Our free taster sessions are the ideal way to find out if LPA Academy is a good fit for you.
You can request to join one of our courses as a trial. This includes attending one or two sessions to allow your child to find out what happens during a session and to see if it is something that they’d like to pursue.
Grassroots football can return on March 29th 2021 and we are delighted to be back on the pitch.
To celebrate we are offering FREE coaching sessions at your local venue.
What to expect
We welcome children from the ages of 4 to 16 years old. Advanced and Elite players will participate in a warm-up session followed by structured drills to practice technique before engaging in match play. These sessions are designed to help your child develop physically, tactically and technically.
Fun and development players will enjoy a fun and structured approach to the basics of the game working on drills and skills along with match play in a relaxed and non-pressured environment. We introduce the rules of the game and the principles of sportsmanship and the importance of working with a team to achieve the best outcome – and have fun too!
In the course of the taster session, our trained staff will evaluate your child and direct them to the most appropriate group to enable them to feel comfortable and confident. Sessions last one hour (90 minutes for Elite 11+ players ) and we ask parents to arrive 10 minutes before the session begins to allow for preliminary introductions etc…
What to wear
Please wear boots suitable for the playing surface, studs only on grass surfaces (if in doubt trainers or astro boots are perfect), shorts and t-shirt and knee-length socks with shin pads if you have them. We recommend wearing thermals underneath during colder winter months, and a fleece pullover which can be removed once you have warmed up. Please also bring a water bottle to stay hydrated.
If you wish to continue after the trial period, we can order team kit for you at special discounted prices.
