2.17854361The club runs a Keepy-Uppy rewards scheme for children in Reception to Year 6.

The idea originally was to get the child to understand practice, whilst also helping their ball control. It takes practice, effort, dedication, understanding self correction, concentration, stamina, determination, patience, self control- in fact it offers so many benefits for something that is quite simple to arrange.

The criteria is that it has to be witnessed by a coach, or as a parent you can video the attempt on your phone and send to your team coach. From experience I can guarantee there will be more re-takes than a Hollywood film, but worth the effort when your child achieves the next level.
