Copy of Plans For 2023-2024 Season (for our current Little League Players) ๐Ÿ’™โšฝ๏ธ๐Ÿ’›



Dear Super Parent ๐Ÿ™‚


There is an important thing you must do at the end of this information page. It takes 10 seconds and ensures we are clear on your re-joining status for next season ๐Ÿ‘


And just like that, another season is nearly over! Next season is a step up for your little footballer as they enter our official club, training twice a week and playing matches against other teams in the Epsom and Ewell League on Saturday mornings.


Below you will find plans for next season, and information on re-joining.

ย 

BENEFITS AND VALUE FOR YOU


1. Training Kit For Each Child โœ…

Your child will receive a tracksuit, training top, and rain jacket as part of your re-registration fee.


2. Further Opportunities & Experiences For Our Players โœ…

Our Torino FC (the Italian, Serie A professional club) partnership allows for our players to be coached by their pro coaches. They visit us in November, and provide the opportunity to enjoy a 3 day camp at Easter. We are the only club in the UK to hold this partnership.


3. Goalkeeper Training โœ…

Every technical evening, we hold goalkeeper training for any child who wishes to give this a go.


4. Train twice a week โœ…

Technical night is led by Skillz coaches, and Team night is led by your manager. This mix of coaching has proved hugely succesful for our teams this season


5. Continuous Manager Development โœ…

Our Academy Manager, Valentino De Luca, provides daily support for our managers. He is on hand at all training sessions and home matches to guide and develop them. Our entire team of managers are parents of the club who have been put through training and on their FA coaching course.


6. Filmed Matches with Veo Technology โœ…

Memories being captured on film that will last forever. We record our matches (club rota so each team gets equal filming opportunity) and provide you with the footage, including clipped highlights to view all of the exciting parts easily!


7. Excellent facilities - training and match days โœ…

We train at Mons Hill Sports Centre on their astro, and at the prestigious private school, Royal Russell.

Our home ground is Beddington Cricket Club where the pitches are well maintained, and we have a club house too.


8. Guest Academy Sessions ๐Ÿ˜ฑ

To give our players a further unique experience, we have secured 3 Premier League Academy Coaches to deliver 2 sessions each across next season. See the talent we are bringing in:

  1. Joe Antonelli - Crystal Palace FC u15s coach

  2. Rob Jones - Crystal Palace FC u9s coach

  3. Scott Hastings - Chelsea FC u15s coach

All 3 are working in an elite environment, and all started out in a grassroots club like ours. They are all UEFA B licensed, with Joe Antonelli an A licensed coach + Advanced Youth Award holder. Joe and Rob were featured in the Channel 4 Crystal Palace documentary which you can watch here


This, along with Torino FC coaches visiting, well what can we say? What an experience for our players! ๐Ÿ˜ฌ


9. New FREE Match Day Kit ๐Ÿคž

We have secured a sponsor to provide this for all new players. Design, sponsor and info announced soon, but this is absolutely FREE of charge!


ย 

PRICING FOR NEW SEASON

You may have seen that other grassroots clubs out there are cheaper and offer much less than us, but our club does not operate in the same way (giving your child a mix of grassroots and academy style), and we are not run by volunteers like others. We're passionate about giving you an experience that's truly great, and we work 7 days a week to continue to improve for you.


In order to do that, we invest in 2 full time members of staff, an admin team, a team of coaches to run technical nights, good quality venues and equipment, an exclusive partnership that no other club offers, plus all of the other benefits listed above. It costs us ยฃ90,000+ to run the club each season, but we aim to remain great value and charge a fair price to you, our wonderful community!
