As our Half term October Soccer School comes to an end this week, I’m sure your kids are looking to pursue more football programmes and we have lots of sessions which run throughout the week. But do you know about our Saturday programmes?
Every Saturday morning at the Broadfield Stadium we run Mini Reds, a programme tailored to those little boys and girls under the age of 6 to kick the ball around and learn the basics of football.
Kayleigh Bowers, Football and Sports Development Co-ordinator said, “The sessions compromise of a Warm Up, Ball Skills Section, Parent Participation Section (helping your children with a variety of different controls and techniques), Shooting, Passing or Dribbling Zones, and finally a Match Zone to put together everything that has been learnt into a game! Our FA qualified coaches are experienced in coaching this age group and appreciate the importance of empathy and guidance with younger players, many of whom will be experiencing coaching for the very first time. This session is ultimately about fun, getting the children started on their footballing journey, and enjoying playing football!”
Ultimately, Mini Red sessions are about having fun and getting the children started on their footballing journey, enjoying themselves along the way.
Saturday Soccer Centre delivers sessions to improve their game whilst having fun. These Soccer Centres run for boys and girls age 7 – 12, it’s a fantastic opportunity to develop key skills, both technically and socially within the compound of Crawley Town FC.
Here at the Community Foundation, we want to do all we can to help kids develop and move up through their football journey learning all they can from our fantastic coaching staff.
Both Mini Reds and Saturday Soccer Centres are entry levels into our football Progression Route. Soccer Centres provide progression into our Development and Elite Centres which helps your child boost their skills and climb the progression ladder to bigger teams by focusing on their skills.
Additionally, we run Crawley Town Wildcats, which is a girls-only programme aimed at those aged between 5 – 11 at our 3G. This session takes place every Friday from 5pm – 6pm. In partnership with Sussex FA, the sessions give the girls regular opportunities to play football and take part in an organised setting, where the emphasis is on fun and engagement in a safe environment.
Darren Ford, Head of Community Development said, “The Wildcats sessions take place on a weekly basis, where girls with no or little football experience can have fun engaging with other girls of their age range in sport, try a variety of skills, learn new things and create foundations for lifelong love of sport”.
