Q.  Why do I need personal soccer training and why us?

  1.  To enable you to benefit from individual, professional coaching which will take your game to new levels. With over 25 years coaching and playing experience and the ability to work with players of all ages and abilities.

Q.  How can I get the best out of my sessions?

A.  By turning up on time and by communicating with your coach. Before you attend your first session you will be either asked to describe your game to the coach, or have been assessed by him/her. This means that your personal plan is in place right from the start. We want the player to build confidence so they can take what they learn in the 1-1 sessions into the game.

Q.  What happens if I cannot attend my session?

  1.  It is important to arrive on time for your scheduled sessions. If you are unable to attend for any reason you must give your coach at least 24 hours notice. If you cancel your session less than 24 hours before it is due to start will, the full session fee will still need to be paid.

Feedback, don’t just take our word….

A parent of a 11 year old grassroots boys club player.

“In just a few sessions of 1-1 coaching, Luca has learned so much and developed new techniques that he could take away and put into practise during games.  We didn’t expect him to develop his skills and thought process so quickly . Not only have the these sessions brought him on massively , they have also improved his confidence and most of all he really enjoys them which is key to us as parents and to him.  The Soccer20 Team has kept us informed all the way through Luca’s progress and had a genuine desire to learn about the player and the Soccer20skills team tailors the sessions to fit their needs . We hope to continue with these session and look forward to seeing Luca develop even more”

A parent of a 9 year old grassroots boys club player

Thanks to Soccer 20 after 6 weeks of 1 to 1 sessions, my son’s confidence has excelled in every aspect of the game. Making him from a hesitant, shy player to now bursting with energy, he looks like a different player in matches. His confidence is shining through not just in matches but in school and when having a kick about with his friends when playing out.

Hi I just wanted to drop you a message to let you know how much Aaron loves the soccer20 sessions and all of the coaches.
He started at the beginning of last year and has made such progress even with the tough year we’ve had. He has just started 121 sessions as he enjoys it so much and is always beaming afterwards and can’t wait for the next one.
We can’t thank you enough for being so professional, encouraging and fun. He is learning so much and we can’t wait to see how much he will continue to progress. 
We would highly recommend both the sessions and the 121s.
Thank you from us all

The individual one-to-one coaching offered by the Soccer20 team is first-class.  In just three sessions I’ve seen my son (aged 8) quickly improve his understanding of different ball control techniques, skills and passing. His confidence on the ball in match situations has increased significantly too.  The sessions are tailored to the individual player’s needs and are age-specific.  Most importantly, they are brilliant fun!  The Soccer20 coaches challenge, support and really encourage the player and it is clear a significant amount of pre-planning goes into each session to really pinpoint the player’s specific areas for development. 
If your child is looking to take their game to the next level I strongly recommended the one-to-one coaching offered by the Soccer20 team.

Private 1-2-1 football coaching offers a fully focused learning, technical environment. The coach can focus solely on the individuals needs rather than a squad of players.

Benefits of using football rebounders.

As our bespoke rebounders have become popular over the last few years, overtaking traditional wall work, at soccer20skills. We have been using these since 2015. The tailored solo training drills the team provide, all players with online access ensures the player gets the best results possible. The bespoke rebounders are custom made and are currently used by grassroots players, academy and professional players at clubs, ex-players, and coaches. In addition, specific sessions have become very popular in aiding the player with a greater understanding of their position and adding online video analysis. Created by S20 a lot of emphasis is on first reactions in RPO (receive, pass, offer) philosophy. Players are challenged in high intensity situations where the speed of their decision making is stretched. The 1-1 sessions are at a high level of repetition based environment.

More testimonials from parents-

Player aged 15..

My son signed up for the Gold package with S20 this summer, looking for some focused coaching and feedback based on his preferred position.  After his first 4 sessions he has absolutely loved the experience and in particular the detailed feedback and advice he has been given by the excellent S20 coaches. The sessions are meticulously prepared and always include varied drills, building on his fundamentals each week and giving him new challenges and techniques to think about between sessions. The S20 coaches are incredibly welcoming and enthusiastic, building a great relationship with him and allowing him to express himself in a safe environment. Their qualified expertise and experience in the game has meant they have been able to identify areas for improvement in both mental and practical aspects of the game. My son is an attacking player, so the sessions have been designed around the key skills he needs to improve and become better when he plays games. Most importantly, my son has had loads of fun and really looks forward to his session each week. He feels like he has improved as a player already and has enjoyed the S20 coaches’ focus on his game and the encouragement that they have given him.  I would highly recommend S20 to parents of any young player who wants some feedback on their game and who wants to improve, irrespective of their level of ability.
