It has taken us 10 years just to get to the start line of being a proper club and our mantra along the way has been "purpose makes you strong".
Our Regents way begins with our Toddler and Kids sessions for our 4 to 6 year olds and this program is managed by our wonderful Keeley Kemble. All children are different and learn at different levels, so our coaching sessions will have a variety of ages within them. The key is having fun and in our parents just enjoying watching our young players.
Our coaching way or structure requires specific developmental steps at key moments in the player's growth and to achieve this most effectively and consistently "Age Band Specialists" are appointed to deliver their own key phase of the system.
We base our way on having three to four hours and 2000 touches a week. Increasing to over 3000 with our older players.
U8 & U9 Phase: Introducing Technique,
U10 & U11 Phase: Teaching Technique
U12 Phase: Tuning the Technique
Each session is geared around touching the ball as many times as possible. Basic motor skills such as running, skipping and hopping are emphasised, improving ball control and general movement. But above all the emphasis is on fun for your child!
U13 to U14 Phase: Turning technique into Skill
U15, U16 and U17 Phase: Preparing our player program for University/Senior squads.
All our coaches have been highly vetted and approved. As a matter of course we adhere to all Child Protection laws and guidelines, as well as Health & Safety. All our coaches also have a first aid qualification and have successfully passed through advanced checks with the Criminal Records Bureau.
If you have any concerns or would like to see certificates and documentation you are always welcome to do so.
Kids love learning new skills, and through football training, we introduce your child to new skills all the time which means they experience a huge sense of achievement and raised self-esteem, through praise and a sense of worth!

We know that each player’s journey to his/her goal is not always an easy one, so we are committed to ensuring all members of our clubs have a positive and successful experience. We therefore have the following core beliefs:
We believe that our football clubs should be part of our local communities and that all members and sectors of our communities should be able to participate in our clubs.
We believe that our clubs should be inclusive clubs which means that they are open to all abilities. We want everyone to be able to participate in football whatever their ability. We believe in creating an open and friendly environment in all our clubs so that all our players, their parents and siblings can feel that they belong and can contribute.
We want our players to play to the best of their abilities. We believe in focusing on all aspects of the game from skills training, tactical awareness, physical fitness as well as playing competitive games.
We believe in promoting the highest coaching standards and attracting the best coaches so we provide our coaches with the best continuous training and sports education. Our coaches are role models so we encourage them to have high standards of personal conduct and to be leaders.
We believe in promoting good standards of personal conduct, for our players, coaches, members of staff and mums and dads too! We believe football training and involvement in sport is important for developing our children’s sense of personal responsibility, self-discipline and pride in who they are.
