JA Centre of Excellence is fully committed in developing inventive football players with excellent decision making skills. 

Kids Match With premier league standard facilities and with coaches holding UEFA A and B License’s we can maximize the opportunity for all players to help further their individual development.

With our unique style of coaching our sessions are challenging, educational, realistic and enjoyable. We believe placing the children in a non-pressured environment will help them to fulfill their potential.

For players aged 6-12 we focus on the key technical aspects the game presents.

Once children become 13 there is a transition to 11v11, which provides new challenges for players. Here at the JA Resorts & Hotels we support this transition with consideration and understanding. To help aid this all training sessions are relevant to the game by delivering functional practices, phases of play and 11v11 coaching sessions. Talented players maybe able to deal with the demands of the transition form small sided games to 11v11 technically, but it is the tactical development and individual game understanding, which is the priority. Players will develop certain positional preferences meaning they will see the relevance and value of our different types of practices.

Every player registered receives Umbro shirt, shorts, socks, bag, shin pads, water bottle, sweat band and skill ball.

25% sibling discount is available.
