UPPINGHAM MINI SOCCER COURSES FOR 4 TO 12 YEAR OLDS:
Our football programme for girls and boys aged between 4 and 12 years is suitable for the first experiences of the game as well as youngsters wishing to advance their skills. This is a real opportunity for youngsters to get involved in sport and to make new friends too. The sessions are led by John Mulholland, (a fully qualified UEFA B coach and fully DBS checked with public liability insurance). The programme is based on fun and enjoyment. Mini Soccer teaches the basic techniques of the game through fun games in a friendly and safe environment. The mini soccer course lasts for ten 1 hour sessions and costs £50. The sessions are on Saturdays at Uppingham Community College’s new 3G astroturf. In bad weather we also have use of the school’s indoor sports hall.

HERE’S WHAT PARENTS ARE SAYING ABOUT OUR FOOTBALL COURSES:
“After having a fantastic time at Fiesta De Futbol’s school holiday camp, our son Matty asked for a Fiesta football party for his 7th birthday.
From the very beginning we received excellent support and customer service from John Mulholland who ensured it was a simple, pain free and easy process to get the party booked and prepared for. Whenever we had any questions John was quick to respond to our queries.
Matty and 16 of his football mad friends had an amazing time at the party, which ran smoothly from start to finish. From the minute they arrived, all of the children were incredibly engaged and John’s coaching style ensures that he has the kids full attention at all times. As parents we could sit and enjoy watching all the action, and without exception all of the children were buzzing with excitement as the party came to an end.
We would not hesitate in recommending the Fiesta party, it has definitely been the best received and most enjoyed party we have ever held, it is also brilliant value for money.”
Dawn and Russ Bland, Jan 2017
“My son has attended Mini Soccer and Fiesta de Futbol for the last two years and I cannot recommend both of them highly enough! His confidence has improved enormously alongside his technical ability. This is all thanks to John and Vicky who are fantastic coaches with an engaging style which allows the youngsters to learn whilst having fun and learning to be part of a team. If your child is mad about football this is a great place to start and a stepping stone to the more competitive side of the game” David Window, May 2014

So players need the following: Rain jacket, shin pads, trainers (studded boots not needed but can be worn on the astro pitch- not indoors), re-fillable water bottle, warm clothing- shorts, tracksuit bottoms, hat, gloves, jumper in winter.
