With almost 30 years of experience we are arguably the biggest football and coaching company in Hertfordshire. We still provide the same care to each individual in our scientifically research based structure. Very few Football Clubs are keen to coach children of all standards and abilities. At Excel Sport all children are welcome, we really do cater for the complete beginner to the budding superstar.
Excel Sport is recognised as a respected training ground and maintains strong links with Professional Clubs such as Chelsea, Watford, Brighton and Barnet. Each season a number of our children will go on to train at this level, however, the vast majority come to Excel to learn the game and improve their skills for their own enjoyment or to compete at school or club level.
We have a development league where football is played for learning, provide games for understanding and promote decision making. We do not tell them what to do, they learn what to do. Most importantly we develop individuals through a structure in five areas; Technical, Tactical, Physical, Social and Psychological. Each area is introduced at the right time. We specialise in the pre Foundation and Foundation Phase where up to the age of 13 years the focus is on Motor Learning, Agility, Balance, Coordination, building up speed and FUN.
Our ethos has always been to provide football coaching to children of all standards and abilities to build confidence whilst learning new skills and above all to have lots of fun. However, players can move onto Youth Development Phase where the focus is more on Speed and Tactics. We directly provide progressions to our local clubs that play in local leagues, one of our clubs is Aldenham FC and at Semi-Professional level Edgware Town FC.
Our view is that Football is the language of the playground and a love of the game can develop very early on, often leading to a lifetime of enjoyment and involvement in team play. Excel Sport promotes a healthy active lifestyle, which will stay with children through to adulthood. But more than just football, Excel Sport create a structured, disciplined environment where coaches are good role models, they develop positive relationships with both children and parents alike, promoting good sportsmanship and respect for others.
