Our upcoming Easter soccer school dates are below, and it would be great to see you all again!

Everyone involved with Shrewsbury Town Community Sports Trust would like to thank all the players that attended our soccer schools and we hope you had as much fun as we did as coaches and we look forward to seeing you on another STCST Soccer School.

The players decided what they included and it was great to hear what they thought of the games they played! The teams showed great team work, good leadership and great respect for each other.

Throughout the week, players from all locations took part in our small-sided world cup tournament. We wanted players to be involved in all aspects of the world cup so once a game was over we wanted a player to do a match report.

World Cup

We were fortunate enough to have 7video come down on Wednesday to video some footage of the soccer schools. It will be great for those people who attended to see themselves in action. They came down and filmed videos some of the players doing ball manipulation work, shooting and putting those skills to the test in a small sided game!

The winning players from each day will be put in the hat and be in with a chance of winning this once in a lifetime opportunity. The players thoroughly enjoyed this challenge with some great shots on show!

The players had the opportunity to compete in a target shot challenge during the week to be in with a chance of doing the challenge at half-time at the upcoming Dagenham and Redbridge home game for our Community Sports Trust Day.

At every soccer school location this week we ran a competition for players to represent Shrewsbury Town Community Sports Trust at the Greenhous Meadow.

Target Shot

After the morning developing and perfecting the skills, we then set the players challenges to see how they can execute the skills in a competitive environment. The players did not let us down! This is what the players saw as they signed in!

As the course is ran by the ONLY Football League club in Shropshire, we wanted to link every day to your beloved Shrewsbury Town. Each day we had the players talk about current Shrewsbury Town players that they think possess good dribbling, passing skills and finishing skills.

On each day players attended the soccer school, they were given a theme of the day. Monday was dribbling, Tuesday was passing, Wednesday was shooting, Thursday was ball control and Friday was fun Friday. Skill of the day

Highlights from the week were:

Apart from a dismal Thursday where the kids had to cope with torrential rain and freezing temperatures, the weather was kind to all the players.

The Community Sports Trust ran successful soccer schools at the Powerleague in Shrewsbury and at the Showtime Security Stadium in Ludlow.

This February half term, Shrewsbury Town Community Sports Trust delivered holiday soccer schools to over 200 children from across Shropshire.
