COACHING BREAK – 28th August to September 4th 2016
September Registration: To help us improve and progress effectively we will be operating a new course payment/registration system to help us maintain an effective service.
Due to the ever increasing demand at our development centres across Hertfordshire and Essex and with the majority of our clubs being at their maximum capacity, as from September we will be switching from the "6-week courses" to "Term-Time courses".
During the School holidays we will operate the Pay-as-you-play system before the following school term starts again.
New Enrolling Procedure:
The Course fee entitles you to attend number of sessions over the autumn school term from Week 1 (5th September to 11th September) to Week 7 (17th September to 23rd October).
For example: selecting "Week 1" will register your Soccerkid for the full Autumn term containing 6 sessions ...
Should you wish to enrol from "Week 3" (19th Sep), your child will be registered for 3 sessions leading up to the end of term which finishes on the 23rd Oct (Price is automatically adjusted accordingly) ... Note the coaching break during week 4, where no sessions will take place.
Note: Soccerkidz with outstanding sessions will have them rolled over to the Autumn season but will need to re-enrol on the relevant week once sessions have expired.
Multi Venue Policy: All Soccer Kids are entitled to participate in any of our local venues operating throughout the week.

Message from Director: Coach Ben
“We are now approaching our 3rd year of Coaching and I am extremely thankful and appreciative of the support received from many of the parents over this time … I have the utmost passion and desire to continue on the quest to establish the brand of SK Sports Academy into becoming one of the best Child development academies in the country. We take pride in making positive impacts on our Soccerkidz lives, offering the children as much opportunity to progress towards elite performance and to help all children with their confidence and physical development.
Our Football Academy has been noticed by professional clubs such as Colchester United, of which 3 of our Soccerkidz now train on a regular basis in their development squad ... More recently Chelsea FC’s talent identification scout has shown his interest in the academies coaching structure by attending this months SK Super Cup and will be returning for the following Super Cups … There is also interest from another Premier League development academy however details cannot be disclosed at this point.
Also, we successfully delivered our first ever summer sports camp this year at Kingsmoor School during the last week of July and we will continue to run sport camps every school holidays from now on, so keep an eye on the website for booking information during these times … Check out the Summer Camp highlight video below!
As the Autumn season approaches the need to change to term time payments is needed. This will help our us make the registration procedure less confusing for the parents and admin alike.
Lastly, to financially aid the Academies progression I have been searching far and wide to find a relevant sport related sponsor to help us improve and upgrade our services for the children in regards to Football kits, Equipment, Facility upgrades and coaching staff however I was only offered deals from building companies which was deemed unsuitable by our administrators. However, after researching similar coaching services and their cost of coaching, SK Sports Academy is arguably better priced in comparison to others locally and nationally.
I hope that all our Soccerkidz and parents are happy with the service we are providing and that you are looking forward to the future just as much enjoying the present!

We are now approaching our first outdoors coaching sessions of 2015 in all venues.... We have made sure that there are back-up indoor facilities in close proximity to our designated playing area in-case of heavy rain or unsuitable weather conditions....notification of any changes will be available up to an hour before the start of coaching, so please check our Facebook page or Website prior to attending if you are in any doubt.
As a result of the switch back outside we are able to help course affordability by offering discounts and by reverting back to our summer Course Fee structure of "6 sessions, barre 1 method".... This allows parents/kids a week out from their course without losing a session.
