"Thank you! Scott has had the MOST super week! You are brilliant!"
C.A.C.L. Saturday morning football training sessions are held in the excellent facilities of Brighton University, Denton Road, Eastbourne. We have use of the Sports Hall and the outdoor astro-turf.
Our training sessions are designed for boys and girls of all abilities from the age of 4-12. We split our children into five groups (dependent on age and ability) to ensure they are sufficiently challenged and they enjoy themselves.
The session lasts one hour and, within each session, all children will participate in a ball skill warm up; a skill based drill; a conditioned game that reemphasises the drill and a free play game to finish. We encourage ball skills and ball mastery from the youngest group to the oldest and this is evident in every session. Overall, enjoyment is the absolute key to our sessions and our team of coaches work extremely hard to ensure every session has a fun element incorporated into it. We are sensitive to the needs of each child, we aim to build confidence and love to see children's enjoyment playing without the worries of making mistakes.
At C.A.C.L. we do not have teams, we are not a club, but we focus on skills for footballers to transfer if they decide to join a club. This allows us to improve players of all abilities and ensure all children participate fully during the session. We are not affiliated with any local clubs but a large number of our children play for local club sides and some of our C.A.C.L. graduates have go onto represent clubs, counties and even the country!
"Thank you so much for arranging the coaches to come to Euan’s fifth birthday party. He had a wonderful time and so did all the other children. The medals went down a treat and I hear of some little boys who went to sleep still with them on - they were so proud! The coaches were fantastic and were absolutely brilliant with the children. I couldn’t have tackled 30 odd marauding children in such a calm and professional way."
