The OUFC Future Talent Hubs are back!
Future Talent provides a fun, player-centred environment in which young people will be encouraged to be creative and inventive in their football development. The programme offers a way to improve technical skills for those new to football, as well as to members of competitive grassroots or school teams.
Weekly sessions focus on improving the ability of each player in areas such as ball mastery, passing, dribbling, turning & shooting. The key principles of attacking, defending and reading the game are developed through 1v1, 2v2 and small-sided games.
The sessions are run by Oxford United’s experienced and fully qualified coaching staff, and every child will receive a progress report after completing the 12-week programme. Players progressing well may be given the opportunity to trial for the Emerging Talent programme!
Courses will run on various days and times in Oxford, Witney and Bicester
Saturday morning Soccer Tots
Oxford United’s Soccer Tots is the perfect way to ignite an enthusiasm for sport that will stay with your child for life.
Our coaching staff deliver programmes in nursery and primary schools across Oxfordshire. They are qualified not only in football coaching, but in teaching interventions including Real PE, which focuses on the development of agility, balance and coordination, healthy competition and cooperative learning.
Using football as a medium we teach basic movement patterns, balance and motor coordination, and include activities to support literacy and numeracy. Most importantly, we ensure that physical activity is fun.
Our Soccer Tots courses are centred around helping your children to develop first and foremost as people, and then as sports enthusiasts!
NEW Futsal programmes
Futsal is a great way for children and young people to be introduced to football or develop their skills.
It is played five-a-side on small basketball-sized indoor courts, with a smaller, heavier ball that does not bounce. The ball tends to stick to the foot, helping the child to feel more control and to build confidence.
Players learn to control the ball in tight areas and shoot from all angles. Name any Brazilian football star and he will have played Futsal!
Oxford United’s courses provide a fun, child-centred environment in which young people will be encouraged to be creative and inventive in their development. They are run by Oxford United’s experienced and fully qualified coaching staff.
Courses will run weekly at The Oxford Academy. Every child will receive a progress report after completing the programme.
