Academy Training

Academy sessions

Our academy sessions (for children in nursery class to year 11) bring together children giving them access to football in their own environment. GFA also promotes socialising, sharing human values and promotes the pleasure of practising the marvellous sport of football.

All our coaches are independent coaching staff with FA or UEFA qualified certificates, Enhanced CRB (CRC) certificates, Emergency Aid certificates and Safeguarding Children Certificates.

Our academy runs every Saturday during school term time and each session lasts for 90 minutes. 

Our Grasshopper Tots session lasts for 45 minutes.

Our Grasshopper Squad session lasts for 60 minutes.

Your child’s first session is FREE!

Every child’s first session is FREE so parents and their children can come along and see what we do. The free session also gives the parents an opportunity to meet us and ask any questions they may have.

Furthermore by bringing your child along you can do the most important thing of all….ask your child if they enjoyed GFA and if they would like to come back again!
