Advanced Coaching Centre ‘Open Trial’

We have a fantastic opportunity for players to attend an ‘Open Trial’ for our Advanced Coaching Centre, which takes place at Goals Soccer Centre in Southampton on a Tuesday evening.

This Centre offers players aged between 6-13 the opportunity to improve, enhance and hone their on-field skills and confidence. Our team of outstanding coaches encourage players to be more active and help them develop to be the best football player they can possibly be. Alongside practical sessions we also encourage that all-important ‘soft’ social elements of fun, gaining confidence and progressing to the next level of our player progression pathway.

This ‘open trial’ is only for players aged 6, 8, 12 and 13 years of age, please see below the details for the trial;

The sessions at the Centre are delivered by experienced and UEFA/FA qualified coaches and will follow a similar curriculum to the one used in the world renowned Southampton FC Academy. Each session will encompass the FA Four Corner Model and will focus on a Technical and Tactical theme, encouraging players to work on different techniques and apply them into a range of tactical situation, helping them to develop and improve game understanding.

The aim of the Advanced Coaching Centre is to support and help develop players to be the best football player they possibly can be. The centre has been designed to take place during the week to compliment the work the coaches/managers at your club do with your players, allowing them to continue to play in games with your teams and weekends and giving them a potential progression pathway into the academy or girls RTC if they show the potential, ability level and if the opportunity arises.

The Advanced Coaching Centre is strictly invitation only and players are normally recommended to attend the centre by Saints Foundation coaches, however the ‘open trial’ is available for anyone to book on to showcase their talent this May Half Term. One player who has attended our Advanced Coaching Centre has recently been signed by Southampton FC Academy, we also have 2 players who have attended the Centre start at Southampton FC Academy Development Centres.

There is a limit of 12 spaces per age group for the trial so to avoid disappointment we advise you to book at the earliest point, bookings are based on a first come and first served basis and you will be able to book on from 5.00pm on Tuesday 16th May 2017. There is a £2.50 registration fee to book a place and payment must be made using the following link: Following the ‘Open Trial’ you will be contacted shortly after to either invite you to attend the Advanced Coaching Centre for the rest of the term (until July 2017) or players will recommend to another Saints Foundation programme to attend and to develop their skills and performance further.
