Pro Football Training began in August 2009 and currently coaches around 1600 children per week. We pride ourselves on being a team of highly energetic, passionate and professional educators with many years experience coaching children of all ages and abilities and have created a Junior Development Program aimed at giving children a positive experience through the game of Soccer.

How does Before and After School coaching work?

Periodic weekly sessions can be arranged, e.g. every Monday for 7 weeks. Session Times can be tailored around your school; our normal training times are 7.00am to 8.00am or 315pm-415pm.

A Typical Before School Session

6.45am – PFT Coach arrives at the school to set up

7.00am – The players arrive they will be given a ball each to work on their skills

7.10am – Dynamic Warm Up with the Ball

7.15am – Fun Skill Game to conclude the warm-up

7.25am – Small Sided Games of 1v1, 2v2, 3v2, 3v3 etc

7.50am – Cool Down and De-Brief

8.00am – PFT Coach makes sure all children safely go into school

What do you gain from Pro Football Training coming to your school?

Our experience in the game both in playing and coaching, as well as our passion for continually improving our programs we have devised a model based around the Complete Player, which is not only aimed at making children better footballers but also better people.

The Complete Player

  • Technical
  • Tactical
  • Physical
  • Mental
  • Emotional
  • Lifestyle

Each session children will be learning new techniques within the game of football and also start the school day in a positive manner having been engaged in a fun and positive environment.

Schools can also utilise Pro Football Training within their school day during Sports Lessons and/or for Staff Professional Development Days.

What are the ratios of Children to Coaches?

Our philosophy is to engage every child during the session and the maximum children we would have per coach is 16. Children are split into groups according to their age, with all children welcome to attend. Experience or knowledge of the game is not essential, enthusiasm is encouraged and ability is not a criterion.

Should potential talent be recognised we would extend an invitation into our Advanced Development Program. All children would also be able to participate in our Holiday Clinics.

Where are the sessions held at?

Sessions are held on School Grounds so that children can be dropped off/picked up by their parents on the school site. We will conduct the session on the school oval, school gymnasium or any appropriate outdoor area.
