For our S4K football groups, this meant that our classes were due to be held outside on the all weather pitch. Unfortunately, this space is now no longer available due to the sheer number of alumni attending and the grass pitch that has been offered as an alternative would be too wet for our children. For this reason, we will be moving our classes to the St John Beaumont Prepartory School in Old Windsor (SL4 2JN), where the classes will take place in the furthest section of the Sports Hall. The class times will remain the same - S4K Tots (9-9.45am), S4K Kickers 1 (9.50-10.35am), S4K Kickers 2 (10.40-11.25am) and S4K Strikers (11.30-12.30pm). The S4K Academy (12.30-1.30pm) will take place outside on the top pitches (directions below).
To find us, you can park your car in the car park by the tennis courts. The sports centre is a short walk up the hill towards the main school building and then follow the road around to the left. The sports centre has glass automatic doors, but we gain access through the side door to the left of the building. For S4K Academy classes take place on the top field in all weather, so studs and shin pads are required. There is a path that leads up to this area through the back of the car park and the woods. The path will take you down hill and then around to the left. The path then bears around and up to the right before opening out onto the playing field pavilion. Please be aware that this walk can take 5-7 minutes.
Our classes will return to Royal Holloway from Saturday 16th January and we look forward to seeing everyone tomorrow!
We held our Annual Awards Ceremony for our Sport4Kids Football Club on Sunday to honour all of the children, supporters and coaches who have been involved in a fantastic year of development. Hosted by S4Ks answer to Ant and Dec, Co-Founder, Dr Mark Gould, and our Head of Football Club, Adam Beckett, our teams were presented with awards including Top Goal Scorer, Most Consistent Player and Best Passer as well as Sport4Kids' unique Skills Master and S4K Way awards for those who attempted the most skills during the season and epitomised the passing football philosophy of our club.
The new Sport4Kids Development Centre at Cobham and Leatherhead will have two of our finest coaches at the helm, as they run the S4K Tots (age 18 months to 3 years), Kickers (age 3 to 5) and Strikers (age 5 to 7) sessions every Saturday morning.
Coach Matt Alder and Coach Nigel Parkes-Davis have been support coaches at the hugely successful Surbiton classes, under the stewardship of Area Manager Marcus Doyle. They’ve developed a great understanding with the parents and children there, completing all the training sessions along the way dedicated to getting the best from our team.
Both guys are really excited to be getting under way at their own venue, to meeting new families and starting them off on the Player Pathway road. They have seen the value of the system at other venues, and can’t wait to get started.
So, come along and join them for a free taster session!
The new Sport4Kids Development Centre at Cobham and Leatherhead will run classes for the our S4K Tots (18 months to 3 years), S4K Kickers (3 to 5 years) and S4K Strikers (5 to 7 years) on Saturday mornings.
Our vision is to produce skilled players, who excel at listening to coaches instructions and improving their own ability, to join the S4K Football Club. With the assistance of parents, we run age group teams in Leagues in Surrey and Berkshire, using the game management techniques taught in the Academy sessions to help them during matches.
Our Striker league also has players from different Development Centres meeting in one- off friendly matches, allowing us to see how players are progressing across the S4K network.
This constant desire to see our players evolve is assisted by Sport4Kids very own Player Pathway, so by the time our children have completed the full programme, they are rounded, skilful individuals, ready to take on other players and show what they have learnt.
Does this sound like a framework you want your child to become a part of? Then come along and join us for a free taster session! Click HERE to book today.
