Medway Academy

Professional footballers start here

Practice makes permanent. Our weekly group training is a great foundation for players wanting to move into local grassroots clubs or professional academies. We’ve had over 200 players signed professionally so far.

The weather won’t stop us

We have indoor and outdoor fields so your child is always comfortable. We focus on technique in small spaces during winter, so they can experiment on larger fields in summer.

Sign up for a block - not the whole year

We plan a thorough one year syllabus, but that doesn’t mean you need to commit to the whole year at once. We keep our weekly group training flexible with block session arrangements too.

Each week is different. A typical block booking includes this:

Age Appropriate Training

Training is tailored to each child's age and ability level. We want to inspire children to love the game. We want them to push their parents to bring them to football! For our older players and more talented players, we aim to challenge them without harming their confidence.

1/5

4 skills your child will learn:

Technical

We teach your child the core fundamentals, such as passing or shooting, to help them become more technically-gifted footballers. We then reinforce it with 1-on-1 practice against another player with the same ability to boost decision-making alongside technique.

Social

We keep our sessions to 10 children per coach. This guarantees that your child gets the attention they deserve and the coaching they’re after. It also makes it easier to build everlasting friendships for children who find large group situations challenging.

Physical

Our sessions are about getting your child moving and physically strong. These sessions help build fundamental physical skills that the child can use as they grow older or in other sports. Not only does it help with physical fitness, but with speed and agility too.

Psychological

Our unique sessions also help with cognitive function. You will see your child develop better concentration, learning, listening, and decision-making skills week after week.

My 7 year old son Ray has really enjoyed his classes with Frazer and the team. Good skills, good fun and plenty of learning taking place.

Frequently asked questions

What is the youngest age you can start training from?

The youngest age you can start training from is the age of 4 (although some children start at 3 and a half). However we tend to advise parents to try a class first, as it can be more challenging than other classes aimed at children between 2-3 years old.

 

Do you give any nutritional advice to children?

Although we don’t give personalised nutritional advice to each individual player per se, we are looking into the possibilities of implementing this is the future. We do offer general healthy lifestyle and nutritional tips on our Instagram page for young players to have a look at.

Does your training only run during term time?

Yes, our training runs parallel to the school term time in your area. To be sure about when the sessions are running, log into your Parent Area and view your child’s bookings to view the training dates they are to attend. 

If you want something to do during the holidays, visit our Holiday Camp page to see what camps are available in your area.

How does my child get a trial with a professional club?

We Make Footballers have strong links with professional academies, putting forward children who have been excelling in their sessions with us. If your child has been attending our weekly training, holiday camps and taking part in regular 1-2-1 sessions for a while they will likely have reached a level where they are able to trial at a professional club. Your child’s academy manager will be the best person to speak to with regard to their progress and how far they are from an academy trial.

How does my child join a team?

We Make Footballers is partnered with many local clubs and have agreements in place to provide players and teams starting from Under 7 all the way up to Under 13. Local grassroots teams start looking for children at the Under 6 age group (School Year 1). For this reason we hold trials for Under 6 players who attend our weekly training for scouts from local teams to have a look at. From there they select the children they would like for their teams in the new season. If your child has been training with us for a while, developing well and registers an interest in playing competitive football, we will help them to join a team.

Are your coaches DBS checked?

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

Do you offer anything other than weekly training?

Yes absolutely! We hold regular holiday camps – so when your child doesn’t have weekly training during the school holidays, they can come along to our all day football camps for hours of fun and activities. We also host amazing football birthday parties with a Zorb Ball option available. And if you think your child could do with that bit of extra help to get them to the next level with their football, we offer 1-2-1 sessions where your child can get personal training with one of our experienced coaches.
