MEET THE COACHES....

The Regent's Park club team are passionate about supplying the best football coaching programs available and we look to benchmark the very best coaching clubs. This has seen us work with Tahuichi, in Bolivia, Athletic Bilbao to our partnership with Queens Park Rangers. Our coaching team meets on a four to six week basis and our core functions are;

  • To develop, define and monitor the club's football philosophy.
  • To strategically develop, define and monitor the Football Performance Plan.
  • To monitor the transition of players through each Phase of the performance pathway.
  • To monitor the playing opportunities for playing at a higher level.
  • To monitor the productivity profile of the club in terms of our technical tables

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.
