The Foundation Programme is for boys and girls aged 4-7, designed by our Technical Director Andrew Bascome, our B Licence Coaches and the late Jacques Crevoisier, Senior Director in the UEFA Technical Department and ex-national coach for France, in charge of grassroots football implementation in 55 UEFA countries.

Our objective is for young players to develop a relationship with the ball and motor skills through fun activity and small sided games. 

This helps young players to be competitive and to interact with other participants. It’s also a great opportunity for the children to make friends.

Sessions will be taken by UEFA License C coaches and overseen by Andrew Bascome.
