‘Benfield School of Excellence’ football offers children from our neighbouring primary schools the opportunity to attend FREE outstanding coaching on a Monday and Friday, from 3.30 – 4.30 pm, on our fantastic 4G Astro turf pitches.
On Monday evenings Benfield SOE coaching is supported by Newcastle United Foundation and aimed at Year 5 and 6 students. The children are split into gender and age specific groups to ensure every SOE child has an enjoyable and positive experience.
As we cater for all abilities, Benfield SOE has an Elite Squad for boys and girls. The aim of the elite squad is to challenge our higher ability players; the elite squad will change throughout the year and we are delighted to be entered into a Year 5 and 6 league with elite teams throughout Newcastle.
Our Friday session is aimed at Year 3 and 4 students, with the emphasis on fun games and small sided games – this will progress depending on ability. We have the option to use our sports hall, which is suitable for FUTSAL or the Astro turf, all the children attending have a great time and the Friday session is a perfect platform for transition into our Monday Year 5 and 6 sessions.
Mr Waters and Mr Lawn are both passionate about giving children from our surrounding primary schools fantastic after school sports provision. With over 100 children attending SOE football we look forward to launching our SOE Basketball League from September 2017/2018.
If you are a school in the area or have a child who is interested in attending our SOE please contact Benfield School.
