mini soccer or have been attending Saturday Soccer School. The goal of 5Ways Academy is to supply older youth players with a smooth transition between playing 9-a-side and the 11-a-side game. All of our coaches are FA qualified and the sessions are overseen by our experienced  Academy Director, Rob Maynard.

Details: These sessions are designed for children who are no longer eligible to play 7-a-side mini soccer and are focused on teaching the skills needed to prosper in the 9-a-side and 11-a-side game.  The sessions will be fun and varied and will focus on helping children further develop their understanding and reading of the game, improve their technique and progress into their teens with all the skills needed to become excellent youth players.  Groups will be separated according to experience and ability so we can provide the correct level of coaching to match your child’s skill level and aspirations.

*Please Note: The prices stated above are for a 5 week course, from time to time throughout the season we run longer courses – on these courses the price will be increased pro-rata to reflect the extra sessions – please see the Course Prices tab for full details..
