Beyond Striker Tots
Striker Tots has linked up with various junior football clubs
in the areas where our sessions are held.
Our coaching sessions give the kids a great head start so
that when they are old enough to join a junior team they have
already developed the basic skills, understand the terminology
and have already started to develop into young footballers.
We currently have a couple of ex-striker tots who are are training with the Leeds United and Manchester City Academies under 6 / under 7 age group.
This generates benefits for the Striker Tots kids who enter
clubs with a great grounding in football which many other
kids don't have at this stage. The clubs & teams who inherit
kids who are often much more advanced than most new starters to
their club, also benefit as they don't need to start from scratch with the Striker Tots and those kids who haven't been to us can learn from them. This helps the whole team develop.
Holiday Soccer Schools
We work along with our junior clubs in providing holiday
soccer schools. These are open to kids from all clubs
and are usually well attended. These courses are open to all
those in year 1 to year 6. Clubs reap the benefits of players
developing their football skills on our 3-5 full day courses
being coached by an ex-professional footballer.
Once our Striker Tots members are old enough to move on to
a club, they can still be involved with us through attending
our holiday soccer schools. It's great to see them back with us and see how far they have come since they started with us, often several years earlier.
