Founded in 2011 Techne Global Sports is one of the most respected football coaching companies across South Yorkshire.
Our focus in now on children aged between 4 and 14 years, but the philosophy has never changed… We want to develop the technical ability of children and young people in football while developing their confidence and love for the game in the process.
The name ‘Techne’ derived from Greek mythology in which the Greek Goddess ‘Techne’ (often written in historic scripture as Tekhne) embodied technical skill as an art-form. Our aim is to develop technical ability in football from an early age. To enable us to do this we follow 4 simple steps:
1. Deliver every session with experienced and fully qualified coaches – UEFA and FA licensed coaches, degree qualified sports coaches.
2. Tailored equipment specially designed for young people – we use size one, two and three footballs for all of our sessions. These balls are half of the size of the balls used by adults and are specially designed for young people to develop their game.
3. Support EVERY child to develop at their own pace – Our promise is to ensure that every child gets at least 1000 touches of the ball every single session. To do this we have developed our own programme in which every child gets their own football each session and practices a range of new skills and techniques using our ‘Jinga’ development activities proven to develop the abilities of young children in football.
4. FUN and DEVELOPMENT underpin everything! – Football is a game and we want children to remember that and always love the beautiful game. To do that we keep our games simple and fun, we encourage children to play football on the floor, develop individually and then through team and competition activities specially designed to improve confidence and technical ability.
