This week we have had some incredible moments, we faced a professional academy and we had one of our coaches selected to represent his national football team! As well as all this, we had all our sessions running which were full of football fun!
Coach Kymani Gets An International Call-up!
We are extremely proud to announce that Coach Kymani has been selected for the Montserrat squad for their upcoming CONCACAF Nations League fixtures against Haiti and Guyana! This is such an amazing achievement and everyone at Pro Elite are so proud of Kymani, we know this is just the start of his amazing football journey! Coach Kymani is also our Goalkeeper Coach. To represent his country at such a young age (19!), as a goalkeeper, is incredibly inspiring to the goalkeepers that look up to him.
An inspiration for everyone at Pro Elite!
We Played Colchester’s Academy!
This week we took a group of superstars to play against Colchester’s Academy! Coach Tee took a group consisting of U8/9 superstars from our teams. On the night the boys played very well and impressed Coach Tee and many of the Colchester coaching staff! It was a fantastic experience for everyone to see. Coming up soon we are taking an amazing group of U11s to play against Watford’s academy. Coach Nick’s team had been playing unbelievably recently and were rewarded with a trip to play Watford to show their quality! We are looking forward to seeing what the boys can do!
Indoor Football Sessions
This week we wanted the main focus in our toddler classes to be learning and improving each superstar’s skills. We wanted to ensure the children had time to learn many skills during the session for them to practise not only at Pro Elite but also at home. We think this is important as we want our superstars to enjoy and be able to practise at home. There must also be lots of fun during the sessions, so we incorporate lots of goals for the children to celebrate with the coaches and their parents!
In our 5-7-year-old classes, we wanted to enhance the children’s competitive nature, whilst learning new skills. It is important for the superstars at that age to want to win, whilst learning. This is exactly what we did, we then finished the session by using those skills in small-sided matches. There were some fantastic moments within our indoor sessions this week!

Development Football Sessions
In our development sessions this week we are always looking to ensure everyone who attends will be able to make the step up into our teams one day! From the first minute of the session until the last we ensure as much time with the football as possible. Each week we want to improve the technical ability of the superstars and then use those in competitive scenarios. We used this in our 1v1s this week focusing on the different ways to beat your opponent. During the session we saw a lot of great moments!
GAME OF THE WEEK:
Pro Elite Rockets 3-2 Pro Elite Lakers
The game of the week comes from our U6/7 Diamond conference with a belter of a game! A top-of-the-table clash! Coach Connor’s Rockets came out 3-2 winners against Coach Tylers Lakers. This was an end-to-end game which had drama throughout! Hasan A scored two goals for the Rockets to take his season total to an amazing 49 goals this season! Player Of The Game: William. William took home the player of the game for the Rockets, after an amazing performance, Coach Connor was very impressed!
