MEET THE COACHES....

The Regent's Park club team are passionate about supplying the best football coaching teams and the best learning environment for our players. Regent's are proud to have a learning environment to set up to improve our staff as well as players. Our coach team help us

  • To create our club's style of play.
  • To produce football that is varied, dynamic, with initiative and high intensity.
  • To develop intelligent footballers which we need for the Gothia 
  • To grow confident and good kids who become good people
  • To give our players the best fun and learning environment to play good football

Our Regents way begins with our Toddler and Kids sessions for our 4 to 6 year olds and this program is managed by our wonderful Keeley Kemble. All children are different and learn at different levels, so our coaching sessions will have a variety of ages within them. The key is having fun and in our parents just enjoying watching our young players.

Our coaching way or structure requires specific developmental steps at key moments in the player's growth and to achieve this most effectively and consistently "Age Band Specialists" are appointed to deliver their own key phase of the system.

We base our way on having three to four hours and 2000 touches a week. Increasing to over 3000 with our older players.

U8 & U9 Phase: Introducing Technique,
U10 & U11 Phase: Teaching Technique
U12 Phase: Tuning the Technique

Each session is geared around touching the ball as many times as possible. Basic motor skills such as running, skipping and hopping are emphasised, improving ball control and general movement. But above all the emphasis is on fun for your child!

U13 to U14 Phase: Turning technique into Skill
U15, U16 and U17 Phase: Preparing our player program for University/Senior squads.
