Foundation Developing Football Stars of the Future!
You’re never too young to develop a passion for the beautiful game. Children as young as three are being helped to develop their skills on the ball thanks to a unique programme delivered by AFC Fylde Community Foundation.
The charitable arm of AFC Fylde has been running its highly successful Football Development Centre at Mill Farm for more than 18 months and it’s proving a huge hit with local youngsters.
Girls and boys between the age of 3-12 years take part in high-quality sessions delivered by FA and UEFA qualified coaches in a learning environment ideal for developing and growing their love of the game.
Individual, group and team challenges encourage the young players to improve their technique, individuality, communication skills, physicality, decision making and tactical understanding of the sport while having fun at the same time.
The Football Development sessions are incredibly popular with an ever-increasing number of children signing up. Now the Foundation wants to build on that success by encouraging more local youngsters to get involved.
The football development sessions take place at the impressive Fylde Sports and Education Centre every Tuesday evening. The first session, specifically geared towards 3-6-year-olds, is held between 5pm-5.45pm. This is followed at 6pm by a one-hour session for 7-12-year-olds.
Anyone who would like to get involved should contact AFC Fylde Community Foundation Football Development Lead, Dan Cookson on 01772 598855 or by email at: firstname.lastname@example.org
Foundation Director Tom Hutton said: “The Development Centre is a fantastic programme and something we’re all incredibly proud of.
“The sessions take place in a professional, safe and progressive environment in which the children can meet new friends, learn new skills and develop their knowledge of the game.
“We are always looking to welcome new children to take part. Who knows, we could be helping to develop one of the footballing stars of the future!”
