Easter Holiday: A fun way to learn the game with our AFC Wimbledon Foundation

Sign your child up to one of our fantastic half-term football courses

29 March 2018

Our Foundation Coaching team will be running a busy Easter programme during half-term with great opportunities for children to learn the game.

The main Player Development Centre at Wimbledon Park, Revelstoke Road, caters for aspiring footballers between the age of 4-13 with the aim of improving their footballing skills and match play. For younger children (4-6 years), the Little Kickers programme aims to teach the basics of ball control and movement in a fun environment. The Foundation's main Player Development sessions are for footballers aged between 6 and 13 years who want to develop their all-round game in a more competitive environment.

Leading Foundation coaches will provide high quality coaching to cater for all abilities, while encouraging players to improve their personal skills and enjoyment of the game.

On selected courses the Foundation will also run tournament days when participants at older age groups will be formed into small sided-teams to play competitively against one another and outside teams. The Foundation has a strong link with the club's Academy programme and coaches will forward the details of high ability young players to club scouts and academy staff when appropriate.
