What We Do

CSA aims to provide fun, structured teaching and coaching for children to learn and express themselves through football.

Everything starts with our Saturday morning sessions – see SATURDAY Football Fun for the Under 6s.

Kids Football What we Do

For those aged 6 and older

As we are qualified and experienced in running football teams from Under 7 upwards and we currently have 14 youth teams and one adult team in Newbury and Basingstoke.

The team play under the club name CSA 07 fc.

In CSA 07 fc we continue the fun concept developed through our Saturday morning sessions as we introduce more advanced technical skills and work to produce teams which concentrate on a touch and go passing format.

However, our aim is to provide football for everyone who wants to play, irrespective of gender, race, religion and in particular irrespective of ability. We run this in a friendly and supportive setting intending to build skills, team spirit and self-esteem. We are committed to creating and preserving the safest possible environment for children to play football. We will undoubtedly have some squads/teams that contain “better” players but we are determined to give the opportunity to those whose skills may not (yet at least) be as high but who still want to play. Ability will not be a barrier to playing for one of our squads.

Schools

We run after school clubs in West Berkshire Schools for children from Reception classes to Year 6. Again the emphasis is on fun, not pressure. We do teach basic skills and every session ends with a game.

Special Needs, the disadvantaged and disengaged

We often have young people working with us as part of their reparation from the Youth Offenders Team in Newbury as well as young volunteers and young people undertaking their Duke of Edinburgh awards etc. As our aim is to provide football for everyone including 'at risk' young people, disadvantaged/disengaged young people and children with Special Needs, Autism, Asbergers, sight and hearing impairments, ADHD and so on.

In the Community we provide football to youth services, community centres and local groups. We often take our sessions out into rural areas surrounding Reading and Newbury.
