ACFC Play Sessions run alongside school terms, where players will participate in after school, weekly coaching sessions. Our ‘Play’ sessions are inclusive for everybody and help build confidence and belief.

The environment that ACFC coaches create, allows players to stay engaged, feel relaxed and therefore express themselves in a positive manor. ACFC prides itself on engagement with players and parents alike, and welcomes feedback, allowing us to learn and grow. Players who attend ‘Play’ sessions will enjoy the following;

  • Experience the ACFC way
  • Technical and Tactical Support
  • Small Sided Games used throughout Professional Academies
  • Feel comfortable in a fun, positive and engaging environment

Programme Venues, Dates & Times will be released soon. To be notified when they are released, simply fill out our contact form.

ACFC's Advanced Programme is for players aged between 7 and 16. Advanced sessions are designed to challenge players further through the implementation of further tactical knowledge. This programme is invitational whereby players are identified by ACFC Coaches at our various Programmes in Schools, Clubs and our ‘Play’ programme. Advanced sessions aim to take players to the next level in their football journey by giving them detailed technical and tactical support, alongside the mental, lifestyle, physical and emotional factors of the game.

Players are invited to come along and see if they enjoy the environment. This then gives ACFC coaches an understanding of if the player would fit into the group. Should we feel that the player is ready, then this would be discussed with the parents.

We create a fun yet challenging environment, where learning is present, enjoyment is pivotal and high standards are a necessity.
