Meet the team

Football Magic Coaching is defined by the quality of its coaches and it is because of them that we are known for providing high quality fun football coaching courses. We are proud to have a team of coaches who come from various backgrounds each with something different to offer our football academy.

All our coaches are FA qualified and DBS checked to guarantee your children are in the best possible hands. To maintain the highest possible standards of coaching we encourage and support the personal development of our coaches, whether this is in the latest coaching techniques or progressing with their qualifications. Whilst our coaches each bring with them different ideas and coaching experiences they all share the following characteristics- friendly, dedicated, enthusiastic and, most importantly, fun. Our coaches are ideally prepared to ensure your child receives the best possible coaching in a fun and friendly environment.
