Let’s answer your questions

We know you’ve probably got lots of questions to ask about our 1-to-1 coaching classes.
To make things easy, we’ve gone ahead and answered the commonly asked:


What is 1 to 1 football coaching?

Simply put, 1 on 1 football coaching involves one player and a personal coach.

Much like a personal gym trainer, we provide your child with their own personal football coach to help them develop their football skills and confidence.

Here’s a clip from one of our 1-to-1 sessions:

What do your 1 on 1 football coaching lessons involve?

Whether your child is an aspiring academy player or a total novice, our 1-to-1 classes are designed to boost confidence. Our personal, tailor-made sessions can fast-track your child’s development. The additional support and tutoring can lead to faster progress than in less focused group classes.

Individualised Training Programme

Your child’s first lesson involves an assessment of their ability from our expert coaches. This initial observation helps inform your child’s bespoke training programme.

Physical Training

One very important aspect of Samba Soccer Schools 1-to-1 lessons is our focus on High-Intensity Interval Training (HITT). This involves short bursts of intense exercise alternated with low-intensity recovery periods.

This type of training is excellent for developing these essential skills for football: Physical Fitness, Agility, Speed, Balance & Coordination

Technical Training

We combine this physically-focused approach with ball mastery. This is technique-orientated and encourages players to play with flair.

During our sessions, we have dedicated periods in which these skills can be applied in passing and shooting drills.
