Courses are available for children aged 3-14 to improve and develop their football skills under the guidance of ECFC’s UEFA qualified coaches and run throughout the year.
The three courses, delivered by ECFC’s Football in the Community Trust, all start with ball familiarisation before moving on to the technical aspects of the game including shooting, dribbling, passing, heading and small sided games.
Tiny Tots, for 3-6 year olds, runs from 10.00 – 11.00am on Saturdays at Southbrook College, Exeter, Exmouth College, and Lords Meadow Playing Fields, Crediton, for little learners to start with basic ball mastery and take part in small team games to develop their skills.
New this summer is the Twilight Tots course, which is running at Southbrook College in Exeter from 4.30 – 5.30pm on Tuesdays, and at Bicton College from 4.30 – 5.30pm on Wednesdays. Twilight Tots focuses on the development of fine motor skills and the fundamentals of movement, as well as ball mastery and small sided games.
For older players aged 7-14, Skills Centres are being run at St James High School, Exeter and Okehampton Community College on Monday evenings from 6.00 – 7.00pm, which as well as basic ball familiarisation will incorporate more advanced technical skills.
Jamie Vittles, Community Trust Manager for Exeter City FC’s Football in the Community Trust said: “Our weekly coaching sessions are perfect for boys and girls who want to improve their football skills in a fun, professional environment. The courses run year round and you can join at any time – we’re currently offering a free taster session to all new players, so why not come and have a go and see if you like it!”
Exeter City FC’s football coaching sessions are delivered by fully qualified coaches with emergency first aid training and CRB qualifications.
