The Stop Out Football College is to our club what others would perceive as the equivalent of other club’s “academy” approach to training their elite youngsters.
However, at Stop Out, our approach is inclusive rather than exclusive as we focus on 5 key goals.
To keep more youngsters playing & enjoying the game at Stop Out.
To deliver more skill based training that develops our players.
To encourage parents & caregivers involvement in football.
To attract players to football and to Stop Out.
To provide the opportunity for our youth players to progress to senior football.
In practical terms our Football College is grateful for the sponsorship of the Seaview Recycle & Transfer Station. The Football College runs under the guidance of the club’s Director of Football, Simon Harrold. The Football College involves the collaboration and hard work of our Junior Coaching Coordinator, Pat Gulley and club members, Chris Canton & Brendan Marsh.
There are four components to our 2008 programme at the Football College are;
High Performance Training
Junior Playing Training
Goal Keeper Training
Coaching Junior Coaches
As opportunities around our 4 components arise we will liaise with appropriate coaches and players to ensure participation by our players. We have run successful Coaching Junior Coaches sessions in recent weeks and our next offering is;
