  • We ask that children wear the FC Academy kits each session – so they are part of the team. If you are coming to your first taster session, just wear something comfortable, you get the kit as part of the membership. If you love your taster session and want to become a member, a £22 membership fee is added to your order. This fee covers insurance and admin costs, plus your brand new FC Academy kit!

LSC pathway

At LSC we pride ourselves on developing children through sport. Our range of soccer schools and clubs enable us to offer an unprecedented development pathway for boys and girls aged 18 months to 12 years old and beyond!

Our youngest players start with at 18 months old as part of our Tots FC Programme, we have Tiny Tots for ages 18 months to 3 years old. By their 3rd birthday they will graduate to our Mighty Tots sessions  for 3 to 5 years old. They are a little longer, slightly more structured and start to introduce rules that we’re all familiar with.

Once a player turns 5 they graduate to our FC Academy programme where sessions are based on the ‘Mini Soccer’ philosophy, a scaled down version of association football, smaller pitches and fewer players. Skills that will be taught include dribbling, turning, passing, heading, shooting, co-ordination amongst many others.

Players who show a willingness to progress further are offered a place in our junior football club, FC Sports, which has teams from under 6s through to under 16s who train together once a week and play in local leagues at the weekend.
