Football Friendship Fun

The Academy's Football.Friendship.Fun. programme is specially designed to meet the needs of children with autism. It incorporates a mixture of coach-led and child-initiated learning to teach soccer skills.

Our training curriculum helps your child to improve their motor skills, endurance, strength, coordination, and physical integration. Training also focuses on building social skills and communication between players.

This programme differs from the usual training in that

      The teaching pace is slower

      Visuals and visual schedules are used to create predictability

      Coaches demonstrate and give step by step instructions using clear, simple language with lots of positive feedback and constructive support

      There is a small coach to player ratio

These strategies create a fun and safe environment for children with autism to learn, play and enjoy the sport!
