Founded in 2014 by an experienced professional football coach and a successful primary school teacher, Foot-Tech originally set out to create the next Messi or Ronaldo…but we quickly realised those two are from another planet!

​What we did find was that we could use children’s football training for so much more.

Parents spoke to us about their real concerns for their children – keeping them healthy, making friend and increasing confidence and resilience.

They wanted their child to keep active and not be the one picked last in the playground.

Our curriculum has been developed to tackle these concerns and since 2014 we’ve made a difference to the lives of over 1000 children in Leeds through our weekly group sessions, one to one football coaching, holiday camps and after-school clubs.

All days/times have classes that cater for ages 4-14 years and last 1 hour.

 Saturday: 8:45am, 10am or 11:15am – Soldiers Fields, Roundhay Park

Saturday: 10am – John Smeaton Leisure Centre

Friday: 5pm or 6pm – John Smeaton Leisure Centre

Wednesday: 5pm or 6pm – John Smeaton Leisure Centre

In addition to weekly sessions, Foot-Tech also offers OnlineFootballCourses.com. A football training website designed for kids who want to practise at home. There’s 100’s of videos to follow mixing things like football skills, speed & agility and passing & receiving drills. You’ll find challenges and programs to work through and much more! New videos will be added every month and we plan to make this an amazing development tool for children who want to improve their football. To get access head over to the link above.

It was long believed that speed is genetic – your child was either born fast or they weren’t.

Studies have now proven that speed can be trained, developed and improved.

Foot-Tech Speed is a speed training programme that uses the latest training techniques to help your child enhance their speed, balance, agility and co-ordination – giving them an advantage in sport and everyday life.

The speed training courses are designed and taught by qualified SAQ Advanced Trainers who will guide your player through a series of challenging, fun and engaging practices.

Individual, Group or Team Speed Training all available.

Tuesday:  6-7pm

Allerton Grange School, Moortown,  LS17 6SF

**FREE Taster sessions available, please email james@rugbytots.co.uk for locations and times and to book on.

Fun, structured play sessions take children on a journey of sporting imagination with engaging and energetic coaches supporting them every step of the way whilst teaching how to catch, pass, kick, run with the ball and play as part of a team. Deliver a specifically designed programme for each age group with energy, enthusiasm and excitement.

“Be prepared to run across the jungle, wade through the quick sand or sprint through Rugbytots Valley avoiding all the smoking boulders.”

Age 2 – 3.5:  Youngest classes require full parent participation and offer a fantastic opportunity to spend quality time with your child whilst they learn new skills, meet new friends and have an exciting introduction to Rugby.

Age 3.5 – 5: These classes do not require full parent participation. Your Rugbytot will be part of a dynamic session that will develop their social and physical skills in a positive environment.

Age 5 -7: Older age group classes really start to prepare children for life after Rugbytots. The same structure is followed but these sessions involve advanced team games and ensure that the basic skills of rugby are coached in the right way by maintaining small class numbers.
