We approached Pleiades when our after school facility was becoming too busy for us to manage effectively. They impressed us with their friendly approach, breadth of services available and understanding of our business. They have remained true to the ethos of the school and we look forward to building our relationship further

I have known Grant in his capacity as Director for over 6 years now. His teams coaching is always fun and engaging, with a clear emphasis on developing the children’s fitness through play. I think it’s important that children have a good awareness of how to keep healthy through eating well and exercising from an early age. The sessions always challenge the players to develop their ABC’s with lots of challenges. I would highly recommend Grant and his team, both my boys have benefitted hugely!

SkillZone’s training sessions are very different to other youth coaching that my child has experienced before. The sessions are exciting and challenging. The coaching team are full of energy and set very high standards.
SkillZone will develop future technical players like Wayne Rooney and Ross Barkley due to the style of coaching they provide in their programme.

By far my boys favourite club, often wanting to go more often than I've booked, due to some exciting activity that's coming up. Lovely enthusiastic and warm staff doing the holiday clubs.

Both of my children attend Pleiades clubs, which are a great service when you’re a full time parent. The staff are always friendly and welcoming and interact positvely with the children. The office staff are very accommodating and have helped me at very short notice. I would recommend Pleiades to any busy working parent.
Louise Manning - Parent
SkillZone have a very talented team who demand technical excellence at all times. Training was always engaging, high tempo and full of challenges to bring out the best in all of the players.
I would highly recommend the team to help develop creative and confident players, with a great desire to win the ball back when not in possession.
