Our football coaching provides opportunities for our young people with Down Syndrome and their siblings to have fun, make new friendships and benefit from developing gross motor skills. The football coaching also enables young people to appreciate the importance of active lifestyles.

James and Declan are brilliant with the kids they both have their Level 1 FA football coaching qualification, they make sure that the kids have an enjoyable experience while learning basic footballing skills, everybody has a chance to score a goal and they all interact.
Our Saturday morning group has now been running for 18 years, our founding coach Alan Atkinson has recently handed the lead coaching reins to James and Declan who continue Alan’s philosophy of inclusiveness and patience.
We would also like to thank Down’s Syndrome Liverpool who have continued to support costs not covered by the £1.50 charge.
On behalf of the many young people who have Down Syndrome that Alan has coached over 18 years, we would like to thank Alan for his incredible dedication, mentoring and kindness. We would also like to thank Mal for looking after the subscriptions for 18 years.
