Football 1st Academy

Welcome to Football 1st Academy………

The aim of Football 1st Academy is to give players of all abilities the chance to take their game to the next level. The academy aims to give players the opportunity to improve their existing skills and techniques as well as introducing new ones, along with improving their knowledge and understanding of the game of football.
Football 1st Academy coaches understand that players learn in different ways and develop at different stages and they are trained to deal with all levels of ability and different personalities to ensure that all players can reach their maximum potential.
All activities are structured and aimed at the specific age of the participant. Activities will be challenging but achievable, ensuring that each individual leaves with raised self esteem, better knowledge, greater experience and having made improvement in their overall game as well as having fun and enjoyment.
