It is with huge excitement and a great deal of enthusiasm that Street Kings UK can now announce our official partnership with Dawley Wanderers FC in Telford.
A leading part of the agreement is to host a King of Tekkers Academy for existing & also prospective club members. The details are as followed:
- Tuesday evenings 18:00-19:00
- Phoenix school football pitches
- Aged 6,7 & 8
- First taster session FREE
- First block payment – £25.00 (Non Dawley Wanderers Members – £30.00)
- Ongoing block payments – £20.00
- Block duration – 4 week cycle
Using our unique inflatable street-soccer pitches, Street Kings UK aims to provide a safe, fun and creative platform for children to be able to explore the game, make mistakes, use their imagination and enhance their technique in a non-competitive setting with the coaching focus being completely on the individual.
“We focus on areas of the game that others don’t with enjoying the sport being the central focus of everything we do. This compliments the work of the dedicated coaches at Dawley Wanderers Football Club as our unique angle allows children to be able to work on their own individual skills away from the tactical side of competitive game.” – Rob Scott, Street Kings UK
When a player enrols with Street Kings UK to a King of Tekkers Academy they are issued with their very own personalised workbook. This workbook then becomes their soccer bible, it is their individual skills assessment to be worked on in a structured way but at their own pace.
The workbooks contain 5 Modules with 5 separate areas of play and 3 levels to complete within each area. Foundation, Intermediate and Master.
Each session is structured to include an area of the booklet and coaches will award a stamp in players booklets when they are satisfied they have mastered a certain technique to a certain level. Players are sometimes assessed by an individual demonstration or a coach may notice something particularly good during the session and award a stamp on the spot.
It is key to remember that the aim of the King of Tekkers Academy is to work on players individual technique BUT it is crucial I mention that when players join an academy they join a group, we believe the opportunity to make new friends, socialize with your peers and interact in a fun atmosphere is just as critical as progressing through the booklets.
“This partnership is exciting not only from a club point of view but for the kids, it give them a change to further improve and importantly enjoy football in a completely different setting” – Graham Cartwright, Dawley Wanderers
