                                                Soccerkidz Ltd Announcement:

Please read if you are involved or interested in our club as this update has important development information.

 

Summer Season Summery: 

Since Soccerkidz started 9 months ago we have shown great developments in all our clubs. We would like to say a few thank-you's and explain to everyone the future plans for our club.

Director of Soccerkidz Ltd, Coach Ben.......

"I started Soccerkidz Ltd back in March at the HECCSPORT club in Sawbridgeworth Town off the back of nine months coaching in thirteen states. Prior to that I lived in Southampton where I studied Football for 4 years, as a Degree.......I know, football as a Degree!

Due to the experiences I have gained over the years working and studying the "field of football", I developed an idea/vision which is embodied in Soccerkidz Ltd. My aim when I started the company was/is....To have a major impact on child development through football, and to make a career out of something I love doing. I have the desire to improve upon current existing child development concepts through my own coaching ability and theories. 

A huge "THANKYOU" goes out to all the parents for placing their trust and judgement in my hands regarding the current and future development of their children.....as of yet I have not had one parent advise me to do it differently, which is good feedback in my opinion :)

 

Club Summary

Here's a brief summary of how we have grown as a club since May 2014 from when we ran just one session a week......now we run four sessions a week, soon to be six in the new year. #SoccerkidzSaturday started with just four to six kids for the first three or four weeks, we cancelled the older Bears session due to lack of players and merged them into one group.... from then on weekly participation rates grew to a now average of 20 to 25 children.

#SoccerkidzSunday was our next venue to open in August, starting out at the GPCA community centre, later to move indoor (October) into the amazing Passmores Academy. Our team started out with six to eight regulars for a month or so, now we have  20 to 25 regular participants.

The last venue we opened was in September at the Mark Hall Sports Centre for our #SoccerkidzTuesday club. Our open day saw 20+ participants! we are currently fluctuating in players as we continue to maintain an average of around seven children a week and have a short term game plan to get this club fully rocking and rolling in 2015. Tuesdays has proven to be a good starting point to introduce the youngsters into football due to the lower volume of children, in hand giving them more contact time with our coaches.

Due to how our club has developed over this time there has been an increasing demand for parents and volunteers to help out on a number of different levels including, photography, marketing, events, birthdays, coaching...the list goes on. We would like to thank everyone that has helped us grow and sustain the professional standards our club brand have set and represents.

Lastly, I'd like to inform everyone that the coaching team is expanding and we are preparing the development soccer structure for the 2015/16 footballing calendar!

#SoccerKidzTuesdays (Birthday: September 17th 2014)

Our Tuesday venue is currently the shortest running club of the our three. We kicked off August In style with record numbers in the first session. It took us a few weeks before we got the correct times and day that suited everyone best.....as for the first few weeks we was battling with dance club next door which effected our coaching due to the noise levels in the hall.

Since the move from Wednesday to Tuesday our numbers slowly grew from week to week. Now we have set good foundations to build upon in the coming months of 2015....so a big congratulations to everyone involved in this club and we are all looking forward to growing as a team.

NEW! #SoccerKidzFriday (Birthday: January 16th 2015)

Soccerkidz would like to also announce a new team forming in Writtle, Chelmsford for 2015.

As mentioned before from previous experience we will start by running one session for both Cubs and Bears teams (2 to 6 years). Once we have established ourselves and increased in participants, we will then split the two age groups into their respected age specific teams.

We have also set up a promotion day inside Writtle's Junior school the week prior to the open day of the season. This will give us the chance to meet and  invite children along to our first session for a free taster, aiming to sign up a few stars of the future.

Our main goal with this club is to bring the education community closer together, which will be represented through our newly forming team. We plan on creating a link between college and primary school, offering coaches studying sports at the college to enhance their future employ-ability and  gain crucial experience whilst working with the team. 

Venue: Writtle College, Sports Hall

Day: Friday 16th Jan

Time: 16:15-15:05

#SoccerKidzSaturdays (Birthday: May 24th 2014)

This is our longest running team spanning back to when the club was founded. As a result, this club is currently ahead of our other teams in regard to their development and skill levels. This is a direct result of their prolonged contact time with our team of coaches and it won't be too long before the Bears are ready to play in competitive 5 v 5 game play.

We would like to say a big thank you to Sawbridgeworth Town Fc for using their facilities over the summer. STFC has provided us with a platform to build upon the foundations that we have set, SoccerKidz Ltd now works in partnership with STFC with the mutual aim of increasing participation at grass roots level and enhancing child development through football in the local community.

We have now embarked on a new chapter with Leventhorpe Sports Centre and we hope to make lasting connections with the community. As from the 22nd of November our #SoccerkidzSaturday Sessions will run throughout the winter at the times featured below. 

#SoccerkidzSaturdays @ Leventhorpe Sports Complex

#SoccerKidzSundays (Birthday: August 10th 2014)

This club was our second venue to open back in August at the GPCA Community Centre. due to having such a fantastic summer in regard to weather we was able to train outside on the grass for most of the weeks. we then moved into Passmores Academy in October, this saw participation rates shoot through the roof. from 7 to 10 players to 20 to 30 regular Soccerkidz a week. we were extremely lucky to have the massive sports hall all for us every week and this has accommodated our high participation rates. Each week we are building upon previous weeks in regard to the coaching and its clear to see the development results throughout the group in every child.

#SoccerkidzSundays @ Passmores Academy

- CUBS & BEARS from 09:00-09:50

(2 years to 6 years)

(NOTE: there have been a handful of "Bears" that have graduated to our #SoccerkidzSaturday session for more demanding coaching games/drill/activities.)

Now that the demand is high we have come up with a simple pricing method so that all of us don't get confused or get our wires crossed. All courses are entitled to take advantage of our Multi Venue Policy, meaning you can come to any of our venues at anytime.

Course Fee: £38 for 6 sessions - must be used within 6 weeks

Round Up

2014 has been a great year for us in regards to the foundations we have set but that is just the start, all of the team are excited for the future prospects including our Mascot Bruce the Bear heading into the new year.  Many parents have asked whether '"we do"  or "are we going to do'" coaching for children above our current age threshold of six years old.......the answer to this question is YES and this is evident in our progression model. HOWEVER.....as we are a new club we do not want to run the risk of growing too quickly as this may have a negative impact on the current group of kids as our focus is primarily on the development of children between 2 to 6 years at this stage.

Thank you to everyone for your Support, have a great holiday and we'll see you soon! Keep your eyes on our website for discount offers regarding course fee's and kit prices over January.
