Testimonials

WFA is justifiably proud of its reputation with local youngsters and their parents.

Here is just a handful of the many positive comments that we have received.

We booked a WFA party for my son two years running! Max had an excellent time at the party. It was very well organized and the coach was excellent with the boys. The facilities at the club are perfect – just what we want for a group of 10 year old boys! The party is a good price too – it seems great value when we get to use the club house facilities too. The kids went home saying that they loved the party and want one of their own! Thanks again Erik and we will see you on Saturday at Pownall!

Thanks again to WFA and Callum in particular. Harry had an amazing football party at Wilmslow Prep Sports Hall – we have received many thanks from the mums to as the boys all had a great time too! Harry even took his trophy into show-and-tell yesterday!

I just came back from football at Wilmslow Prep School and thought I would send a quick email to let you know what a good job your coaches are doing. I am sure you know this more than most, but always nice to hear it I expect. Your coaches were around after the training and are always more than happy to chat to parents. I mentioned to one of them that the smaller boys did less skills training than the older ones and he explained to me he was working on space awareness and he had split the pitch into 2 sides and you had to stay on your own side (I am sure you know what I mean), and that for the younger age group this is a really good skill to have. The passing and other stuff can come later but awareness of space (rather than all the kids chasing the ball all over the pitch) is a great thing to teach this age group. This completely made sense to me and once again I can rest assured knowing that you and your lads are brilliant. This is the great thing about WFA, we can always talk to you and the coaches about anything… football, training, best place for a decent night out, hangover cures, etc.

We absolutely love WFA and all the coaches, keep up the good work.

Matthew’s confidence and ability grew as a result of attending Wilmslow Football Academy. I think this is due to the friendly atmosphere of the training sessions and the placement of the children into teams of comparable quality and skills. The sessions were relaxed and fun with the required amount of discipline to keep things under control. The children were constantly praised and encouraged under an environment where they were allowed to develop at their own pace. The look of delight on Matthew’s face when at one of the training sessions he was selected as player of the week and I as a parent was very proud of him and I think the reward he received for his efforts certainly spurred him on even more.

My son has tried several coaching organisations claiming to be “elite” or “the best” in the area and they were quite frankly very poor or average at best. Some friends of ours suggested that we go to WFA and we haven’t looked back since. Not only is the coaching fantastic, the whole structure at WFA is very very professional indeed. My son is now totally settled, happy and thriving under the coaches and looks forward to every session (as do we)! He now plays in their JJB Teams and has a whole new circle of friends as a result. His football and confidence have come on a treat. I would absolutely recommend WFA to anyone with a child of any age. Keep up the excellent work WFA! – Debbie x

I just had to drop you a note to let you know just how much I am enjoying your ladies football training on Thursday evenings. The freedom and empowerment I have experienced since the course started is amazing and such good value for only £5.00. Thursdays used to be a very dull day with not much to look forward to, you know, get home from work, help kids with homework, cook dinner, same old mealtimes etc. etc. But now…..all day I cannot wait until 7 o’clock. I literally cannot concentrate on my work during the day, the clock ticks so slowly, it seems to take forever. But then, at 4.30 I’m released from my torture and I dash home (I can’t believe I have not been caught speeding). Nothing is too much trouble as the countdown to Footy begins. Shin Pads On, Socks On, Shirt On, Tie Hair Back and then finally…………….she goes out, I put the kids to bed, crack open a tinnie and stick Sky Sports on………bliss!

I just wanted to take the opportunity to thank Erik and the coaches for all the work and support you’ve given Harry. He has been with WFA since he was 4 years old and his improvement over that period has been phenomenal – tackling seems to be his trademark but his development in skills, passing and confidence to run a bit with the ball have been a real credit to WFA’s coaches. I just wanted to take the opportunity to thank you for the Saturday sessions which Harry has always particularly enjoyed.
