Oxford United in the Community’s Skills Centres offers starter-level technical coaching to girls and boys of any ability from 5-11.
Skills Centres provide a fun, player-centred environment in which young people will be encouraged to be creative and inventive in their football development. The programme offers a way to improve technical skills for those new to football, as well as to members of competitive grassroots or school teams.
Weekly sessions focus on improving the ability of each player in areas such as ball mastery, passing, dribbling, turning & shooting. The key principles of attacking, defending and reading the game are developed through 1v1, 2v2 and small-sided games.
The sessions are one hour in length and are run by Oxford United in the Community’s fully qualified and experienced coaching staff.
New to 2023 are the Mini Ox (players aged 5-8) and Junior Ox (players aged 9-11) setup. Players progressing well from both of these setups may be given the opportunity to trial for the OUitC Development Centre.
