Each WBFC program operates a coach to pupil ratio of 1-10, this allows us to individuals sessions between age and ability and is a key difference between WBFC and many other Football Programs.
Every session must be, and always is fun! After all this is your child’s holiday from School.
Accordingly, we ensure the children are kept busy! With a number of session changes per day, for the younger players we encourage our coaches to make up-to four session changes in any one hour. This keeps the younger players focused, and ultimately learning!
Each day at WBFC follows a rough time line, with an extensive session plan, which changes daily, and weekly. Ensuring the players never repeat sessions, unless required; after all repetitive learning is how many of us actually learn.
Our coaching plans are written by professional FA coaches and National Curriculum teacher’s, an example of a session plan can be found here
At the end of each day, a prize presentation takes place, with awards for the most improved player of the day, the best player of the day, and the players player of the day. We also offer spot prizes, for children displaying positive attitudes towards the sessions. This enables us to reinforce positive behaviour and keep the children focused on learning.
Wes does have a direct input into all session planning at WBFC. He users his wide experience, of many coaching systems, to keep things educational but FUN!
Wes obviously makes every effort to attend as many camps personally as possible, when other working commitments permit. your child will have the opportunity to learn the beautiful game, alongside a true Old Trafford great! Wes also encourages camp visits from other Premiership stars new & old, these visits often take the form of a Q&A session, with photo opportunities, details of these visits can be found on our social media pages here
Finally, every camp is attended by a trained safeguarding officer, operating under the guidance of Ofsted. This ensures, children are cared for in a professional way, with accompanied toilet visits, regular refreshments, regular risk assessment and functional rest when required. All team members have access to our central communication office, via radio link, and phone. Your child will be safe in our care at all times.
