SLD Soccer school and camp


The SLD Soccer school has been set up by Moving Matters, to support the development of young footballers from Lambeth and the surrounding areas.  

Players have the opportunity to train and develop technical ability, gameplay, decision making and attitude to progress and improve.

We run two programmes at The Elmgreen secondary school, where we train on their astro turf pitch: multi-ability and elite.

Elite programme.

Our Elite programme is now until it's third full season. We invite talented players from years 3-6 to come and join one of our groups.

Monday - Year 3&4    Wednesday - Years 5,6 & 7

Our aim is to provide high quality coaching which allows players to develop in a positive and progressive environment. The coaching focuses on highly technical opposed and uppossed practice and small sided games.  

If the right opportunities for progression arise, we support our players as best we can to progress. HOWEVER we don't sell false promises and aren't focused on putting players forwards unless we feel they're ready. 

Our coaching team are inspiring industry professionals with a passion for football development and years of experience of working with primary aged pupils.

To sign up for a trial session, please contact me, George Marsden 07454782010.

We now offer a full week's soccer camp every school holiday. At the camp, we develop a range of skills throughout the week see below.

Every day we want the children to learn and develop new skills, so the coaching is varied.

We focus on ensuring the players have lots of touches of the ball in a fun and engaging environment. We focus on small sided football, group and individual competitions.

Here is the weekly focus:

Monday: Ball mastery, dribbling and running with the ball

Penalty competition and keep up challenge

Crossbar challenge and hit the zone
