Frequently asked questions
What should my child wear?
We ask that all children are dressed ready for sport and appropriately for the weather. Shorts, t-shirts and football socks are recommended, but tracksuit bottoms and tops are also suitable. Shin pads are essential, your child may not be able to take part in some (or all) of the activities if they do not bring shin pads. In cold weather, we recommend layers, so that your child can take off/put on extra layers if they get too hot or cold.

Can I stay to watch my childs session?
We do allow parents to stay and watch the sessions, should they wish and the school permits entry.
How do we sign in the children?
Each school setting differs, however we generally meet children to supervise their changing in a specified location within the school. Students are registered before the session commences.
What happens if my child is not on the register?
If your child is not on our register they will not be permitted access to the lesson. Unfortunately without prior registration we do not have the required consent to allow your child access to our club. Students will be sent to the schools office whose staff will be asked to contact their named parent(s)/guardian(s) for collection.
What footwear should my child bring?
Please bring footwear suitable for both indoor and outdoor use. For sessions that take place on grass, we recommend football boots during the winter months, although Astroturf or moulded boots may be sufficient during the summer months. For sessions that take place in a sports hall please wear suitable trainers or Astro Turfs. Football boots are not permitted for use indoors. Without correct footwear your child may be refused access to parts or all of the lesson.
Do I have to pay for the full term?
Yes, this secures your place for the term, you will have to book on for a new term once the term has ended.
Do you offer any discounts?
What is the ratio of coaches to children?
Ratios differ depending on the type of session delivered but typically are 1 coach : 16 children.
Can I have a taster session?
We currently offer taster sessions on all our Education and Community sessions. Please click here to book.
What happens if it rains?
We will endeavour to keep the children playing Sport for as long as possible during all of our sessions. If our coaches or school deem the weather too wet or dangerous to play sport safely then contingencies are put in place to ensure all sessions continue to take place. If the school does not have a suitable indoor venue for sporting activity to take place, then classroom based activities will be delivered which may include fitness sessions, quizzes, competitions or other such football-themed games.
