This week saw so many fantastic moments, we had Coach Ali’s masterclass, goals galore at the internal league and the cutest moment at one of our indoor sessions. The week after our 7th birthday was one of the best here at Pro Elite. So let’s get into what we got up to!
Indoor Football Sessions
Here at Pro Elite, we pride ourselves on offering the best toddler football sessions in the world! To celebrate 7 years of Pro Elite, we copied the same session plan as our very first session. Coach H said how amazing it was to see the growth since we first started, with one venue and 3 children to now coaching over 1000 superstars each and every week! It was a surreal moment seeing just how far we have come on our journey. This week’s sessions worked on coordination, mastering movements and fun! In our older indoor sessions, we really focused on each child mastering each skill and dribbling pattern. We definitely saw a lot of improvement in each child’s ability this week!

Development Football Sessions
At our development sessions this week we had 3 superstars go from our development into our teams! We love seeing the children at development sessions progressing into our teams. This week we were focusing on enhancing each child’s ability with the football at their feet, as well as 2v1’s. Small battles happen all over the pitch and practising these allows each superstar to be ready to compete with our teams which is the ultimate goal. Without a doubt, we cannot wait to see more superstars progress from development into our teams.
Coach Ali’s Masterclass
This week was the first session of Coach Ali’s masterclass. A few lucky children were invited down to have a session coached by Ali himself. A session coached by one of the best coaches around is one to cherish. Throughout the session, you could see each child was invested in improving as a young footballer by listening to each word Coach Ali said. Coach Ali was very impressed by the level of quality he saw during the session and after was buzzing around the place with how happy he was! We cannot wait for the next one already and Coach Ali has even more planned to improve each superstar!
GAME OF THE WEEK!
Pro Elite Magic 4-4 Pro Elite Chiefs
This weekend saw one of the best moments we’ve ever seen at Pro Elite! Before we get on to that, what a game! An end-to-end game which had drama throughout. The Chiefs ran out to an early 3-0 lead but the magic managed to claw it back to an eventual 4-4 draw. This game was fantastic, there were two players of the game, for the Chiefs it was Zach, he had a wonderful game and worked so hard for his team, a very good performance.
Our next player of the game goes to Mason Lucas, who scored his first-ever goal for Pro Elite! Mason has been at Pro Elite since he was 3 and he has been improving each and every week since! Coach Cem has said that Mason has deserved this so much through all the hard work he has put in at training and during matches. It was a moment that meant a lot to everyone at Pro Elite, Coach H was over the moon to see someone who he had coached since he was 3 to get their first goal for the team!

External League Teams
Only one of our external league teams had a game this weekend, our U11s drew 3-3 in a very exciting game. It was an end-to-end game which saw the U11s agonisingly concede late on to draw the game 3-3. Coach Nick was impressed with his team but knows there is stuff the team needs to work on to improve.
We cannot wait for a whole new week at Pro Elite. We look forward to seeing our Pro Elite family this weekend. Have a lovely week!
