Hollands & Blair Pre Academy Launched

Soccer Elite FA are delighted to partner with Hollands & Blair FC to launch a new Pre Academy for players in school years R & 1.

Starting in the new year, the link up will provide players starting their journey in the beautiful game with the opportunity to be coached by Soccer Elite FA and Hollands & Blair coaches before graduating in Blair’s squads and SEFA’s main Academy at under 7.

Taking place on Saturday mornings, our Pre Academy players will be among the first to sample the fantastic new facilities at Star Meadow Sports Complex, with development on the main pitch and surroundings currently in progress – with completion on the work expected in January.

Pre Academy sessions will emphasise fun and engagement, with a key focus of ensuring players fall in love with the beautiful game. This is achieved through exciting and structured sessions delivered by engaging and highly-qualified coaches, with the aim developing players with an excellent foundation of technical skill with ball mastery, achieved through a mix of opposed and unopposed practices as well as small sided games. Focus is also given to building social skills and confidence, with players being encouraged interact with their peers and the coaches within the sessions. 

All new players are entitled to a no-obligation FREE taster session when we begin in January. To register your interest, please fill in the form at the bottom of the page!
