For children who have been part of SupaStrikers, the next step for many is to join a local youth football team. However, choosing the right team is a critical decision; the nearest and/or the most well known team may not always be the best move. Here are some crucial questions that parents should be asking:
At younger ages, it is worth considering whether a local team is even the best option at present. In some areas, SupaStrikers Coaches may run a MaxiStrikers session for Reception Year children. SupaStrikers members from around the Gloucester, Cheltenham and Evesham areas have always been fortunate that we are part of AT Soccer Camps, a football coaching programme for school-aged children which has been running for 20+ years. In programmes such as this, children can learn and develop at their own pace, without feeling that they are playing for their future place in a team. The Coaches are also highly experienced in working with these age groups and understand what works and what doesn't.
Football is a fantastic sport which can contribute massively to childrens' health and fitness, as well as establishing friends for life. Please take this decision seriously and get it right!

If you advise the Coach at the end of your first session that you do not wish to continue, he/she will inform us and you will receive a full refund within 28 days (provided you have not received your child's football kit). If you change your mind after you have received the football kit and left the session, you can notify us by letter or email before your next session is due to start and we will not take your first monthly Direct Debit payment. We would advise that you cancel the Direct Debit as we cannot actually do this on your behalf. We would not refund the Lifetime Membership Fee once you have taken the kit, but no further payments will be due to SupaStrikers even if your child joined in their first session.
