Summer Camp 2016

Two down – one to go!

After two weeks in the glorious sunshine, many of our young players spent their summer holidays having the time of their life. With many familiar faces returning, we have also gained interest from new player and maintained strong numbers all summer.

Because of this – not only do we always provide coaches with the highest qualifications, but we have provided a great coach to player ratio all summer!

Week two also brought the experience of taking part in a photo shoot. We quickly realised that not only did we have some future football players on our hands, but some professional models as well.

We would all like to take this chance to send a big thank you to Carmel Jane Photography. Not only did they provide us with some great photos of the highest quality, but they also made it enjoyable for all children and staff involved.

Our new balls, bibs and t-shirts enhanced the professional feel that we bring to camps. There was a great vibe around the camp during the photos and that carried on throughout the week.

If you are interested in attending our final camp of the summer (22nd-24th August), please contact us via the tab above.

The camp was based around the European Championships that were fast approaching. With the daily quiz and football tournament, all players left the camp knowing who would be taking part in the Championships and most importantly why Messi of Argentina would not be taking part!

Mini Kickers Easter 2016 Camp

Our Mini Kickers morning class also proved to be extremely popular. The players between the ages of 4 – 6 years old arrived at 9.30am and left at 12pm.

At the end of the week, all players received a signed certificate. Players who impressed throughout the week, also won prizes as well as the special – young player of the week award.

Advanced players from the age of six, were invited to stay on the course after 12pm and join the older players during their world cup games. Two were even moved into the 7 – 8 age group during the morning sessions due to their advanced skills.

Players from the age of six stayed with us from 9.30am – 3.30pm. They were issued a coloured bib throughout the day which allowed them to accumulate points for their world cup teams throughout the day.

Each day was themed based which allowed the players a chance to develop as an all round player. It also encouraged every player to try different positions during their world cup games as they felt confident in many areas of the pitch.

EFC’s Mini Kickers

Essex Football Coaching is delighted to announce that we are offering football classes for 18 month-5 year olds.

Where and when?

Sessions are held on Saturday mornings at Shenfield High School. We are able to offer a top- of-the-range facility with a fantastic viewing gallery for the parents to watch their children.  Each class lasts 45 minutes between 9.30 am – 12pm. This allows us to offer your child the appropriate class for their age and ability.

18 – 30 months

Parents of toddlers who are aged 18-30 months are asked to stay with their child throughout the entire class. The session is based around allowing the toddler to take on a very simple task in their own time and at their own pace.

2-3 year olds

Parents of 2– 3 year olds are also required to stay in the sports hall with their child. This allows the coach to manage behaviour and aid the motor skills of each child by informing their parents of the task ahead. This allows for each child to progress at their own pace.

3-4 year olds

3 – 4 year olds take part in activities that are individually tailored. These classes are designed and based around colours, numbers and aid the children’s developing listening skills. Not only do the children improve their basic every-day skills, but they learn new skills through sport.

4 years +

Once they have reached the highest class of Mini-Kickers, the class is taught more advanced skills and more individual team competitions are involved. This prepares the boys and girls for when they graduate and progress to a youth team at Hutton FC.

Where do they go after Mini-Kickers?

Working in partnership with Hutton FC, our programme provides a route into youth football in partnership with one of the biggest football clubs in Essex. The club also trains at Shenfield High School on a Saturday but on the 3G Astroturf. To help the children adapt to the different environment, we allow for our coaches to help with the transition by providing a few taster sessions on the 3G, before the children to advance into youth football.
