SLD Soccer school and camp


The SLD Soccer school has been set up by Moving Matters, to support the development of young footballers.  Our vision is to establish a soccer school which players look forward to attending and where a supportive environment is created for the children to learn and enjoy their football development.

Players have the opportunity to train and develop technical ability, gameplay, decision making and attitude to progress and improve.

We run two programmes at The Elmgreen: multi-ability and elite. 


Our multi-ability programme is open to boys and girls from reception age to year 6 and it runs on Saturday mornings, 10.30 - 12.00

Elite programme.

Our Elite programme is now until it's third full season. We invite talented players from year 4-6 to come and join one of our groups. We hope to progress players onto higher level opportunities within academy programmes or find the right pathway for their development. Our Elite programme involves games against other soccer schools or professional academies.

Our aim is to provide high quality coaching which allows players to develop in a positive and progressive environment.

Our coaching team are inspiring industry professionals with a passion for football development and years of experience of working with primary aged pupils.

Involvement in these groups are by invitation only however we offer a two week FREE trial so If you would like to refer a player or your own child please contact me, Rob Wilkinson 07918744557.
