Frequently Asked Questions

We hope the below FAQ’s will be helpful. We are happy to answer any further enquiries at hello@futureoffootball.co.uk

Skill Sessions

Q. My child plays for a team; can they still attend their club team training and games as well as FOF sessions?

Of course, we encourage all members to continue to play with their current club team. We work alongside local youth clubs to make sure our sessions do not clash.

Q. My child has no experience of playing football. Does this matter?

Not at all. Whether your child is new to the game or an experienced player they are more than welcome to join us.

Q. Can my child have a free taster before registering?

Yes, we offer all potential new members a free, no obligation taster session to see if they enjoy what we do.

Q. How do I book my child’s free taster session?

To book your child’s free taster session, click here or email hello@futureoffootball.co.uk with your child’s name, date of birth and venue(s) you are interested in.

Q. What should my child wear to their taster session?

Comfortable footwear and light sports clothing. Please also bring a drink.

Q. My child really enjoyed their taster session. How do I sign them up regularly?

If your child enjoyed their taster session and would like to join us – all you have to do is email us at hello@futureoffootball.co.uk and we will send you all the joining information you need.

Membership for FOF Skill Sessions is £24 a month paid via direct debit.

Q. Do parents need to stay and watch?

For players aged 7 and below parent/guardians are required to stay as it is always reassuring for the child knowing their parent/guardian is close by. If for any reason you are unable to stay for the session, a responsible adult (aged 16+) must be present.

Our venue and staff costs are fixed, so unfortunately we cannot give refunds for any sessions missed.

You are not tied in to a contract or any minimum periods of attendance or notice. All we ask, is that you simply let us know so we can cancel your payment with us.
