About ClubFootball Juniors
Since kicking off our junior football programmes in 2003, ClubFootball has led the way in providing a top-quality developmental, educational and enjoyable football experience to youngsters in China!
Today, our highly-qualified (FA/UEFA) team of full-time international coaches & local coaching assistants delivers programmes at more than 30 locations across Beijing & Tianjin to local & international boys & girls aged between 3 and 16 years old.
But we’re not just about football! ClubFootball strongly believes that sport can play an extremely valuable role in a child’s development, teaching them how to interact with other children along with essential life skills such as teamwork, leadership & sportsmanship.
Of course, a large part of nurturing a happy, confident child comes from showing them that practice & dedication in any field will yield an improvement and so we aim to provide a progressive pathway to allow every child to play at a suitable ability level.
Boys and girls from 3-4 year olds can get their first taste of the game with the ClubFootball MiniSkills programme. Taught by qualified coaches who specialise with this age-group, MiniSkills is specifically designed to give children an introduction to football and to teach basic skills through themed games. Players learn to interact with other children and sessions focus on developing spatial awareness and improving motor skills, balance and coordination. Above all, courses are great fun and aim to develop a passion for the game, ready to move on to the next level!
Players from 5 years upwards follow the 3-Level ClubFootball Soccer Coaching & Development Programme. The programme has been specially designed for international and local youngsters here in China and caters for all levels, from fun skills classes for beginners to advanced technical training and competition for experienced players.
Beginners start off on our Skills Courses (Level 1), learning the fundamentals that the game requires. At the end of each semester they come together at our Nike ClubFootball Junior Cup event (an unmissable football festival!), to put these skills into practice against other boys & girls in a friendly & enjoyable environment.
Coaches monitor the progress of every child utilizing our proprietary database software and when we believe that a child is ready, they are invited to join our more advanced classes (Skills League, Level 2) before eventually making their way into a fully-fledged team (League Teams, Level 3) competing regularly in leagues in Beijing and tournaments across Asia.
Throughout the course of their child’s football development, parents are invited & encouraged to dialogue with their coach to ensure they are gaining maximum benefit from ClubFootball’s programmes. Similar to a kindergarten or school we take the responsibility with which we have been entrusted extremely seriously!
To this end, ClubFootball has gone to great lengths to ensure that we meet and exceed the highest levels of expectation. We are a fully registered Joint-Venture company (a rarity in the football sector!) that is fully compliant with Chinese law in all regards, requiring background checks and CRB/police checks, as well as coaching qualifications of course, when bringing new coaches from the UK.
Furthermore, we have been privileged to cooperate with many of the biggest names in football including the Premier League, Manchester United, Manchester City, Liverpool, Arsenal, The FA, CFA, BFA, Nike, Adidas, Nature’s Bounty, MasterCard and many more very well-respected organizations.
To demonstrate we are worthy of your trust in raising your child as a happy, confident and well-rounded individual who reaches his full potential on and off the football pitch, we invite you put us to the test by attending one of our free “Taster Sessions”.
In addition to running coaching programmes for children, ClubFootball also delivers Coach Education programmes to teachers, schools and education bureaus across China. Many courses are delivered in partnership with the Premier League and British Council as part of the Premier Skills programme. Through Premier Skills, ClubFootball coaches are trained as Coach Educators by Premier League coaches and then approved to deliver week-long Premier Skills courses to PE teacher and coaches all over China.
In addition, ClubFootball also operates its own Coach Education courses with a range of themes, from European coaching theory and group management to dealing with particular tactical issues such as coaching your team in 7 and 11-a-side competitions!
