How It All Began. The Striker Academy Story

I was awful at football at school. So bad that I was always the last one picked. It was a horrible feeling and one that I vowed no child would ever feel under our guidance at Striker Academy. It's that principle and yearning to ensure every child becomes the best they can be that has helped 1000's of children play football at the highest level.

Head Coach & Founder

Being left out at playtimes or not part of the banter and conversation at lunch can be hard on a child. Especially as those leaving you out are your friends. They don’t mean to, but you’re not as good as them at football.

It’s a cruel thing and a horrible experience but that’s exactly what happened to our Head Coach, Imtiaz, when he was at school.

Since he started Striker Academy back in 2009 with a handful of children, he vowed that not one single one of them would ever have to go through what he went through at school.

This passion for helping children succeed has led to many, many success stories. From children learning the art of playing football to children being scouted by some of the world’s best academies. 

And we are ready and waiting to help your child too.

Our unique coaches and unique coaching methodology means that no matter which class your child is in, they will be getting the very best that we have to offer in professional coaching.

Please find out more about our classes and camps below. 

If I can personally be of any assistance please do not hesitate to get in touch.

Our Coaching Model

Striker Academy Development Model

When a player has speed he/she becomes unstoppable. That’s why we coach speed and agility in every session at Striker Academy

There are a set of defined skills that every player must possess. We teach the basics right through to some complex skills. This helps to develop a players confidence, love for playing and instils a passion personal development

No matter how fast or how skilful you become, if you do not understand the mental side of the game your success will be very limited. Why limit yourself? We have been at the forefront of children’s sports psychology since 2009.

Accuracy plays a huge part in the development of every player. It helps with focus, striking the ball correctly and of course aiming in the right areas of goal to score in. We teach players how to become accurate so they striker with precision and ultimately score more goals 

Quick encompasses fast sharp movement to beat defenders but also balance co-ordination and technique. fast feet will beat the defender, but poise, balance and technique will help you score more
