Frequently Asked Questions:

Can I come out and try a session without having to block book?
There may be flexibility to allow this - its always worth an ask. However, most Catalan classes are very high demand and often its a matter of making a block booking if you would like to secure your space. We are happy to discuss this, please just get in touch!

I'm not going to be able to make one of my sessions that I have pre-paid for, can I double up one week to catch up?
Absolutely! Subject to availability we are happy to accommodate players in catch-up sessions to ensure they do not miss out on their Catalan training. Just give us a call and we can talk through your options.

Can I book private coaching classes and 1-1 tuition for my child?
Yes. For more information go to our CatalanPRO® page which tells you all about the variety of weekly and ad-hoc coaching sessions available. We cater for all ages from 6+. Click here to find out more...

Do Catalan Soccer run birthday parties or end of season events for junior clubs?
Yes and No. We run end of season celebrations for junior teams including ZORB football and Football Pool. We signpost all birthday parties onto our partner Goals Leeds who offer the best kids party packages in the city.

What is the maximum age limit for Catalan weekly sessions?
Generally speaking,  our coaching sessions are suitable for players ages 4-13. However, we also have a number of 14/15 year old players in our Tuesday and Friday night Tactical classes. Our Under 13 Elite  players are more than capable of giving them a run for their money!

Is there a discount for siblings or for players doing more than one session with Catalan?
Whilst there is no sibling discount, we do offer a multi-session discount for players attending more than one weekly Catalan class. We also reduce the cost of sessions for longer block bookings where we are able to reduce costs of adminstration.

Can girls train with Catalan, or is it just training for boys?
Female players are more than welcome to train at Catalan. Due to the physical bias of the boys, we usually place a female player with slightly younger boys as to keep their training positive and fun. However, sometimes the girls have to take it easy on the boys! One of our girls Monique plays for England and runs the show on the Tuesday night Tactical classes.

Do I have to buy one of the training kits when joining?
Not for your first block of sessions. We appreciate that during your child's first few weeks at Catalan they may decide it's not for them. On renewal of sessions we ask all parents to purchase the training kits which are just £40.
