We Make Footballers Harlesden is one of London’s leading football coaching academies for children aged between 4 and 12 years old.

Our academy has fully qualified FA coaches and the focus is on playing football in a fun and safe environment. We cater for all abilities, helping beginners to master the basics and grow in confidence and the more advanced to fine-tune their games.

Our sessions are held indoors in amazing top quality sports halls during the colder months and outdoors during the Spring/Summer.

For those hoping to make it into a professional academy, We Make Footballers Harlesden can even help with that. Some of our coaches have links with professional clubs and if a player is good enough, they can recommend they go forward for a trial. If a player isn’t quite at that level yet, then the coaches can help to work on the areas that need improvement to get them there. Some players will just enjoy our football session, make friends and have fun alongside developing their football.

Why do Children & Parents in Harlesden Love our Training?

Improved football technique

We break down the football fundamentals in a simple and engaging way. Then, our 1-on-1 drills give your child the time to reinforce what they've learnt at their own pace.

Teammates to mates

We only have 10 children per coach to ensure high quality training and the chance for your child to build friendships. We also have strict anti-bullying policies so they will always feel safe.

Healthy children are happier children

Exercise is best when it doesn't feel like exercise. Our weekly football training and holiday development camps are fun, but also boost your child's fitness, speed, movement, and agility too.

A real brain booster (that's smart!)

It's not just physical and social skills, our unique sessions help with cognitive function too. You will see your child develop better concentration, learning, listening, and decision-making skills week after week.

We Make Footballers is fantastic. Our daughter has enjoyed many hours of football training on Saturday mornings and in the holidays. What a great way to motivate kids with sport, teach them to win, to lose, to support others and to strive to be the best they can.

Frequently asked questions

Are you looking for a football training academy to partner with?

How it works: We provide players and teams for local grassroot teams to compete at a competitive grassroots level. The partnered club recommend WMF to players who aren’t quite ready to play at a grassroots level side (players may be too young or new to football).

What safety procedures are in place and are your coaches DBS checked?

All of our coaches are fully DBS checked and at least one member of staff on site will be first aid trained.

How do I get my child in shape for football?

Getting your child into shape for football involves a combination of physical activity, skill development and a balanced diet. Here are some steps you can take to help prepare your child for football: encourage your child to take part in activities that can improve cardiovascular endurance, such as running, cycling or swimming. To be a successful football player, a child will need to work on their speed, agility and endurance. Encourage your child to eat a balanced diet and drink plenty of water. It's also important for your child to rest and recover between exercise. You could take your child to take part in local football training sessions and speak to the coach about what they think your child needs to develop. Your may also want to consider shifting the language from 'getting your child into shape' to 'helping your child lead an active and healthy lifestyle'. Football can be a great vehicle to help make this change.

When should girls start playing football?

Girls can start playing football at the same age as boys, typically around 4 or 5 years old. There is no specific age restriction or limitation based on gender when it comes to playing football. Football is a sport that can be enjoyed by both girls and boys and now there are increasing opportunities for girls to participate in football training and football matches where they can meet new friends, develop their football skills and find a love for the game. It is important to find a football environment which is inclusive and supportive, where girls feel welcomed and encouraged to participate in football.
