Freestyle Academy

with YouTube superstar freestyler Gavin Mckinney

Master your skills, earn your stripes.

In partnership with renowned freestyler Gavin Mckinney, we're introducing the UK's first structured 5 week freestyle coaching programme, designed to teach 4 - 12 year olds the fundamentals of freestyle football.

Each week participants in the Freestyle Academy will be presented with a new theme via exclusive video tutorials by YouTube superstar Gavin. Then, the future stars will make their way on to the pitch where our expert CRB checked coaches will guide them through each skill which comprises that particular week's theme. Each skill will have basic and advanced variants, with the Academy placing emphasis on technique and practice in order to master each skill and become recognised as a freestyle star.

Not only is the Freestyle Academy perfect for children's fitness and the development of their football skills, but it's a barrel load of fun too!

This new programme will take place from March 25 at participating clubs. What's more, whilst the action is going on parents can relax with a fresh Lavazza coffee, free wi-fi, and BT Sport in our clubhouses.

Places are limited, so make sure you book your place in advance. Download and print out the enrolment form and bring it with you to the first session.
