1st Touch Football Academy was set up in November 2010 by Director of Coaching Tobi Hutchinson.
In this time, our reputation has spread across Sussex as a place where children of all ages can enjoy top quality football
coaching from experienced and well qualified coaches, in a safe, well structured environment.
Our aim is to bridge the gap between grassroots football and professional football club academys' by improving the individual and
putting together a toolbox of skills that they can use to improve their game.
For some this will mean opportunities at a higher level of football, for others it will simply mean playing football to a higher
level. Either way, we aim to send footballers away from us with an improved ability level, an improved appreciation of what makes a good footballer and an enthusiasm for the game that will fuel many
years of enjoyment.
We now run coaching sessions covering a range of topics and techniques, three nights a week, offering
boys and girls the opportunity to enjoy their football more than ever before.
Some players have gone on to be registered with professional football clubs and many others have experienced going on
trial at these clubs helping them develop as players and offering a wonderful experience.
However, we also have many players that simply love the
game and have a desire to improve, these players are every bit as important to us.
At 1st Touch Football Academy, our experienced coaches, our structured coaching programme and our
overall love of the game, will help you become a well rounded footballer who plays the game with enthusiasm, helping your child
fulfill their potential to the maximum.
