This weekend we wanted to use our amazing Pro Elite family to raise as much money as possible for the victims of the devastating effects of the earthquakes in Turkey and Syria. Our wonderful community here at Pro Elite did not disappoint! We managed to raise over £1250 across our venues this weekend. The money will be going to a wonderful charity who are doing amazing work to help as many people as they can. We do not want to stop there though… There will be setting up a donation link soon on our website where you can continue to give to this absolutely wonderful charity. Click the link to see some of the truly amazing work this charity has done to help already.
This weekend our brand new venue in Southwark finally launched! It could not have gone any better, we saw so many new superstars introduced to Pro Elite! This is yet another huge step in our journey to make Pro Elite nationwide. It was an amazing weekend and there were so many amazing moments. Read all about what we got up to this weekend below!
Indoor Football Sessions
Indoor Sessions in North London and Hertfordshire
This weekend in North London and Hertfordshire we had over 50 sessions and coached over 1000 children. North London is where Pro Elite started and to be able to coach so many superstars in our local area is such a wonderful feeling. We had sessions for children as young as 18 months all the way up to 7 years old. Each and every week we see improvements from our little superstars, whether it is just improving their “little kicks” to finally being able to do a very tricky skill. We want each and every individual who walks through our doors to become a better individual than they walked in. Whether that is as footballers or young people.
Indoor sessions in Southwark!
This weekend saw our first-ever sessions held in Southwark! We had sessions running on both Saturday and Sunday and we couldn’t believe the response we had to launching so far away from home! It was incredible to see over 50 children across the weekend which is incredible! Coach Freddy said that he was blown away with how good each child who turned up was and enjoyed every second it all!
We love seeing how far we have come here at Pro Elite and launching in Southwark is a prime example of that. This is only the start of our journey and we are enjoying every moment of it!
Development football sessions
In our development sessions, we are working each week on the superstars’ technical abilities and learn how to compete with one another. This is why each week we go through skills to improve and also practice small-sided games. Such as 1v1’s to 5v5’s to increase their competitive nature. We find this very important as it gets them ready to then move into our teams.
Internal League Teams
In our internal league, we had all of our teams playing, the matches certainly did not disappoint! As well as that we took a select group of boys to a tournament hosted by Cambridge FC! It was a wonderful opportunity and the boys performed amazingly and done Pro Elite proud!
GAME OF THE WEEK:
Pro Elite Blazers 5-5 Pro Elite Lakers – Player Of The Game – Jethro & Dylan. WHAT A GAME! An end to end match which saw drama until the very last moment. Both teams played some fantastic football and it was goals galore. There was a player of the game from both teams as we genuinely couldn’t decide between so many of them. A great game that really showcased the quality of our internal league.
Pro Elite Rockets 4-5 Pro Elite Panthers
Pro Elite Chiefs 2-4 Pro Elite Warriors
GAME OF THE WEEK:
Pro Elite Jets 2-1 Pro Elite Panthers – Player Of The Game – George. A game where defending was the biggest part of the game. In football, it’s not all about scoring goals and that is what this game showed. A fantastic performance for both teams where the Jets just edged it. Coach Tyler game George the player of the game due to his fantastic defensive tackles and was very comfortable when playing out from the back.
Pro Elite Rockets 7-2 Pro Elite Blazers
GAME OF THE WEEK:
Pro Elite Heat 5-4 Pro Elite Celtics – Player Of The Game – Luke. Yet another fantastic game in our Internal league. This was a game that saw many fantastic moments which made for a great game. Coach Ali was very impressed with his team even though his team lost. The Heat had a great game and Luke scoring two goals took home the player of the game!
Pro Elite Grizzlies 3-3 Pro Elite Chiefs
GAME OF THE WEEK:
Pro Elite Chiefs 5-6 Pro Elite Warriors – Player Of The Game – Anthony. It was a goal frenzy this week, we definitely had our shooting boots on! Anthony took home the player of the game due to his linkup play and passes that break the lines which got him a wonderful assist. A great game which showed both teams qualities.
Pro Elite Panthers 2-4 Pro Elite Lakers
Pro Elite Rockets 3-1 Pro Elite Panthers
External League Teams
Both our external league teams played this weekend, we had one win and one loss. Coach Nick’s team are now on a seven-game win streak and are absolutely flying. They won 1-0 in a very tough game but their resilience and determination helped to get them the win. Coach Jerrell’s side couldn’t get the win this weekend but they are playing the right football and are developing each week.
Our Famous Camps
This week we had both of our Multi-Activity and Elite football camps running. The whole week was bursting with fun and we couldn’t have asked for a much better way to spend our half-term. We had over 100 superstars each day and each and everyone was wonderful and made this camp the best one ever!
Overall this weekend was a momentous one for Pro Elite, with the launch of Pro Elite in Southwark it is just the first step in a very long journey to take Pro Elite across the whole of the nation. We cannot wait to see where this journey will take us. Check out what we got up to on our first weekend in Southwark here!
