And...re our mainstream section....this is what we feel happens when you invest in a concept unconditionally!
​​​​​​​​​​​​
Taken from BBC football journalist Tom English, report on the Celtic V PSG Champions League fixture, last Wednesday, 13/09/17 at Celtic Park (see BBC link).

These few paragraphs epitomise the aspirations we have at CS for your children, especially re the sentence in paragraph 4; “In a football world that can be so ugly at times, this was beautiful".


"PSG were bewilderingly brilliant at Celtic Park, but for all the accuracy, imagination and goals they delivered in what was possibly the most complete performance by a visiting European side - one of the passages of play that captured them best happened not in or around Celtic's penalty box, but deep inside their own area with green and white shirts buzzing around them.

It was the 13th minute and PSG pulled off an exit strategy that brought momentary ripples of applause - and the odd gasp - from the home crowd. Playing passing triangles in attack is one thing, but doing so close to your own six-yard area is quite another.

This was confidence, control and technique in one glorious package. PSG weren't content to get rid of the ball. They were determined to look after it. 

They passed and passed and passed and worked their way out of a tight spot. In a football world that can be so ugly at times, this was beautiful. Up in the commentary box for BBC Scotland, Owen Coyle and Scott McDonald were open-mouthed, seasoned football men reacting with all the thrill of young kids. They were far from alone.”

SOCCER SCHOOL SUMMER 2017...
What's This?




ALL our Soccer School children on Friday 4th Aug session!!!
(with the help of our CS drone!)






These are the type of 'Rondo' drills we work on - see also 'Soccer School' page for more things that we do during that intense week of ball mastery. The famed CS river game!

Try our Aquinas College sessions Mon or Thursday 530-7pm 5-12 (u12) year olds or 630-830pm u13 to u14s - you don't have to be signed, but keen to be the BEST!

Also our Ronaldo 'Take-On' drill  - see below link


https://youtu.be/WU-yWGu3CLo




We certainly test you!! And you've got to be serious about your football!! With having younger ones in attendance we of course change these to suit levels of ability, but we aim to offer high level coaching also for high level players based on ability-related groups so that players can really excel at all levels - presently we are covering the 5-13 year old groups unless we have a whole team up to 16 years that want to be coached for a full/day week.


.......................................................................

Well done to our u10s - Div 1/Div 5 and U9s Div 2 for their respective cup final wins!

Well done to our U7'S for winning the recent Glossop U7's tournament

05/08/15 Hi Steve, Once again thanks for Jack’s summer he’s really enjoyed it and I can already see an improvement in him – you have a tremendous setup – both very professional but also enjoyable. Cheers Jon Bourne



Congratulations to our Summer Premier league team - winning the title in style. 23/8/15 ...



Evidence that the 'process' DOES work - Saturday Prem at U12s - now champions for 2015/2016.  

Whilst we do and 'are' getting many players scouted by Premier League clubs, we do tend to take on many players/ex-players who have been released and believe absolutely in what we are doing on our journey towards competing with these academies. As we offer something 'different' - we tend to get players confidence levels back 'up' and eye on the ball!


This is a developmental model - of course it is always nice when results start to happen. We have been in existence for just over 2 yearS now and along with our expansion from 1 to 10 teams, it just goes to show that faith in the 'process' can bring about rewards very quickly. If you're interested in joining this project - contact us via the Register page or email us.

The CS City Project


CS City Mission Statement 


Fundamentally, we as adults, parents, coaches take away the pressure from the children in game situations, allowing them to play with both freedom and enjoyment, and without repercussions for mistakes, whilst still retaining their natural desire to win in a competitive environment. Calmsoccer’s ideology, such, combines both mental and technical approaches to develop player skill execution and composure under pressure.


 'We ARE different because we think things need to be done differently'



CS City is the recognised, newly formed non-profit all-inclusive club for Calmsoccer.Com. It teaches players to ultimately become confident ON the ball - even under pressure. In time this ensures players become 'masters' of the art and the rest then follows...3 CS City teams played in the Sat/Sun East Manchester league 14/15 season, two U11's and one U12 team. As we speak we now have '10' teams this season! With new coaches coming on board who also like this development idea, please let us know if you're interested in this concept, it's for players from 5 years upwards.


10 Feb 2015 20:46:53 GMT Comment: Thank you Steve for all your hard work and dedication during the past 18 months, Liam loves the training on Mondays at Stockport Academy and is enjoying the games up at Cedar mount on Saturday mornings where Ian carries on with the calm soccer ethos. The development in not only Liam as a player but all the u8s as a team has been phenomenal, the sessions are both fun and challenging with all players knowing what to work on and how to improve. Thanks once again, Kevin Slack



'At Calmsoccer, we look at the long-term. To produce the very best players, we focus on technical development, confidence and composure'





Meet our 'Parents player' of the Year for 14/15 -U9's. Are you aware that girls can now play mixed football up to the age of 18?We are hoping to encourage more girls to join us and start training with us, with a view to playing for CS. As per all our players, Become a technically proficient player.



TRAINING: FIRST SESSION FREECOME AND TRY IT!!


AQUINAS COLLEGE 4G, NANGREAVE RD, STOCKPORT (BEHIND SPORTS HALL) ON 4G EVERY THURSDAY - YOUNGER GROUP 5-10 yr olds 5.30PM TO 7PM,11-13 yrs 630-8.30PM .


'Even the nervous player can show their inner confidence through positive encouragement and an expectation that they should have every faith in their own abilities'


ALL our players play their matches on 3/4G so they can learn correct techniques and flourish - even at 11-a-side at U13/14 2016/17 season - we are investing in full size 4G pitches for our home games!!


At Calmsoccer, we don't want players getting lost in the system once they have reached open-age and have now set up plans to follow a similar route to the FC United strategy, where players move through the Elite age groups to a newly set-up adult club hopefully in the football league! We run U7s to U13s teams this season and we also play some players up a year.

                           



If you want to see how this method has been successful, please take a look at the 'Success' page.

At Calmsoccer - we promote ball mastery.....             


Why CALMSOCCER? We believe the best players keep a calm head under pressure, so they can see 'clearly' what is going on around them. The ball also becomes 'less' of a flash.

How is this different?


There is very much an emphasis on confidence on the ball - just like the Barcelona/old Real Madrid models - you will see that there really isn't a similar method of coaching being delivered in this country, although clearly things are now changing for the better. We are aim to change the traditional view so that we can compete at the highest level- we don't think that players will excel on any stage unless we take a long and hard look at what the main focus of our coaching should be - after all the statistics don't really stack up when we look at our achievements at the highest level. 


Players are taught to be supremely confident and comfortable on the ball. They are also taught how to develop tight turning/take on skills with the strong/weaker outer leg muscles and are also taught in a fun environment so that the passion for wanting the ball increases. We feel that this is an essential prerequisite in developing confident players, whatever the size.


What Can I Expect From A Calmsoccer Training Session?


During a Calmsoccer session - children will be warmly welcomed into a very low pressure atmosphere by a teacher/ex Man City Academy coach who has over 20 years experience coaching high level players, along with all the CS coaches. We are patient because we think this makes the better player. Don't forget, you will also have lots of fun as you learn!

Do you want your child to achieve footballing excellence?


Ref Daily Mirror - 10th Jan 2011 – ''Just 'how' good are the players in the Premier League? Not that good, according to 50,000 professional players, managers, journalists from around the globe. For the first time, FIFA'S team of the year did not include one English-based player. The team was made up of six Barcelona players, three Inter Milan stars and two Real Madrid players.''
