1-2-1 & Group Sessions

Simply Sport are now offering small group & 121 coaching sessions.

Football is a team game and there is no substitute for game-based training to develop as a player. 

Our small group & 121 coaching offers an opportunity for all football players to work on their individual area of needs, which can be easily neglected in team training, the opportunity to breakdown technical details are vital to long term outcomes.

121 football training offers a great platform for the player to ask questions, and experiment in a pressure-free environment, learn and grow at their own pace.




Contact one of our coaches below or drop us a message. We will get back in touch to discuss you requirements.


After an initial discussion about what you want to get from the sessions our coach will tailor a block of sessions to meet your needs.


Once dates, venues and times are agreed the block of sessions will commence.

How it works

Our Coaches

Our coaches have all been on a different coaching journey up to now and their areas of expertise vary. We are not a team of coaches who have all played sports to a professional level. What we are is a company of coaches whom all have thousands of hours of working with children under the belt and do so on a daily basis. We understand how children learn and how to design sessions to get the very best outcomes.

121 Training -  Our Private Training is a full hour session with just the individual and one of our coaches, this serves for a great opportunity for personal development. Each session focuses on 4 elements: Technical, Tactical, Physical, & Mental. The sessions will be tailored to the individual's needs which can really accelerate the player's progress.

Group Training Our Group Training is a service for the players who like the idea of improving with a teammate or a group of friends. They are training sessions that can include up to 4 players and focus on the 4 key elements: Technical, Tactical, Physical, & Mental. The Group Training enables the coaches to work on more game-like scenarios, with having the ability to work on things like passing combinations, shooting combinations & 1v1’s. Our group training service also adds the social side of training, which certain players prefer.


Please note that with our Private Group training sessions, the booking should only be made if you have the group of players already. 

Goalkeeping Many goalkeepers can get overlooked in a group environment, and find themselves just saving shots at the end of the training, with minimal technical detail been given. Our goalkeeper training gives any goalkeeper the opportunity to spend a full hour with our goalkeeper specific coach, allowing the coach to work on the different goalkeeping techniques such as Handling, Positioning, Distribution and Footwork.

Fitness - Whether its fitness for football or just fitness, in general, you would like to improve on then get in touch for us to tailor a block of sessions to achieve your goals.
