Catalan Soccer aim to provide every child with the very best football tuition, learning to play a diverse and varied approach to the game, giving them the tools they need to prosper in football and a range of other sports. Not all kids play football to be professionals, and many of them won't make it through what is a long and difficult pathway. Through our coaching sessions we ensure that players achieve the things that matter to them - whether that be making new friends, getting fitter and faster, playing out things they see their favourite players doing on TV, or getting signed at a professional academy. Every child counts and we make them feel that way!
Not all children will 'make it' as professional footballers, however that does not mean that the rest have failed. Catalan Soccer® aspires to develop young players at every level. Our mission is to nurture talent, promote social integration and develop honest and friendly footballers that graduate from our soccer school as better, more fulfilled and happier young people.
Being good, fantastic or even just competent at football can be the social passport that kids need to be popular on the playground, and to feel acceptance amongst their peers. Helping young players become the best individual and team player they can benefits their all round self-belief and confidence, and is proven to have a positive impact on their academic studies and life away from football. A popular kid is usually a happy kid!
The daily interactions with our players in the Catalan coaching sessions are underpinned by our own Hierachy of Player Fulfilment and Participation needs. Our child-centric model puts the young player's personal needs at the very heart of every interaction between player and coach, and also acts as the foundation for the content of our practical cirriculum and coaching sessions.
