Grassroots football within the UK has continued to evolve over the past few years with more and more clubs seeking professionalisation. The FA are doing their part by developing a more comprehensive educational framework for managers & coaches, and we at Ultimate Coaching ensure children and managers receive 1st class coaching, mentoring & consultancy.

This evolution was triggered by the Football Associations `Future Game` concept which was introduced in 2012, which was then followed by the FA DNA in 2015.

Our specialist football department, UFA, has an ongoing commitment to be a driving force behind the integration of these models, and we delighted with the impact we are having.

We continue to be innovative when designing bespoke models for football clubs or institutions. We believe the foundation to any successful development programme is to achieve the following;

  • Synchronise practice with match day preparation

  • Educate parents and managers 

  • Build trust, offer continuity and guarantees 

  • Ensure professionalisation is affordable 

  • Offer complimentary consultation 

We offer the following services to grassroots clubs;

  • Interactive CPD age specific workshops      

  • Team specific or positional specific training

  • Match assessment programmes

  • Supplementary technical models  

  • Fund raising events, tournaments, coaching schools and open days. 

  • Advise on football policy and constitution 

Foundation - U5 & U6

We believe offering the perfect environments for boys and girls at entry level is absolutely key.

The experience for children aged 4 - 6 should be inspirational, gripping and challenging.

Creating a balance of activity which enables children to grasp the fundamentals, establishing freedom to play to experiment, be adventurous, take risks and explore.

At UFA we design and implement these programmes for grassroots clubs wishing to  professionalise and help children be the best they can be.

  • Movement literacy

  • Story book activity

  • Ball mastery

  • 1 v 1 integration

  • Coaching methodoly and styles

Mentoring in Football

We recognise that the professionalisation of grassroots football is a long term transition.

UFA believe in order to meet the needs of players and parents, volunteers that drive local football require a level of mentoring & consultancy.

  • Developing a club philosophy

  • Group coaching demonstrations

  • 1:1 coaching, match-day observation and support

  • Skills analysis for individual / age group coaches

  • Support & consultancy with Foundation / entry level programmes (U5 / U6)
